Question about Ford Focus

2 Answers

My mom has a 2002 ford focus SE with 27,000 miles on it. She drives it to work 10 miles round trip and to run small errands. When she turns off the vehicle, it will not start. She has to wait 20 minutes to 3 hours before she can restart it. No check engine lights, no indicators for overheating or anything. The O2 sensor replaced, alternator replaced, and fuel pump replaced, to no effect. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it?

    OH MIGHTY WISE ONE.(COUGH COUGH) I didn't buy the Ford. I personally HATE fords and tried to discourage her from buying one. But mother's never listen to their kids. The saying for Fords always rings true Found

    Oh Great and Mighty wise one. If I asked for your opinion on what to buy and not to, I would not be on here. I CAN'T STAND FORDS myself. I tried to tell her not to buy one, but when does a mother listen to their kids? The saying of Fords always holds true;
    F ound
    O n
    R oad
    D ead

    You will always see Fords disabled/ broken down on the side of every road way.

    I only asked how to fix a problem that noone seems to know how to fix.

My wife's car has been having the same problem. I have heard it might be a faulty thermostat. I haven't had a chance to take it to the shop though as she needs it for her daily driver.

Ford Focus SE 2002 wont start, no smell of it flooding?


If it was the fuel pump it wouldnt move at all but you can test the pressure on the fuel rail on top of the motor. Have you changed the fuel filter?

How do you reset the computer so it can go through emmissions.


I would veture a guess the failure is an emission code problem and the conditions for the failed problem are not met. Make sure the fuel level is just below 3/4 full. That will allow the emissions tests to run. You can also disconnect the battery cable for 10 minutes and that will reset the fault counter.

You may have 2 separate problems, check the bower motor resistor first, if it's bad replace it and THEN you should have the fan blowing on the lower settings.

If the ac turns on after you fix this then problem solved, if not it may be unrelated have a pro look at the ac.

During hot days in summer, car bogs and dies now in spring.


your fuel pump is going.

there was a 10 year unlimited mileage warranty on 2000 focus for this issue, but not sure if 2001 was included. The internal filters in the fuel pump clog and starve the pump. New stlye filters went into prodction but not sure if all of 2001 had the new design.

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!
