Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

How easy is it to fix the throttle position sensor myself?

I have a manual 2000 Ford Focus ZX3. My mechanic said it would cost $170 to fix my TPS so the check engine light would go off. Am I getting ripped off? Is this something I can easily fix myself?

Whats the fuse to change in a ford focus zx3 hatchback year 2000 for the change engine light


when i was working in my local ford dealership the only way we were able to remove that light was to access the vehicles ECU and delete the trouble codes that were on there. provided there is no actual problems with your vehicle clearing the codes should solve the problem. if there is more to it then the codes will reapear and bring that light back up.
Generally your local mechanic or ford dealership will have the scan tool required to remove the codes
i hope i have helped

Ford focus, 2000 zx3 code p0455


your engine code means "big leak" in the evap control system, this system has alot of pieces, but you are looking for a vacuum leak most probably, look at your vacuum hoses, and refer to the vacuum diagram stuck under your hood for routing, see if you have a bad hose, or disconnected hose some where. these are small vacuum hoses that attach to the purge valve, air filter housing, and charcoal cannister. let me know what you find.

I am trying to put the time belt on my ford focus 2001 zx3 and i cant seem to find the right time.


You need a shop manual to get the proper timing info. Basically, you are timing the camshaft with the crankshaft so the valves open & close at the proper time. If you are off, the engine will run poorly and you might even cause the valves to hit the pistons and cause severe engine damage.
