Customer Question
Hi, are you able...

Hi, are you able to provide quick help for engine not turning over?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the engine spark at all? Is there a trouble code or is your "check engine light" on?

Thanks- none of the above, it appears that the engine is trying to start but not as though there is no fuel but there is

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2005 focus

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Focus yourself? What have you tried so far?

Never had any issues before, went out to the car to leave for work and it will not start, have tried presssing/resetting the fuel disengage switch in the passenger door.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks for your help

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
