SOURCE: timing belt broke -2000 ford focus zx3

Hello mawbea: My name is Roger I will answer your question. You did not say which engine is in your car. So if you have a 2.0 SOHC engine. If the belt broke you should be Ok. If you have the 2.0 DOHC engine. The likely hood of bending the valves are just about a guarantee. How ever with any engine using a timing belt it is possible to bend a valve.Should you need more help please just ask.
Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received helpful information.Thank You for using Fix Ya, Roger

You will want to find out if you are not getting spark or not getting fuel.
If no fuel, then bad fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, or bad fuel pressure regulator, or bad fuel pump relay.

If no spark, then bad crank sensor, or ignition module, or coil packs.

Thanks to Steve (FORDSVTPARTS)...he helped me with this a few weeks ago...so I used most of his instructions, and added some stuff. Everybody's had problems with this...and everybody thinks that it is going to cost a ton of money, or you have to drill it out...well you dont...here it is:

1. To replace the cylinder you just remove the column shrouds to gain access to the cylinder, you will need to be able to turn the cylinder to remove it the easy way.

2. If you are having problems getting your key to turn then try the old "hit it with the palm of your hand method". This should be enough to get the key turned.

3. Turn the steering wheel 1/2 turn to the right so that you have easy access to the lock cylinder, and some working room. With the key turned to the "on" position, there is a small hole in the housing, that the cylinder goes into, that faces towards the driver, Use a small pick or philips screwdriver or whatever will go in the hole, push in the release pin inside the hole and the cylinder slides right out.

4. If you absolutely can't turn it you will have to drill it out or take it in somewhere and have the job done.

5. Once the old cylinder is out the new one slides in by aligning the "d" shape inside and it will now work, That's it.

Note: Most dealerships will build the cylinder to match your keys, some charge for this and others don't. Just call the parts department, give them your VIN...and they can look up your Key Code, cut you a Non-Programed PATS key, and build your new ignition cylinder off of that. Or you can take them your programed key (if you have a spare). If you are like most if us that leave your key in the ignition once you start having this problem...DON'T TAKE IT OUT. This will help you in the removal of the broken cylinder. Hope this clears up everyone's questions.

Good luck and if your not sure, call a lock smith. The cost is around $80.00 lock and installed.

2000 ford focus 2.0 doc my lights started flickering like strobes before and I redid my grounds then yesterday it did it again and went to get on freeway in rush hour and it died p0320


Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0320 is defined by SAE J2012 as "Ignition/Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit".

This DTC indicates that two or more successive eratic Profile Ignition Pulse (PIP) signals have occured. Possible causes are:
> Loose wires and/or connectors
> Short circuit to ground in the secondary ignition system (coils or wires)
> Incorrectly installed 2-way radio
> Faulty battery/charging system operation
> Interference from aftermarket accessories such as alarm systems and remote starters
The troubleshooting charts for this code are quite involved and lengthy. There are many possible variables that must be checked and verified. I do not recommend attempting to diagnose this on your own at home unless you have access to the proper testing equipment to do so. You will also need to subscribe to an information service such as alldatadiy.com so you will have access to the troubleshooting information for your vehicle.

I need ignition coil diagram ford focus 2000 LX (connections back 4321)


you have a single 3 or 4 pin connector to the coil pack. Someimes the wires get corroded and break off at the connector. Ford has a pigtail kit to fix that issue. Usually a misfire with the check engine light on.

Green/bluestripe is from ignition switch

Black/green stripe is to PCM (computer)

Black/orange stripe is to PCM

These last 2 wires are what the PCM uses to fire the spark plugs 2 at a time.

2000 FORD FOCUS IGNITION REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS


Your ignition is what supplys your spark pluggs with electricity in order to creat combustion in your engine. Most older cars have distributers, if you drive a focus with a zetec it will have a coil pack. I have a 2002 Focus SVT that I upgraded the ignition system to a full racing system for around $200. What you need to change is the coil pack, spark pluggs and spark plugg wires. You only have to remove about four bolts on the coil pack and it just pulls out.

Focus wont start


there is no actual reset procedure- if its not starting, reseting the pcm will not fix the problem. i would suggest checking the fuel pump or ignition system first
