Question about 2005 Ford Focus

2 Answers

Why does engine die right after starting, then you wait 10 minutes and starts and runs good.

1999 Chevy Blazer 4.3, engine starts, runs about 5 second, dies and then won't start, if you wait 10 minutes it starts and runs fine, this happens once every few weeks/months or twice in one day, no set pattern. have already changed fuel pump, fuel filter and upper intake on top of throttlebody.

Temp sensor! It’s a variable resistor that alters fuel and spark to preserve the BS emission system based on engine temp.... lean engines run hot, rich engines cooler. So ecm uses that as its determining input to ruin your day and save the earth

Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

SOURCE: Dies after running about 2 minutes

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

I saw what you replaced, didn't see any testing? What testing have you done? Make sure battery has a full charge?
When the problem is ongoing, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Any applicable trouble codes?
If you have the spider fuel system, that system is noted for problems.

You may be having an intermittent failure with the fuel pressure regulator - checking the fuel pressure when the truck won't start may pinpoint this problem. If the pressure looks OK, this same problem can be caused by the ignition system as well (ignition coil or control module).

Chevy blazer will start then dies, wait 15 minutes it starts and runs good


Trail Blazer has a very cool 'plastic' intake on the Vortex series. I would have the intake checked out, or just replace it with a new one. Don't reccomend a used one since it was a common problem.

I have a 1997 chevy blazer it died yesterday at a 4 way stop the engine just stopped.No engine lights or anything came on.Got it out of the road and after sitting for about 20 minutes I got it to start but...


Check for fuel pressure and check for spark during the no start condition. Also check the crank sensor, it is located behind the crank pulley mounted in the engine block on the 4.3 L engine
I hope this helps.

2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason


i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick
