Question about 2001 Ford Focus
The car died as I was getting off the highway and would not start back. I replaced the fuel filter and spark plugs. It won't start its like it's not getting enough fuel will not turn over.
What Needs to be done is First Check The
Inertia Fuel Shutoff Switch
Located Behind the Driver side (KICK Panel) Witch is @ your LEFT Ankle When sitting in a Driving Position. If it"s ( OUT ) Push it and then Cycle In
Ign. Switch on & Off 3-6 times then Start Engine.
' var HIGHmap142725841 = '' // -->
Second IF Shutoff Switch Is NOT The CURE Then Next Procedure to Perform is a FUEL
PRESSURE Test 40 PIS and up Is Geed . IF you DONT have
Pressure tester, Being Very CAREFULL Diing it But you Can remove Test point Cap and With key
on Depress the Shcreder Valve / with Eye Protection and in A Well Ventalated Area When you
Press the Valve You should get a HEAVY Pressure Blast of Fuel from the Valve,(If it Tricles) then
This a very good indication that The FUEL PUMP IS FAULTY. From What You have Discribed the
Fuel Pump IS SUSPECT.
NOTE: Install a new fuel pump module seal and make sure it is seated correctly on the fuel tank prior to tightening the locking ring.
WARNING: DO NOT SMOKE OR CARRY LIGHTED TOBACCO OR OPEN FLAME OF ANY TYPE WHEN WORKING ON OR NEAR ANY FUEL RELATED COMPONENTS. HIGHLY FLAMMABLE VAPORS ARE ALWAYS PRESENT AND MAY IGNITE. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY.
