is it diesel at all? The focus c-max diesels have a fault with the EGR valve that causes engine to cut.

I have the same problem exactly - the car starts with the key after losing power when turning a corner.

I received this from the following website:
"Problem of all Focus models suddenly losing power seems to be due to the failure of the 'fly by wire' electronic throttle sensor."
