As with any no-start situation, someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs.
You may also have a failed timing belt and no engine compression.

SOURCE: ford focus, 2000 zx3 code p0455

your engine code means "big leak" in the evap control system, this system has alot of pieces, but you are looking for a vacuum leak most probably, look at your vacuum hoses, and refer to the vacuum diagram stuck under your hood for routing, see if you have a bad hose, or disconnected hose some where. these are small vacuum hoses that attach to the purge valve, air filter housing, and charcoal cannister. let me know what you find.

Testimonial: "Found the leak on the purge control valve. The hard plastic vacum line had holes worn in it from vibration. Thanks"

SOURCE: changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no

if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck

2000 FORD FOCUS: TURNS OVER, BUT WON'T START.


go to any national chain parts store and they will pull the code for you-I'd guess based on what you wrote that it is a crank or cam sensor, or a bad ignition module.

Car won't start, key turns, and ignition clicks and car has electric power. Could it be a spark plug problem?


Can not be the spark plugs. When plugs are bad, car starts, but misses and misfires. If the ignition clicks and engine does not turn over, then you must have either a starter motor, or starter solenoid gone bad.

When do spark plugs need changing


Ford recommends 100,000 miles on the original plugs. That is ok to do as long as it isn't missing or giving you any indication that they need changing. I hope this helps.

2001 Ford Focus stopped running while i was driving and wont start. Makes a churning sound but no power is going to engine. I changed the ignition coil, still wont turn on. Any suggestions?


Can you explain more so I can help. What do you mean still wont turn on, engines doesn't start or starter motor doesn't turn. Have u taken out a spark plug and connected it to the cable put the end of the spark plug to a ground and make someone turn on the engine for a few seconds you should see some blue sparks. Carefully use gloves. If no sparks, spark plug is bad next thing to check instead of putting the spark plug in the cable put Philips screwdirver put the screwdriver near a ground not touching about one inch make someone turn the engine for a couple of second you should see the spark jumping from the screwdriver to the ground, If there are no sparks ignition coil or spark plug cables are not good. But u say u changed ignition coil so maybe your cables are not good. There is a connector near the ignition coil disconnect it and turn ignition switch on measure the voltage you should have in between 12vdc + or - .5 vdc if no voltage present there is a blown fuse, Check for it

Fuel and spark/turns over but wont start


you don't say if it wants to start, if it tries, if it does, maybe an issue with exhaust gas reculation system stuck open. OR dirty or clogged fuel nozzels.
