I was curious if anyone has had trouble with their Focus starting during cold
weather? I have a 2004 Ford Focus ZTS, I live in Wyoming, and it seems that as
soon as the temperature drops in the mid 20s or so, the car spits and sputters
a bit and sometimes dies when I first crank it up in the morning. I am
planning on buying an engine block heater and installing it, and hoping this
will take care of the problem.
Does anyone have any suggestions on other things to do? Heet in the fuel?
Also, does Ford recommend changing the engine oil, which is synthetic, at every
3000 or 5000 miles? Will any damage be done to the engine if it is left to
5000 miles? I do normal driving, not a lot of city driving.
