Customer Question
We have a 2008 Ford...
We have a 2008 Ford Focus, that won't start. We put it on a diagnostic machine, and the only thing that showed up was cold thermostat. Would this stop it from rolling over? It was driven to work that day.

It said cold thermostat. not sure of the code. It won't crank over at all. The battery is up. He replaced the starter.

Standard or automatic transmission? Have him test for power to the starter when someone turns the key switch to start.... If not power to the solenoid from the key check all fuses and relays first and let me know

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
