2010 Ford Focus QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I have to forcefully turn the key while pushing in to start the car. It is extremely hard for me to do this because I gave RA. The problem is getting worse.
intermittent to begin with now all the time
Changed the spark plugs now the idle runs rough. Also sometimes problem starting engine. It also has an egg smell and will disappear after a while. The engine light does not come on and there is no code to check. Main problem is rough idle and starting engine. What is the cause of this problem
When returning to my car I press the unlock button on my keychain control and just the driver's door unlocks. But the doors that won't unlock change from day to day. when the front doors won't unlock with the button on the inside of the door or the keychain control, you can pull on the inside handle (like you were opening the door) and it will come unlocked but you have to pull really hard.
Rear drivers side door will not open. Have tried everything short of cutting it.It did this before but all of a sudden worked again.Then 2 months ago it closed and won't open again. Had the same issue with the rear passenger door, that got fixed after a car/deer accident, but body man had to cut hole in door to get it open to remove.
My car indicates the number of miles to empty on the dash. It changes too quickly. It's indicating that I have traveled more and I am losing gas.
Every time the car is in idle, the engine makes a consistent rattling noise. I also hear this while driving. I'm not sure if it's the muffler or two separate issues.
Car Fails to start from a dead stop. No apparent Rhyme or Reason. No clicks, whirs, moans or groans. Just silence when the key is turned. This is the 4th time it has failed. Not in Cold weather. Might get out at a restaurant and come back to the car to only find it will not crank, turn over or make a noise at all. Battery was replaced/ computer was replaced, throttle body was replaced, nothing could be found to be replaced this time. We are older while the car does not stop on the road, if stopped it might not be able to be cranked and the place may not be close to home and I have to call AAA. I have heard that sometimes the position of the steering wheel and the tension of the wheels on steering that is not straight might intefer with starting . I also have heard that the computer has a problem and it has been replaced. We need help. the car is in great shape and too young to trade. Thanks you ... Your Aunt & Uncle who need Help from Ford
