Turned ignition on, car seemed to start but made a brief rump sound as if engine was racing, but no sooner I tried to put it on drive, engine turned off. What can it be and how much will repair cost?

After driving steady for an hour, when I pull in line behind somebody - drive thru, my car sometimes starts to overheats. The temp gauge indicators rises alomost to the red. I turn the heat on and put the fan on high and within 60 seconds, the guage returns to normal. The thermostat and housing was just changed and the same thing happened again. There are no check engine indicators on.

Dealer performed an oil change & said that front sway bar was getting loose.

every time i start the car and i'm checked the gas cap

need to replace vapor canister need instruction on replacing

About 2-3 months ago we had an engine coolant flush.

I discovered this a couple weeks after I purchased the car,(used). I had the dealer shampoo it 3 times but it is still oily and they offered no suggestions as to why it is that way. Could there be something leaking that is causing this? I have taken it to 3 mechanics with no solution or ideas.

The guy at autozone said it seems there is a blocked vacuum hose. The code says IMRC is stuck open -- probable cause is Short circuit, damage to the IMRC, or blocked vacuum hose. The check engine light is staying on.

Battery is good, doesn't sound like the starter, brake light is on and so is the
ABS light. Turns on when it wants to, please help. I was suggested to change the terminals???

my 5 speed hesitates and sputters like it is choking when i change gears

The lights are out for right half of the directional vent dial and all the interior fan dial, as well as the light that indicates the cruise control is on. What do I need to replace?

It started blinking tonight. I parked my car and shut the engine off. After I started it, the light went away. What does it mean and should I be worried?

They are flattened and cause the engine to vibrate.

When you step on the gas, the knocking sound starts

Car has received a new alternator and battery within the last 4 months. The check engine light came on as well as the check battery like, but after cleaning the IAC valve, the check engine light went off. However, the battery light continued to come on intermittently; could this be caused by the fuel pump? Currently, the car cranks but does not start, and will not take a jump.

Looking for repair estimate

A/C is not on when this happens. Mechanic could not duplicate condition and had the car for 3 days. I had the car for 3 days after and when I was on line at a fast food restaurant, it began to overheat. i turned the heat on high and it cooled down.

Tried jumping the car and would not start. Have lights and full electrical. Tried to start with the key no sound from key turning over, no click but have electrical. Could it be a blown F9 fuse?

Does anyone know the part # or where to buy them? I may just go to local junk yard. These cables plug into the Teperature control switch and run to the blend door.

Thanks

I was just told by an oil change shop that my power steering fluid was dirty and needed to be changed. Since I did not see this listed in the maintenance schedule from the mfg I wanted to see if this was common to replace or if it was symptomatic of a larger issue with the power steering in my car.

For a couple of months now my 01 Ford Focus has had a very rough idle coming from a cold start, sometimes it has a hard time turning over to turn the car on. After about 10 to 20 minutes of driving in the city or on the freeway the sound seems to get better at idle. Also the engine sounds a little rough coming from a stop and accelerating but seems to dissipate when driving at a constant speed.

So, I am not sure what this means. They said it would cost a lot of $$$ to take everything apart to see what the problem is. It sometimes comes on for a couple of days, then goes away. I drive a long distance to work and home and also pick up my daugther. Can anyone help me? I really don't want to pay a lot if it's nothing. My car just hit the 90,000 mark and I would like it to last another 90,000 miles.

The one on the right side is so bad the whole car vibrates constantly.

it only happens when I turn on light s heater or anything else, checked fro power from battery and it shows normal voltage 14.00 volts. battery is new. Does anybody knows what can I do. Thanks.

Hi, I think the Passive Anti-theft System (PATS) of my 2005 Ford Focus ZX4 SES has gone bad. The car starts but the PATS light in the dash board keeps flashing if I turn the ignition off, also when the key if removed from the ignition and when I get out of the car and lock it. In all the above instances the PATS light keeps flashing. How can I reset it or whats wrong with the car?

I just got a used car and the owner was not sure about the car has a belt or chain. So I wanted help with that. Also it would be nice if you could advise about the maintenance I need to undertake for my car with respect to the requested part.
Currently its driven about 70k miles and appears to be in good condition.
Thanks.

1st time this happen's what could it be

without power locks and windows?

For awhile it would work on high and several times turining the car off and then back on got it going. But it has quit completely with not even circulate outside air.

Have replaced the idle air control valve twoce with only tempory relief. Also cleaned throttle body giving temp relief. No engine light ever comes on. What signales the throtle body to increase rpm at idle position & no pressure on the gas pedal.
