03 ford focus Starts and run for short period at a time then dies but restarts and again for short time.


If that does not fix it, then it is not the fuel filter but at least a fuel filter is changed and then you get to change out the fuel pump. That sucks.

Ran fine, shut off. Came back out, turned over but not start. Had jump started twice but put in gear and died. Question: I know low on gas, can this effect anything?


Possibly a fuel supply issue. Will require a fuel pressure tester. Could be in tank pump or a bad fuel pump relay. In a quiet environment, turn key on (not start position ) and listen if you can hear the guel pump run for 1 or 2 seconds.

1989 Ford Probe engine stalls. Will run intermittent and run up to 5k RPM...then die. I hear fuel relay click under dash (replaced w/fuel pump, inertia switch & fuel rail regulator). Wiring? Air hose...


First, the power relay turns on engine computer. Then the engine computer turns on the fuel pump relay which in turn, turns on the fuel pmp for 5 seconds, unless the engine is running. If you have a new pump, check for spark right after it dies next time.

1988 ford ranger ( 4 cyl ) Fuel pump kicks on, motor starts and runs approx. 5 to10 min. and dies. Turn key back on and can't here fuel pump.


It sounds like your fuel pump is overheating. Once it gets too hot the bearings swell and the pump locks up. When it cools, they contract and the pump works again. It is also possible the fuel pump relay is having a thermal failure. You can determine this by hooking a voltmeter into the fuel pump supply wire and keep it where you can see it while it is running. If the voltage goes down and then the truck stalls, it would be the relay, if the voltage goes down after the truck stalls, it would be the fuel pump. Since the pump is only running when the engine is running, once the engine dies it'll turn off the fuel pump so it is important to pay attention to what happens first.

It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.

Car died like it ran out of gas, but just fueled up.


This sounds like the timing belt issue. I have a 2000 ford escort zx2 and it seemed like I ran out of gas but really the timing belt had just worn down. When I was on the side of the road it was like the engine was turning over but would never start.

there should be one in the tank and a boost pump on the back of the cylinder head,you can hear the pump when you turn the key on (normally) also check your crank shaft signal,the low pressure pump should produce between 2.0 to 3.0 bar

Stalling at idle


Bought a use 03 last week for very cheep because it was idling rough, read in a forum about focus vacuum leaks and to use small burst of starting fluid to find the leak, spray around engine, if you hear the engine level off and run smooth in a particular spot for a few seconds the leak is in that general area, check the hose in that area, i found a large elbow on my pvc valve line was cracked in half, repaired with copper plumbing elbow fitting and silicone. now runs perfect. be very careful with the starting fluid short burst in well ventilated are.
