So my 2007 Focus Petrol 1.8 Zetec Climate wont start. It just cranks over.
It worked with no problem until 2 days ago. As soon as I engaged reverse up a very slight incline the engine died- it was a cold January evening and we had just done a 5 minute drive followed by a 2 minute drive.
Next day I found it had no oil on the dipstick whatsoever. So I filled it - actually a little too much as it is just above the top marker. Still no start. (FYI- I don't believe there is a leak- I've never seen any oil puddles left by the car)
Battery was just a little low- I took it out and trickle charged it and that is now good, but as I said the engine does crank and all expected electronics turn on in the car.
I've put in 4 new spark plugs.
I've checked the fuse is good for the fuel pump, which I believe I can hear on ignition as well.
I've opened up the coolant and can see no problems there.
There is 1/2 tank of fuel as well :)
So whats next? Do you have some ideas to help me in the right direction?
Haven't tested the spark plugs are actually sparking, or the engine compression- are they worth doing?
Any help appreciated :D
BTW, it's done 66k miles. Full serviced in June 2018, done 10k miles without service since then.
