Hey xFOCIx,

I'd hate to lose you as a member of the Ford Family. If you'd like, I can document product feedback on your Focus. If you're interested, please send me a PM with your full name, VIN, and servicing dealership.

#1fordfan I noticed something this week. I had to replace the battery in my 2005 because it was 8 years old and the cold finally got to it,long crank times seem to be gone!!

Highball116 I have a 2005 and I do not have trouble with long cranking. Seems the car used to have some issues with that, but after catching up on deferred maintenance from the previous owner, I never encounter it. We got the car a year and two months ago with 137,000 on it, and it now has 175,700. I couldn't tell you what fixed the problem, but somewhere in there (come to think of it) the damn thing stopped doing it.

SlickWilly What do you mean by bumping the key. My 02 F-150 had a long time to start and my 03 did not. Now my 09 I only need to flick my key as it pretty much auto start's itself.

focusrenton thank you whynotthinkwhynot. I am new to this so I didn't want to make a new thread for something that had already been posted. I will clean or replace the MAF and see if that helps my issue.
