Mine did something like that a long time ago, back when i had the bad fuel pump on my car, if i was almost outta gas or like half tank parked on a hill that made my car slant to the left, but i doubt thats ur problem. maybe ur wires/distributer, probably not. mostlikly the starter.

Do a SEARCH on the forum. This has been discussed MANY times before, it has to do with the 2000 model focus only it seems. I believe there is a TSB or recall on this, can't remember, either way do a SEARCH.
