|BC_ZX3||Unlikely, IMO, but a compression test would answer that for you.|

|bigrigjim||would it still crank normal with no strange noises and try to start with a bad valve seat?|

|bigrigjim||engine cranks normal plugs were damp with gas but clean, cleaned and replaced|

|bigrigjim||if it is a valve seat it should show up as loss of compression in one of the cylinder right???|

It's possible. Another poster on FF recently had the timing belt go on their car (not a Focus) after coming to a stop at a light.
And just to confirm: Engine spins freely (sounds OK mechanically)?
What do the spark plug ends look like? Sooty and black or wet with fuel or?

I can't find the thread, but one guy just went out to start his car for work and it was over.
But here is this.
