2003 Ford Focus won't start after thermostat housing replacement.

Asked by Jan 26, 2016 at 08:44 PM about the 2003 Ford Focus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The large coolant hose between the radiator and the thermostat housing ruptured. I replaced the hose and refilled the coolant but the car wouldn't start. The thermostat housing was leaking so I replaced that but still can't get the car to start. I have spark on all 4 cylinders. I couldn't get a code. Any ideas?
