Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Engine turns but won't start

My engine turns but will not start. I have replaced the spark plug wires, the spark plugs, Cleaned all the senors like the manuel said. I still can't start the car. If it decides to start, when I put it in gear such as reverse or drive it won't go. It stalls out then the engine won't start for alond time again. I need some advice.

What year is the focus, And have you checked the ford recalls on the car? I know that when I owned my focus there was a recall with the fuel pump in the tank and i had somewhat of the same problem myself. If your only getting gas to only ONE spark plug, your issue probably lies somewhere in your fuel delivery system (i.e. Fuel pump, fuel filter etc. etc.). Which would also describe the " It stalls out then the engine won't start for along time again.". Let me know, I'll keep trying to troubleshoot with you. Good luck!

1983 Capri RS WONT START it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel turns over fine just wont start


Points or electronic ignition? Corroborator, or fuel injection? Was the car sitting idol for a long period of time, say, 6 months to more than 1 year? With a car that old, I would start with replacing spark plug and ignition wiring. Have you checked the spark plugs? Make sure they're cleaned and gaped. If corroded, replace them.

check your grounds. I find many easy fixes by cleaning all the grounds around the engine bay. I would also check the ground at the fuel pump connector that wiring is prone to corrosion and breakage

1990 Cadillac Seville won't start. Is it the electronic control module?


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My 1998 Dodge Durango won't start. No spark


check for power at the coil. There should be power anytime the engine is cranking. If there is no power let me know and i'll get you some more info.

If there is power check for pulse on the other wire. If there is pulse than replace the coil.

if there is no pulse I can get you more info on that as well.

It cranks but it won't start. I got a new battery, cam position senor and crank position sensor. took out the ignition control was told that was still good.


Check for spark at the plug wires to spark plugs, no spark on anything, then suspect a fouled job replacing the cam position sensor.

I have a 2000 kia sportage that cranks but will not start what might it be?


When en engine won't start, there could be a number of things wrong. An engine requires air, fuel, and spark to start. You need to start by checking for spark. Take out one of the spark plugs and plug it back into the wire. Have somebody else turn the key while you hold the plug up to something metal on the engine, right next to the spark plug hole will be fine. You should see a bright blue spark, if you don't then you probably need to replace the spark plugs. You can do this same thing with any of the spark plugs. If you don't have spark on any of the plugs, get back with me and we'll go from there.
