Ford Focus QuestionsRefine by vehicle
There is not a visible location to add fluid back into the manual transmission clutch.
intermittent to begin with now all the time
No money to add coolant to radiator. Light is on. Can I fill it with water?
It was in an accident,wont start now ,it was minor damage to hood and bumper,found fuel cut off switch and reset it ,it has a code that says keep alive voltage to low ,what could this be?
The car wont start ,the fuel pump doesnt come on when i turn on ignition but if i use starting fluid it will start and keep running ,could this maybe be the crank sensor?
cost to repair front and back suspensionswith heavy duty struts and shocks absorbers and labor costs estimated
I just did a timing belt change, changed timing belt pulleys, the waterpump, added a cold air intake, autolite xp iridium plugs, motorcraft oil change with motorcraft filter cleaned the MAF using CRC maf cleaner, clean plug wire boots, freshly sealed the valve cover, flushed and cleaned the cooling system.
Ok before i did all this the car would not drive. It all started with a hard vibration while driving and then shut off. The car would then crank and start but when put into gear shut off. I replaced the mai. Engine fuse after it blew trying to run in this condition and then replaced the air intake on the original air cleaner box. The car thwn startef again moved about five feet n shut off again. The idle was fine at this point but when put in gear would become very ruff n shut off.
So i towed it home and perfomed tge fixes i mentioned above thinking my problem was my timing. I used the propep timing tools (bar and pin) and follwed professional instructions on setting the time properly. I used everything that was recommended by ford no substitutes.
After i finished all tge work i crunk up the car which started on the first crank but sounded louder than usual, seem to idle a little ruff but would smooth out when the gas is pressed. If i rev it up n let off the idle smooths out more but comes back at times. The car did seem to drive rather fine tho i only moved from one driveway to my other. I am wondering if the car just needs to be driven a few miles so that the computer may adjust. If its the new intake that seems so loud because tge sound is mostly coming from that area. Which is close to trans. Pan so it could be trans pan that is making noise hard to tell. Or if my timing is somehow still off. I was thinking IFF my timing was off like that the car wouldn't start and if it did even pressing the gas would not smooth it out.
If anyone has suggestions please let me know.
Im hoping i just need to drive a few miles.
Electrical Gremlins...t.lites bulbs burn out...h.lights & dash lites flicker...completely DEAD at times on starting...heard may be cluster circuit board needs clean? ALSO diodes alternator? COSTS? Thanks
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
I am trying to find out if it will be fine to take the car on a 3 hour drive this weekend without the heat shield on.
I got gas and then went to start the car and it would not start
Injectors flooding cylinder # 2 and # 3
Have changed Injectors but still same problem.
Also Battery light on dash had (alternator) tested and its ok.
New plugs/wirescore//head gasket/intake gasket
Car starts! but soon floods #2 and #3 with to much fuel....
What should I change now? Tourque or Gearbox or both of them? Thank you
