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: ticking ford focus

You need to be certain that the intake manifold is completely free of parts/remnants of the "old" valve seat that shattered. If you do not clean and blow out the intake manifold with compressed air before installing in on the new head, chunks of the old seat can and likely will find their way back into the combustion chamber.

Does this car have an interference motor?


ford escort/ focus engine 2.0 l spi sohc 1997-2004 has been identified as an intereference engine and that means very likely valve to piston damage
( auto data timing belt information )
note-- up to 2002 year Ford has not recommended a timing belt interval for changing
Ford has however recommended a replacement every 120.000 miles using the service history as a guide
however good professional trade practice recommends every 60.000 miles ( 100.00klms) and the replacement work should include replacement of the crank and cam shaft seals and idler pulleys involved ( the biggest destroyer of belts is oil)
recommended labor time is 2 hours
if the belt has broken then head removal and valve work will add up to 5 hours to that time

How reliable is the Ford Focus?


Depends on the year and trim. I like the older single overhead camshaft 2.0l SPI models. They have engine code "P".
Zetec DOHC "3" are powerful, but may drop a valve seat as it ages. I haven't heard much about the 2.3l duratecs, but I suppose that's a good thing. I have heard reports of the new ecoboost motors having trouble, but I bet that's because of people putting regular 87 gas into a turbocharged engine. Turbos need high octane. At anyrate; keep it tuned, change the oil, and keep it under 90. Follow the owner's manual instructions, and you will have no trouble with a Focus or Escort.

Why is focus is suddenly running rough. pingy sounds like timing is advanced 2001 2.0?


With out actually hearing it or knowing what engine is in it it hard to be 100% sure but, it depends on if its the 2.0 spi or the 2.0 ztec dual overhead cam, if its the spi, that particular engine is known for dropping the valve seats out of the head, the seats are the sealing steel sealing ring that the valve closes against during different strokes of the engine. its an aluminum head and a steel seat, they will expand and contract at different rates, if the seat doesnt have enough interference when pressed in it can fall out and damage the head, valve and piston, when the seat comes loose you will have a misfire and a noise coming from the engine, now.... that being said it could be a timing belt that has partially slipped... this is a real tough call without seeing and or hearing the car, what codes does it have?, whats the fuel pressure etc.... This is one you should have a qualified tech look at... sorry.

Crankcase capacity for 2003 ford focus 2.0 liter split port engine


Hi,

To my knowledge, a 2003 Ford Focus 2.0 SPi engine would need 4 quarts of engine oil (roughly 3.78 liters). Incidentally, the Ford/Cosworth Zeta/Zetec engine would be needing 4.25 quarts (~4 liters).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
