Have they completed a fuel drop off test/leak back test??? also have they replaced the injector harness correctly? i know this from experience. number 1 and 2 injector harness can easily be mistaken. Oh while they are at it, get them to check the cylinder compression.

Ok a update on where I'm at with this car! Garage put second ham ecu in car today and it is still the !Removed! same! Recoded injectors onto old ecu and the car cranked for a bit the. Fired up on its own accord left running for about 20 mins. Switched off and started about 10 mins later and then the car refused to start even on squirt of easy start. Garage said they put a hand primer pump onto pipe that comes from tank and connects to fuel filter primed up and car started and if you don't keep revs up it cuts out also the hand primer looses pressure and you have to re prime.

Sounds like u got an air leak in the fuel lines somewhere which is causing it to drop pressure

I know sometimes the fuel filter cap can cause pressure issues if the seals are broken/blocked. Try getting it to start and run with it off

Hello Dean,

 

Did you ever get this repaired? If so what was the fault please?

 

I just had a problem of my 2002 TDCi Focus cranking but not firing for no apparent reason. After a bit of research I replaced the cam position sensor and now the car starts perfectly.

 

All the best,

Mark
