Exactly the same problem.
2000-2003 Focus vehicles may exhibit a noise from the right halfshaft support bearing.
Due to the way the driveshaft is designed there is central bearing on the the shaft. On the front drivers side it has the tendency to hum at speeds over 40mph. This is the first sign that is the bearing is going. According to Ford it can be quite common in cars of 50-60k plus. If you don't notice the hum (I didn't really) you will eventually start to get a ticking/crackling noise at speed, which will gradually get worse and take less travel time to get going. Eventually the bearing will just seize, so it is worth getting it sorted.
Unfortunately even private mechanics will have to source the bearing, which isn't cheap, so it will cost around 125-150 quid at the garage to fix. It can be a pretty fiddly job, as the whole driveshaft needs to come out (not easy in high mileage cars due to build up of grime etc), so I wouldn't attempt to replace at home unless experienced.

If the engines are the same they will fit, the splitport and the zetec use different trans.

This sounds like a fuel problem.
Some one may have have filled up with petrol. If so you will have to drain the feul tank and change your feul filter.
If only diesel has been put into the tank then carry on as follows until you solve the problem.
Change your fuel filter and air cleaner for a start.
Check your timing.
If you still have the problem, then have your injectors cleaned and reset.
If the problem is still there then you will have to have the fuel pump reconditioned.
You can also check your leak off pipes between the injectors to see if they are in good condition.
I trust this will help you.

One of the air intake pipes had come loose. Fastened the jubilee clip back up and it was like having a new car!

change the fuel filter. and clean the mass air flow sensor usein a can of carb cleaner from any parts shop. depending on the miles on your car the timing belt mit have jumped a tooth. have to change it every 120.000 km.
