Hi,
My name is Jennifer. About a week ago I purchased a used 2000 Ford Focus ZTS 2.0L
and now I'm having a huge problem with it. I put the key in the ignition, but for some reason I can't get te key to turn (either back or forth). I'm able to get the key out though, but no success turning the engine. What can I do? And how much do you think I'm looking at here?

It's a common problem with focus. You'll have to replace the ignition switch and cylinder. Sometime you can get the key to turn by attempting to turn the key with one hand while lightly taping on the end of the key with a hammer with the other hand. It's just a temporary solution tough. To get an estimate, you need to call around town and ask how much they charged to replace your ignition switch/ignition cylinder.
