Question about 2000 Ford Focus

2 Answers

Fuel pump. I have ford focus year 2000 done 62000 miles. Recently the 10amp fuse blew on the fuel pump. The Ford garage who has serviced car since new diagnosed faulty fuel pump from diacnostic reading (which they would not give me a copy of). I was told by a Electrical engineer who used to work for ford and now works for AA who collected our car they have a common fault with the voltage regulator which regulates the power to the fuel pump and cost £12 and 30 minutes to fit if that to replace. Should a fuel pump develope a fault at 62000 miles and why would th garage not give me a copy of the diagnostic reading as I paid £68 for the privilage of someone telling me the feul pumps gone when the AA guy stated it can only be one of two things the VR ot FP any advice on how t tackle the problem; as the ford garage dont seem concerned.

Could you please confirm your model type? My fuel pump has seized and i called Ford to check if there was a recall on my modle (Yr 2000, LX) have been advised they're isn't but i'm not surprised! The first indication of this problem was the fuse blowing. It was pulling 18amps on a 15amp fuse although apparently this should normally only pull around 8amps. The AA replaced the fuse and off i went - for 2 days - it's gone again and a new fuse isn't helping now. AA engineer said that these can intermitantly seize before going completely. Have just been quoted £353.42 from Ford to replace.

I have a 2000 ford focus and there was a recall for a defective fuel pump. THe dealership replaced it for free. You should check Ford recalls for this problem.

2003 Ford Focus stalls Austin, Are there any stored trouble codes to help diagnose? Has regular maintenance been done,fuel filter, air filter, clean MAF, plug wires, plugs, injectors cleaned.
Check for vacuum leaks and your PVC hose it may be collapsing (seems to be a common problem on this vehicle). Remove and clean EGR. Check the attached links,instruction and guides on why Focus stalls. Good luck

WHEN TO GET A TUNE UP FOR MY 2006 FORD FOCUS IT HAS 62000 MILES AND I BOUGHT IT WHEN IT HAD 45000 MILES


a vehicle needs to be serviced regularly to keep it in good operational condition, most modern vehicles don't need a tune up as such but should be serviced by a qualified mechanic at the intervals specified by the manufacturer (every 6,000 or 10,000 miles}.....hope this helps......cheers.

Recently replaced the fuel pump and Battery. Seem to run really rough, like it's RPM's are high. I drove it about 10 miles, then turned it off , started it up and drove 10 miles back to my house and it ran...


a very common problem with those is that the intake manifold leaks and causes the car to take in more air than what it should resulting in high revs, take it to a garage and get it checked, it should be an easy fix and shouldn't cost alot either.

How do i replace a fuel pump on a 2002 ford


It woild be better to just to buy a new pump, from your vehicle sitting for three years the gas inside the pump became gummy and has a build up of varnish.
it would be more time and cost effective to just buy new one and be done with it.

During hot days in summer, car bogs and dies now in spring.


your fuel pump is going.

there was a 10 year unlimited mileage warranty on 2000 focus for this issue, but not sure if 2001 was included. The internal filters in the fuel pump clog and starve the pump. New stlye filters went into prodction but not sure if all of 2001 had the new design.

Blown Fuses - Dead 1998 Ford Escort


Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed

My first suggestion is always recurring to a qualified mechanic.
In your particular case there is an issue with Focus fuel pump, and Ford guarantees free replacement in many countries, ask to your local dealer, to find out if you can have fuel pump replaced for free.
