You may not have enough fuel presur yet. try this -
turn key to on, listen for fuel pump noise (humming) for about 5 seconds. If no hum, you have a problem. If it hums, good. Now, turn key off for 30 seconds and turn key to "on" again. Repeat 5 times. Then try to start car.

The fel pump does run in "start" mode continually.

My 2008 Ford Focus won't start no fuel delivery to filter is this the fuel pump if so where is it located on the car?

is the filter plugged to the point of not allowing fuel flow. if its good then the problem is with the fuel pump either the pump itself or an electrical problem with the wiring or plug.

Ford focus 1.6 diesel 09 plate. Engine management

first idea is to have an accredited workshop specialising in your vehicle to run the fault codes. Dirty/blocked fuel filters can be a big problem but a proper diagnosis can be done from the fault codes

My 2000 ford focus dohc stalls n loosing power wile driveing then stalls n u have strong exusust smells

Hello, You may benefit from a FREE scan of your car at Autozone, Advance, or Oreily autoparts stores. If your problem started after getting some gasoline, this does sound alot like bad gas.

The self Diagnostic computer in your car should make the "Check Engine" light activate if it is a Mechanical defect. There is a part called a "Throttle Position Sensor" which sets the timing and fuel flow for the conditions the engine needs to run at. These settings change almost instantaneously and a failing part could make it work intermittently.

The balance of the Engine Management System would generate a traceable Code. If the exhaust smells like Sulfur, there is usually too mush gas. A sweet exhaust smell indicates an Internal Antifreeze leak into the engine head, and your Antifreeze level will draw down. Stale gas has a Metallic smell like steel melting in a Foundry oven.

If the Diagnostic tests do not confirm anything, then try getting a fuel sample done and have the Fuel filter changed at the same time. There is pressure in the system and you may need to bleed off the pressure before the Fuel filter will come off. This can be a messy job. There are also tools specially made to decouple the filter.

That is about all I can recommend at this time.

Have just changed fuel filter on 2010 Focus1.8 duratorq engine and refilled filter cannister. Engine started and ran until cannister emptied and then stopped. Refilled cannister but would not start. How...

Turn the ignition "on" without cranking the engine - wait for 30 seconds.

Turn the Ignition back off for 10 seconds.

Repeat 3 times.

All air will be purged back into the fuel tank.

Diesel focus run out now needs bleeding how do i do it

most of the ford diesels have a lift pump to supply fuel. My experience is the the larger engine like 7.3 and 6.0's but the only thing you should need to do is go to your fuel filter. crack it open so fuel can flow out. have someone turn on the ignition but do not start it. run it until the fuel starts to come out the fuel filter housing then shut it off and tighten your filter housing back up. turn your ignition on but dont start it. you should hear the fuel pump kick in. wait a few seconds and then try to start it. after a few cranks your engine should start.

Ford focus 1.8 turbo deisel 1999.

do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.
