  4. Focus Wont Start

    yes ive got fuel, spark, and rotation on turnover, the plugs where soaked with fuel which evaporated after about 10 seconds but replaced them anyway, would the crankshaft sensor stop it from starting like this ?

  8. Ford Focus Wont Start

    It's getting spark on all 4 cylinders and the immobiliser light goes off after a few seconds so that's fine, is there anyone in the Cheshire area with a zetec compression tester that could help me out as i haven't got any money for 2 weeks and need to get my car back on the road :/
  9. Ford Focus Wont Start

    Yer I'm lucky the belt hasnt snapped haha, took the plus out before and they where soaked, put new plugs in and fully charged the battery but nothing still, fuel rail is not blocked and there's nothing coming up on diagnostics, don't think the head gaskets gone as the oils still perfect, any more idea's?
  10. Ford Focus Wont Start

    Its a 1.8 mate and the cam belt hasn't gone as you can see the cams turning when you turn the key
  11. Focus St Cambelt Change

    just checked autodata, it just says check tention of the chain every 20,000 miles during service as the timing chain can come loose
  12. Need Answers With Customisation

    yes they are but it if you ring round a few breakers yards youll be able to get a full st kit for roughly 250 pounds, bargain in my eyes
