it has been happening for awhile

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

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.

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?

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.


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.

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

i have a hole in my AC evaporator and i need the labor guide for it and the drier

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?

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

Rebuilt automatic

When the weather is damp, when I leave for work sometimes my brakes squeel when I am stopping at a light. When I break quickly then drive and push the brake again it doesn't squeel. I have been told it has been 4 years since brakes have been looked at. Do I need to have the brakes replaced or can they be turned or what?

Engine temperature is irrelevant, the heater will not blow warm air unless the car is in motion. A friend suggested this morning that it could possibly be a failure of the heater core. And today the outside ambient temperature was down to nearly the freezing point. Car has 95K miles on the odometer.
