Anyone ever clutch start an MK3 focus?
Has anyone successfully clutch started one of these? I have a 2013 SE and i've attempted to a few times (with a good battery), i've done it how I normally do in other cars but no luck. Turn the key to the on position, select 2nd gear (also tried 1st), sink the clutch and let it run downhill then release the clutch while pressing the gas pedal. When I do that the tachometer will go to maybe 2000 rpm while i'm holding the gas pedal but it doesn't start.
At another time i'm planning to try releasing the clutch a bit slower and i'll also try turning the key as someone told me that when they clutch start their amarok they have to turn the key as well, dont know if that will work as that's a right hand drive vehicle and you dont have to sink the clutch to start it.
