Question about 2001 Ford Focus
My ford focus check engine light came on and the car started shaking and quit running. I t turns over but won't start and someone told me I need to change the fuel filter.
Run a fuel pressure test, and check the fuel pump relay, in the underhood power distribution box, if relay is good and you have power at the pump with no fuel pressure then you have a bad pump

Fuel filter most likely will not fix your problem.- the best thing would be to see what the check engine trouble code is and then go from there. there are way to many things that could be wrong to just throw parts at it, but if thats how you want to go at it i would probably say the fuel pump is a more likely cause than the filter.- i have never replaced a fuel filter on a ford for a no-start.
