Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Car wont crank over
I have an ignition problem, the stater moter dose not respond
Posted on Sep 04, 2008
I've got an 87 CRX and had the same problem. It started by just dying on the road, but would start back up. The problem got worse until eventually it just cranked over and over but did not start. I went nuts checking all the obvious...coil, distributor, fuel pump. Somebody told me on some CRX models there is a fuel cutoff valve in the event of a wreck. I don't have one on mine but you may have one bad on yours. I eventually tracked my problem down to the ignition switch. It provide power to the starter for cranking, but as soon as the key was released, it lost electrical contact. Hope some of this helps. Good luck.

Remove the timing belt cover. Set the crankshaft/piston in the correct position. Now check to see if the camshaft sprocket is align with the witness mark. Both the crankshaft and camshaft has to be aligned else your timing is off and you will have to take the belt off and re-installed correctly. Even if off 1 notch.
Hopefully you will never buy another car with a timing belt. It's a false economy saving.

If the engines are the same they will fit, the splitport and the zetec use different trans.
