Question about Ford Focus
Are you sure that it is a fuel problem? Spray starting fluid in the air filter and see if it starts. If it does start, then you know for sure that it is a fuel problem. If it is a fuel problem check to see if your fuel pump is coming on and pumping. You can do this by removing the gas cap and have someone listen real close to see if the fuel pump kicks on and runs for about 5 seconds when you turn the key to the on position. If the pump does turn on, then it could be fuel pressure. Without the gauges to check pressure you will have to take it to have it checked. I have replaced fuel pumps before and still be the fuel pump. They do occasionally send out faulty pumps from the factory. Another thing could be the filter on the bottom of the fuel pump. If it was not installed properly, it will lock up the pump immediately the first time you try to start the car.
