    Seems like a good assessment if it's not starting given the problems over the weekend.

    Re: Car Trouble...

    is your car fitted with a semi automatic gear box? It could be bad.

    Re: Car Trouble...

    is there a code reading that comes up with this? I would get a scan or better yet, call a FORD dealer and ask them, then repair self. I would pay $100.00 for a diagnostic and then fix it myself.

    Now that you've gotten opinions from a panel of experts, it sounds like your whole car is probably toast and you need a new one.

    Re: Car Trouble...

    If its manual transmission, check your clutch. If its automatic, start with transmission fluid and go from there.
