Ford focus 2001 just cut out and now wont start

If the car turns over really fast then it could be the timing belt, Does your car have an immobiliser? with it starting and running for a few seconds it sounds like an issue with the key not communicating with the car.

My 2001 ford taurus does not start, it acts like it is running out of gas.

Turn on key and have someone listen by back of car for fuel pump running it will only run for 5 or 10 sec with each turn of the key. Not running check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay. Take another relay out from another spot and swap them to see if it works

2001 FOCUS starts fine unless on a hot day after running errends, will not start, if you keep your foot on gas keeps running but when you take your foot off it stops. Will start up again when cooled 15...

I would go with the fuel pump or the IAC (Idle Air Control Valve) Due to the fact that you have to keep the throttle on to keep the vehicle running that would be a sign of a faulty fuel pump or IAC. I would have the mechanic do a little more diagnostics before letting them cut lose on doing just one or the other.

I have a ford focus 56 model and sometimes it does not start no mileage working and when it does start sometimes dash lights stay on and the accelerator is slow like a flat spot.

I have a 2006 Focus and I am having the same problems. I have already replaced the battery and it hasn't helped. This is not a constant problem. Only every couple of days and then she runs fine. However I have noticed my gas peddle sticking when I first try to give it gas. Then it clears up and runs fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My Ford focus is acting strange.It starts ok,idle ok, but sometimes when you press on the gas it choks.Any idea what can cose this?

Ford focus can have a timing belt about to break,have it checked,and replace it ,if it breaks,it will not start,and it will cost you.The valves in the engine will be bent if the timing belt breaks.

Runs rough once it warms up

With having that many miles and the light being on with a code of O2 sensor, I'd say start there. Make sure which O2 sensor it is first, pre or post convertor. It's getting close to another tune up, but check your plugs first.
