When i went to go crank my car it would not turn over no matter what i did. Finally after being fed up with this lengthy problem going on for about five to six months i took it to a mechanic only for them to get it cranked and told me it wasn't all the way in park. Anything i can do to prevent this from happening again?
I only need it on the left which the spring is broken & top of strut is shot. I was told by you need to replace both sides to have them in balance. This site including labor suggests approx $500.00 yet three places... am I missing something here? I can't afford to get ripped off. Any suggestions where to go?
Have installed 4 different brands of fuel pumps in the last 3 weeks trying to find one that doesn't spray gas out of the port the fuel line plugs into. We've double checked the port, line, gaskets, lock piece, but nothing seems to help.
How do I fix or what could the main problem be ?
the shops could not get a reading on the OBD so I could no get my car Inspected what could be the problem there is no bad codes no engine light on Its a 2001 ford focus
I'm on fuel pump number 4, I've also installed a new fuel pressure regulator,new spark plugs,new plug wire set,new ignition coil. It's hard to start and idles rough with a strong smell of fuel coming from the exhaust. Check engine light comes and goes. What am I missing?
to start.I also replaced plugs, wires and ign. coil.Rough idle and fuel smell at tail pipe. Check engine light goes on and off... I'm out of ideas.Anything you can think of?
Everything worked well for a week after replacing the battery and the alternator.
I am not sure of which service exactly I am in need of. My car is a 2000 Ford Focus SE DOHC.
Battery light would go on then off. Last time it was driven battery light stayed on. Then started to smell like eggs-opened hood
and battery itself was steaming, battery acid leaking from battery. Towed home. Took off battery cables and they were melted.
Had alternator, drive belt, and battery cables as well as a brand new battery replaced by a mechanic. He didn't correctly put the engine lift bracket (right next to the alternator) back. Not sure if this matters or will change the function of the car.
after everything was replaced Now car will crank but wont start.
Battery warning light, as well as check engine light is on now. Not able to pull any codes using personal code scanner.
I need to get it fixed but I don't know what service I should get first when I go to mechanic. I don't want to spend a bunch of money for unnecessary things.

Thank you
It did not fix the car,they put a new computer n it still didn't fix,engine light still stays on they dont know what to try next,i lost!
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
I replaced fuel pump, enjectors and filter. The car still doesnt have any fuel delivery to the cylinders. I can start the car on starter spray so the ignition works fine. My computer says there is good presure in the fuel rail but this thing still doesnt run
