SOURCE: engine blowing oil from oil filler cap

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

SOURCE: 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.

Testimonial: "Found the leak on the purge control valve. The hard plastic vacum line had holes worn in it from vibration. Thanks"

Need to know what kind of oil used in 2002 ford focus.


Harold, According to the 2002 Ford Focus Owner manual,
With engine oil filter change : 2.0 liter SPI engine takes ( 3.78 liters / 4.0 U.S. quarts of 5W-20 )
2.0 liter Zetec engine takes ( 4.25 liters / 4.5 U.S. quarts of 5W-20 )
links below talk more about what they think oil should be used.

Can I use 50/50 engine oil in my W reg Ford Focus


You should only use the oil recommended for your vehicle as shown in the manual - and sometimes printed on the oil filler cap of the engine. Thinner oils (lower numbers) are usually used in cold weather and thicker oils (higher numbers) in hot weather.

My escort zx2 died while doing 60. It will turn over but wont start and makes a grinding noise while turning over. Any ideas? Also is the zetec engine an interference or non?


HI Firstly, the zetec engine IS an interference engine unfortunately.
One way to check if cambelt has gone is undo the oil filler cap and have a friend crank the enginewhile u look down the filler hole if you do not see a camshaft moving ( rotating ) the cambelt
has gone.
I hope i have been of some help with this problem hope it dos`nt cost to much to fix

You may lose a little, nothing major. Add in the transmission filler tube, where the dipstick goes.

Ford ka engin oil


You really need an inspection pit as the car needs to be level. Unscrew filler cap from front face of gearbox ( carefull though as there is a blanking cap as well and it is the one furthest from engine) The oil level should be between 5mm and 10mm below bottom edge of filler plug)
