Question about Ford Focus
Driving at 4000 revs, car died. Towed to garage and crankcase sensor had failed. Renewed sensor and working. Car wont start. Had auto electicion look at it, sugested ecu. Had ecu tested with key and cluster. Everything good. Still wont start. Any suggestions?
Sorru without my heads in the engine i couldnt tell you ,but providing that everything is ok like timing belt and oil and water ect then what i do with these engines is too use a external fuel pump and pressurise the fuel from the outlet of the filter to the common rail pump ,often they get a air lock and defy all but you know who.musnt say god in case i offend the muslims or the jehovehs or somehting but that normally works ,now another tip depending on year and look in the intake pipe from the turbo to inlet manifold and see if your one has a sensor halfway along this pipe ,if it has remove it and make sure that it isnt full of oil as this stops it from starting and make sure their isnt excessive oil in the turbo pipe indicating that the turbo bearings are worn ,then the oil builds up in this pipe causing this sensor to not read stopping the engine from starting ,as for a crank sensor then never had one fail as yet ,its whats known as a hall sensor its just a coil that a reads a magnetic field ,and yes its favourite among a lot of get rich quick garages.Especially opel dealers on the zafiro/astra range of engines when it just the computer needs remapping as its bolted to the engine and get hot . But thats another story
