2000 Ford Focus Questions
Engine light off but has been on twice over 6 months. Was going to get spark plugs and wires done today but I understand may also need coil, etc. I am floored when I see costs paid for these things around $200! I am broke but need a car...anything I can do myself to cut down prices?
Third replacement is brand new
the failed test gave me a P401 code, fuel senser. I took to my mechanic and he said it was the fuel pump. He changed the fuel pump and the engine light continued after a couple of days. I went back and my mechanic said I had to replace the fuel pump again because my ignition was burning it out???...
2000 Ford Focus Recalls
Ford has recalled certain 2000-2005 Focus vehicles in states that use road salt because corrosion may build up at the pawl pivot area of the rear door latch. This may prevent the door from latching properly. If this occurs, an occupant could fall out of the vehicle. Dealers will install a lower rocker seal to the door to prevent corrosive material from entering and will evaluate the rear door latches, which will either be lubricated or replaced.
Ford has recalled certain 2000-2001 Focus vehicles because the filter in the fuel delivery module may be contaminated. This may cause reduced fuel pressure, which can lead to hesitation, loss of power, and surging. Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module.
Ford has recalled certain 2000-2001 Focus vehicles because the battery cable insulation may become damaged. This may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate and the vehicle may fail to start. Dealers will secure the battery cables as necessary and verify proper routing. If insulation damage is present, the cable will be replaced.
