The oil recommended for the 2001 Ford Focus is the Motorcraft SAE 5W-20, WSS-M2C153-H, or an equivalent. If you are going to use any other brand, always make sure that it is certified for gasoline engines by the American Petroleum Institue (API). This designation is on the container. And, always, make sure you are purchasing the correct weight of 5W-20. Ford does not recommend any additives.Make sure you get an equally good quality oil filter, too.

my guess
oil changer
spilt the oil filling the motor up and it ran on to the exhaust
if rocker cover gasket isnt leaking
oil smell will go away after engine gets up to temp

degreased the engine bay with something cheap
then hosed it down with a hose and water went everywhere

firing order for 4 cyl typical is 1342
the leads will be to length from dissy so its hard to mess up

water may have condensed under the dissy cap or coil plug wires arcing in the spark plug tubes

all needs to be dried out

a dry rag or metho not wd 40

car should run ok after the engine bay is dry
