The engine light is constant. The mechanic who looked at the codes said it was due to problems with the smog device and would cost $500 to fix.

when you turn the key no sound is heard at all. still has all the power to car and will start when crossing the starter with screwdriver

Had car inspected and on the receipt the following was written: "EMISSION CONTROL DEVISES AND GAS CAP-Repaired Inspection Items: 1. 79.24(i) Gas Cap Check" Prior,I had Engine sensor replaced because engine light stayed on after it had been reprogramed. Does the above means that all that was wrong was the gas cap?

My compressor is broken on my 2001 Ford Focus which has 90,000 miles. I was quoted $1200 to replace compressor. Should I replace or trade cars?

I drive my car seldom [twice a week]. All city driving, maybe 25 miles a week. I use synthetic oil.

I have minimal front end damage (knicks on the bumper, the ford emblem fell off, bend at top right hand side of hood) from a solo accident. The hood still shuts and locks but it comes up an inch or two if I go over 50 miles per hour. I just want to know if this is a safety issue and if it needs to be replaced soon. If it does, how much would that cost? If it just needs repairs, how much would that cost?

Whatis the average labor cost to replace racketpinoin?

fan speed control wont work

My daughter has a 2001 Ford Focus and the ac went out. We took it to the ford place here in somerset, Ky and they stated that the compressor, dryer and reciever must be replaced and quoted me a price of $900.00. I check the parts place and if I had to replace the above the parts are only 400.00. Anyone out there that can check to see what I really need. Signed: hate to get ripped off. Daughter is going to EKU this fall

I was trying to find out where the cooling sensor is located at on a 2002 ford focus in an 2.0 engine.

Car wanders right and left on wet pavement like hydroplaning but not consistantly. Tires are good and it doesn't seem to be as bad at under 50 mph.

a week ago I struck a curb and the rt front passenger wheel came off completely. Since the car left the shop, it doesn't feel right - every bump in the road makes the rear sway and the steering wheel wander! Could the suspension have been damaged in the accident?

I have a 05 focus sometimes when I put it in park it revs up
