Ok heres the deal, It started out as just a miss in acceleration and while climbing a hill, But the other day I filled up w/ gas and the car would not start after about 5 or 10 minutes it crank up, Ok I drove the car home and parked it, went to get in it and leave and it would not start again, So I let it sit over night went out the next day to try it and it Fired right up, and it has'nt sterted since then. I have checked the valve on the fuel line to see if it could be the fuel pump, It is pumping gas to the lines, The plug wires are getting fire so that eliminates the Coil pack, I was told that the car will still start even if the Camshaft Sensor has gone out, I pulled the plugs out and they were in pretty bad shape, Im planning on putting new ones in tomm. The car is turning over its just not firing, If anybody has any idea what it could be your help would be greatly Appreciated.

I think your first step would be the plugs. Change them and inspect the old ones. They will give you a ****load of clues as to whatis going on in your engine.

Is the C.E.L. coming one at all? If it is get it read. If it isnt that makesme think its the plugs.

Sounds to me like you need new spark plug wires. If it was damp when the car wouldn't run that would pretty much prove it. Examine the wires and see if there is any white discoloration, cracking or pinholes in any of them. If there is, change them and it's probably not a bad idea to just do new plugs at the same time. Make sure you gap the plugs correctly when you put them in too.

For future reference in case anyone has similar problem, it was the fuel pump. I just hepled him put in a SVT Focus 310 lph pump today and it fixed the problem.

Before we put the pump in, there was a little fuel coming out of the valve on the lines, but when you would try to continuously turn it over, only a little would come out at first, and then nothing. When you do this, there should be a steady stream of fuel coming out of the valve as long as you're trying to turn over the motor.

When we first tried to crank it after the new pump, it still wouldn't crank. We primed it a several times though (turn to KOEO, let the pump come on, turn back off, and repeat), and it fired right up after that. I assume this was just necessary to get air out of the system from the install of the new pump.

I thought I'd just post this in case anyone has this problem in the future.

Cliff Notes: If your car has been missing and suddenly won't start, it could be your fuel pump.

Scary stuff.
