Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

We added freon to a 2001 Ford Focus this evening, and left the car running for quite a while. Before the lady bleft, I decided to check things over and found corroded battery terminals. Cleaned em, put it back together, and now the car cranks and starts like normal - for a second, but the dies as if you turned off the key. On retry, you get clicking - put it on a charger for 45 min till we were down to 2 amps - no change. What's up with this?

My 2001 ford focus ac light is blinking but hot air is coming out. I just had freon put in the car one can

it might need another can, with ac on and controls turned to ac max the compressor should start cycling as the freeon is added. if not you might have a low or high pressure switch that is bad check fuzes incase you blew the fuse for the ac compressor

Just had aircon regassed on 2002 focus bowers working aircon light on but not cold at all

If freon was added because of a leak, it could have leaked down again. If freon levels are too low, the compressor will not switch on. Check to see if the center (it is connected to the compressor shaft) of the compressor pulley is turning.

A/C quit working

these cars have a switch that shuts down the compressor when it is overfilled. (to much pressure) take it to a shop and have them correct it. There is no way to do this yourself with out a set of gauges and they are more expensive than what the shop would charge to do it

How do I change fuel filter.

fuel filter most likely will not fix your problem.- the best thing would be to see what the check engine trouble code is and then go from there. there are way to many things that could be wrong to just throw parts at it, but if thats how you want to go at it i would probably say the fuel pump is a more likely cause than the filter.- i have never replaced a fuel filter on a ford for a no-start.

It was a vacuum leak. look for unplugged or cracked vacuum hose, examine the hose thoroughly for it it quite dificult to see a small cracked hose creating a vacuum leak. then get back to me.

01 focus will start and run for about 5 min,then sputters a bit.

Depending on the mileage, this happened when our fuel pump blew on the highway.Barely made it back home...was brought into shop the day before and nothing was wrong. Hope this helps
