Instructions how to change timing chain on 2006 Ford fusion

Do not see you doing that yourself

Be easier to drop the motor out the bottom,
or remove the fender, to even get to the front
of the motor,very,very expensive job, based on
labor time

Go to You Tube Video & look at a similar
motor taken apart or timing chain reinstall

You most likely have worn chain guides or
failed Cam Actuators (VVT)

You have not stated what if any problem has been actually
diagnosed & how it was done!

Ford focus oil on the threads of spark plugs

Well, "Catalytic Converter Below Threshold" is not going to be inexpensive to fix no matter HOW you do it. Catalytic Converters are EXPENSIVE - PERIOD. This is why I get frustrated with people that do not mainain their vehicles properly and do stuff like ignoring check engine lights until they are forced to get an emissions inspection. Then there are others that go out and buy those cheap little generic code readers just so they can keep turning the light off without performing the repairs necessary to actually FIX the problem. Or they wait to change their oil when the low oil pressure warning light comes on...happens all the time... then they always get upset when you give them an estimate for the repairs.

If your spark plugs are getting oil fouled, it could be several different things ranging anywhere from piston rings, to valve seals, to something as simple as a malfunctioning PCV system. That must be properly diagnosed.

However, you are not going to repair the catalyst without spending some big bucks to replace it. You can go ahead and replace it with one of those cheap, undersized, aftermarket replacements if you really think that will save you any money, but you will just be doing it again in probably less than a year and you will not have saved anything.

Sorry, NOBODY wants an expensive bill, but in many cases, it simply cannot be avoided. When it comes to catalytic converters, CHEAPER is NOT BETTER!

2002 Ford Escape XLT OD light blinking - am told it may be a torque converter cellunoid - only has 80K on it & I bought it new! Any ideas? How expensive is the fix? Would it help to change the...

The Trans fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles or two years.
Changing any fluid on a vehicle is never a fix for anything,just preventative maintenance.
You should have done the Power Steering Fluid, Trans Fluid,Brake Fluid,Etc a couple of times,before getting to 80K.

Also I would hope you changed the spark plugs buy at least 60K.

You may have a TCC Solenoid going bad,but the engages the torque converter clutch.

Is it shifting into OD? Most likely you have a solenoid issue,but need to find out which one. Most fords have a solenoid pack in the trans,with all of them in one unit. Not sure on yours.

The only way it will be expensive, is if you go to a dealer or get pitched some story by a shop, not able to diagnose, what is most likely a simple fix.

!998 ford excort. stalled and restarted drove it about 200 yds and shut it off now it wont start at all

spray some brake cleaner in to the throttle. If it starts you will need to have the fuel system diagnosed. Most likely a failed fuel pump.
If it still does not start then you will need the ignition system diagnosed. There are about 4 expensive parts in the ignition system that could be the culprit so havin a shop diagnose this would be in your best interest.

1999 ford escort wont start not firing no spark.

Check Engine Light on? It could be the "crankshaft position sensor" or the "camshaft position sensor", maybe the coilpack but, if it's the coil pack you should still have spark on two cylinders.

How easy is it to replace a noisy clutch thrust bearing. 53 plate Ford Focus 1.6 petrol zetec.

The thrust bearing is normally a part of a new clutch kit.Comprises pressure plate, clutch plate and thrust bearing.You will need to remove the gear box to change the bearing.The bearing basically slides onto the gearbox shaft. Recommend changing all three rather than just the beaing.You may want to get quotes from garages as dealers are expensive.
