Question about 2001 Ford Focus
The car cranks over but will not start it has spark and has gas when you crank it over and then pull the plugs there is a lot of gas on the piston like it is geting to much gas it there a sensor or something that could cause it to do this i know it is sparking but it is like it is flooding and wont start
Im not 100 percent sure , but if the car has an imobiliser sometimes if your car battery has lost a lot of charge the car will crank over , but will not have enough power to disengage the imobiliser. try jump leads to another car and see how you go .

First you have to determine weather you
have a FUEL problem or (ELECTRICAL)Spark problem ??
Pull the coil wire off or a easy to get
to spark plug wire, Lay it close to were you pulled it off of (Do not
hold or touch you may get SHOCKED) and crank motor (need two people)
look and listen for a spark, if you see or here a spark, then go to
next step which will be to check for Fuel (gas). Be very careful when
checking fuel, as most lines are under pressure and may cause bodily
harm such as BURNS to EYES and SKIN!! Loosen or pull the inlet fuel
line off and put rag over line. Some fuel injected vehicles have a
fuel rail the has a valve that looks like a tire valve. Put a rag
over this valve and push it in with a small screw driver and have
someone crank motor a couple of times to see if fuel is coming out.
If NO Spark---Could be a lot of things
Points (older vehicles) Modules, Coils, Crank Sensors, ECT......
If NO Fuel---- Could be Clogged fuel
filter, Fuel Pump, Fuel pump Relay, Fuse, ECT..........
Hope this helps you ??
