Flooding 2002 ford focus lx

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 ??

I have a 2002 ford focus. This morning it made a clicking sound and would not start. About 20 minutes later it started, I turned it back off and it started again. What could the problem be??? I am afraid...


Your battery is dying. It is also possible that its the alternator but if the battery is original it is almost certainly the battery and it will likely do it again until the battery is replaced. The clicking sound you heard is the starter solenoid trying to start the car (but failing). The reason it started later is because the internal temperature of the battery had risen a enough to allow the solenoid to "pull in" and start the car. Any autoparts store can test the battery/alternater for free and confirm which is the problem.
