This is jason and in the caption above you said its a diesel right well nin diesel fuel there is a lot of water start by checking where the fuel filter is there shjould be a valve that can release water like on diesel trucks the light will come on and say theres to much water in fuel or whatever maybe that might be the case the sensors just might be reading water rather than fuel.

Ford focus tdci not starting and white smoke coming out of the exhaust


It is a clear case of the glow plugs malfunction. It had happened with my neighbor who tried to start his diesel focus one day.
Even jump starting with another battery didn't solve the starting problem.

You could also check the EGR valve for damages and if you want to save a couple of bucks, then go in for used parts for the focus from Good used Focus Stuff

2003 f250 6.0diesel will not start has fuel at fuel filterwill try to run on starting fluidwith interminent spray


fuel at fuel filter doesnt mean its getting the correct pressure to operate the injectors. do not spray starting fluid into a diesel motor, you will damage the rings, score cylinder walls, burn valve guides... etc . starting fluid is not designed for diesel engines. the only way to test the fuel system is to test it by hooking up a pressure test gauge to the service port. the next most likely issue would be a faulty glow plug relay or 1 or 2 faulty glow plugs.

the low pressure valve is the longer skinnier one. The low pressure valve should be on the fatter of the hoses in the engine compatrtment. Try close to the compressor. if you stil cannot locate it i can check my service manuals or the exact location.

since this is a standard and you need to engage the clutch which basically shifts you into neutral to shift gears, this ALMOST sounds like the idle air control valve.

High pressure oil pump leak.


the high pressure pump provides the pressure to your injectors so the diesel luel can be injected at high pressure. You should fix this immediately. Call your dealer and ask for some help from Ford on the repair cost ahead of the repair. See what they will do.
