    I have a 2001 Ford Taurus and the times the that has happen it had something to did with the oxgen flow. I got the part for $127.00 at after Firestone charged me $1,200.00 to change out sensors that had nothing to do with it and would not refund it. This has happen to me twice along with the front end always shakes really bad since I bought it. I have continually replaced the brakes and struts at different shops and even at the dealer. The car has all sorts of problem and the dealer's only solution is to keep replacing parts that were suppose to be new at the time to no avail.

It could be an engine mapping problem. There should be a fault code generated by this incident.Take your car to a ford dealer to have it checked out. No engine = difficult steering and next to no brakes, not nice.

06 ford focus 5spd. no 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear.

It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.

If anything happened in the engine to prohibit complete engine rotation I would strongly suggest you do not try to crank the engine. The starter will try to crank the engine regardless of whether or not complete rotation is possible. If you can't crank it manually the starter will have the same problem.

As far as what happened to the engineit could be anything, especially when accompanied by "a big bang".

Good luck Loringh
