If your original engine didn't have a knock sensor, but the new one does, don't worry about it. You can safely remove it or just ignore it.

There is 2 differnt engines .only reason i know this is my wife had one with the larger engine bore but called a zetec also .even the brakes are differnt on the models . i think you might have to talk to a ford mechanic for this one.

    This is true, there are 2 different engines. I assumed Wayne Thomas was doing a swap with the same engine type. I have changed many engines, and sometimes different emmissions packages have different equipment even though they are the same engine. If it is a different type of engine, then there will be much bigger problems than just the knock sensor.

SOURCE: thermostat replacement 2003 ford focus se, with 2.0, 16 valve ztech engine

Follow the upper radiator hose to where it attaches to a housing (2bolts hold the housing in place) remove the hose clamp here and then remove the housing bolts, inside the housing is your thermostat. Clean off the surface of the housing, and where it attaches to the engine. Install the thermostat, and a new gasket (or O -ring ), carefully replace the housing, being sure the thermostat doesn't slip out of position, tighten the housing bolts, reattach the radiator hose to the housing, add coolant to proper level, check for leaks, u r good to go! Make sure the thermostat is installed in the right direction, if put in backwards the car will overheat. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Focus timing belt replacement.

This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.

SOURCE: how to change the spark plugs on a 1.6 zetec ford

get a plug spanner (more a socket than a spanner) and after removing the plug lead, use the spanner to remove the plug. Do one at a time so you dont get the leads mixed up or it will not start.

My 1.6 ford focus zetec is taking too long to start either cold oo warm. (2007)


Any number of thing's could cause this condition , Weak fuel pump , low fuel volume , an engine sensor , mass air flow for one , A crank sensor that is going bad , cam sensor etc... your best bet would be to have it diagnosed professionally , rather then guessing an just replacing parts

I have a 2003 ford focus that I have a pinging engine sound during acceleration or going uphill. The car also hesitates while driving at a steady speed on a flat road. It will also just stop (maybe 5-10...


Hello, Thomas. Check the knock sensor. This sensor is suppose to send signal to the computer if the engine start to knocking or pinging. The computer will change the setting on various other components to keep from doing this knocking or pinging. I remember in the older cars that weren't fuel injected but carbureted and had to burn high octane fuel. If one put low octane in the fuel tank the engine would knock/ping, and continue to run after the ignition was turned off. Try the knock sensor or do an diagnosis test on it. Look in your owner manual it tell how to self diagnosis test on you car. GB....stewbison

Is a ford focus non zetec interchangable with a zetec motor


If you mean can you drop in a replacement zetec engine then yes. As far as parts, yes it is as well. The differences mostly pertaining to the ECU and electrical sensors.
