Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I have a 2003 Ford Focus that will not start. I've had misfire problems in the past so the coil pack and wires are all about 15months old, the spark plugs are about 2 months old. I had the crankshaft sensor come up on the check engine diagnostic and as of today there is a brand new one in. The car cranks but does not turn over, all I hear is a popping sound.
I've seen other posts which mention the cold weather, so I thought I'd include that I'm in Texas and the weather is 61F which is somewhat cold for the area, but not for the rest of the nation.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
If it's getting fuel and is making a spark then the timing has to be off. Making the assumption that it's got a timing belt, I'd guess it jumped on a misfire.If it has not been replaced in a while you would want to do that as they stretch overtime and need replaced from time to time. If this is the problem you may have also bent a valve, so ceck the compression too.
