Question about 2001 Ford Focus
The 2002 ford focus lx starts great but when it got below 0, it still started good, but after a minute it dies, and then wont start back up. I had it towed, the mechanic changed the spark plugs, it ran fine and 3 weeks later when below 0 weahter hit again, it did the same thing. Towed it again, they put thinner oil in it, started good, then.. died. I had it towed again to another mechanic, he had a high end scanner and the only thing he could find was a restricted exhaust when it gets to 4 below, which he discovered was a well known problem for the 2002 focus, any insight ??
PossibleTemp Sensor as it Determines for ECM to go full Rich in cold weather If That Doesnt Correct it. I Would Just Get a Block Heater then it wont Sence COLD temp and go Full RICH.
