Are you almost out of gas... if there's more water in your gas tank than gas it will freeze or gel up

check your battery voltage with a multimeter. it should be atleast 12 volts... sometimes coils can go bad too, that will result in car turning over and not firing...although i don't know much about the coils on the focus's. i don't know the proper way to check a coil aside from pulling a plug wire and looking for spark, just don't touch any metal when pulling the plug wire or you'll make a nice path to ground for the electricity..LOL
