Question about 2007 Ford Focus (3 Door) Hatchback
I have a 2007 ford focus 2.0 , I have replaced the motor 3 time ,I bought them in a special junk yard ( they said the motor were good ) but when I install them it seem that the timing chain would go over and It bends the valves ( is this type of work different or why is it that the timing chain go over .
There is no way for a chain to slip and cause the damage that is happening.

The rear timing chain (or "cassette" as it's called in Ford lingo) is the chain that drives bank #1 (passenger side) cam. The front timing chain drives bank #2 (driver side) cam. There is a also a primary "jackshaft" chain that is driven by the crankshaft in order to enable both banks to be driven through a common shaft. The reason for this peculiar layout is because this engine is a "derivative" of the 4.0L OHV V6 engine it replaces. Ford simply installed a dummy shaft in place of where the camshaft used to reside on the original OHV engines. But above all else, the job you describe SHOULD NOT be carried out by anyone unfamiliar with this particular engine. There are NO timing marks on any of the drive sprockets, nor are they key to their corresponding shafts. To time this particular engine requires use of FIVE dedicated Ford/Rotunda tools that hold all relevant parts in proper position. Failing to carry this procedure out correctly, will result in the bending of ALL valves with 100% certainty!!! Therefore, it is best left to a Ford dealer technician to carry out. If you would like more information regarding diagrams, TSBs, and procedures with detailed illustrations, please e-mail me directly with your FULL Yahoo e-mail address so I can attach PDF files. Hope this helps.

you did not state which engine you have but if you are not real handy and/or have experience this is not one you should tackle as your first alternator because...
all will require that you either drop the rear of the subframe or rotate the engine forward to remove the alternator.
everything else is the same...remove the belt, unbolt and remove
about an hour job with experience and two hours if a first time
