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.

SOURCE: cranking problems

Does the key turn? Or is your steering wheel and ignition completely locked up?

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus new timming belt installed and

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.

SOURCE: will a transmission for a 2002 ford focus fit a 2004 ford focus(both are sedans)?

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

Check for spark. Remove a spark plug and attach the wire back on, then hold the plug against the engine block and have someone crank the engine. Watch for a spark.

Cranks over but wont start pops though intake or back fires


Your description is that of a timing issue.
Either your distributor is off or your timing belt has slipped...
Time to have the timing check/adjusted/corrected.

Cannot be another issue...that I know of

Installed new timing belt plugs wires coil crank sensor still wont start


Check to see if you have spark/fuel. If you don't have one or the other, you most likely have a bad crank sensor (spark), bad cam sensor (fuel), bad fuel pump if you don't have pressure, or a bad PCM. Probably need to get it checked out somewhere to know for sure.

Focus timing belt replacement.


This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.

Fuel and spark/turns over but wont start


you don't say if it wants to start, if it tries, if it does, maybe an issue with exhaust gas reculation system stuck open. OR dirty or clogged fuel nozzels.
