Startup Trouble For 2005 Mk2 1.6 Ti-Vct

13 September 2012 - 03:30 PM


First post - having trouble with my Mk2 Focus:
Owning a mk2 2005 1.6 Ti-VCT Focus Estate, the engine has recently developed troubles while starting.
The engine starts to spin, but it just doesn't get going.

At first it happened 1-2 times a week, then during a day. And now I have to start it 3-4 times before the engine properly starts. Doesn't matter if the car has been parked in the garage for the whole day and night, or if I just parked it for 5min and am starting it up again. A few times it starts immediately again, but lately that's rarely the case.

Are there any suggestions, if there's something I could do in my own garage, check or swap something on the engine?
I'm not that knowledgable when it comes to car-tech unfortunately...

I will upload a video of the starting in a fewminutes, hopefully that helps.
EDIT: Small video I recorded regarding this problem:

Thanks in advance!
