Hi guys
I have 1.6 petrol we bought about 6 weeks ago all seemed ok until the weekend.
Tried to start car and it was cranking but not starting.
It’s happened a couple times since when finally got it started from jump start.
Took to my local garage and they recommen going to Ford- they tell me £120 ph for diagnostic checks
Any idea what it could be?
Thanks

Very amateur mechanic here. Mine had the same problem (same model). I got a higher rated battery and that solved it.
When it is running, any cheap diagnostic reader should give some codes but the garage would know this.

My Dad's car (not a Cmax) had an air filter that was not seated correctly. On the Cmax I think the air filter torx screws stay attached.

One gadget I find handy is a 16mm Torque Limited Socket for checking/changing spark plugs. Bought online.
