Do not attempt this yourself but take it to ford garage as special tools are required ,the bottom pulley bolt holds the gearwheel on by pressure and when you try to slacken bolt if crank isnt locked right the gearwheel stays still and the crank turns and you end up with 5 valves bent and hole in piston ,trust me on this ,got the teashirt for this

SOURCE: timing belt broke -2000 ford focus zx3

Hello mawbea: My name is Roger I will answer your question. You did not say which engine is in your car. So if you have a 2.0 SOHC engine. If the belt broke you should be Ok. If you have the 2.0 DOHC engine. The likely hood of bending the valves are just about a guarantee. How ever with any engine using a timing belt it is possible to bend a valve.Should you need more help please just ask.
Please rate the quality of your answer as this way we know you received helpful information.Thank You for using Fix Ya, Roger

SOURCE: changing water pump 2000 ford focus

Changing a water pump is pretty basic. Since the coolant system is a closed system you only need to be concerned with that system. For instance you since you have to mess around with it anyway you might as well change the thermostat and flush the coolant system. Make sure your radiator hoses are in good shape and that's about it.
If you have basic mechanical skills and tools you will have no problem replacing a water pump.


As far as information with the actual replacement there are a number of experts here including myself that could explain how to do it.
However no matter how good our explanations are it just can't compare to a good repair manual.
A repair manual for your car at Auto Zone would likely cost between $12 and $15. It is a great investment if you are going to keep your car for any length of time. When you sell, it shows the buyer you took the time to maintain and repair it right.
I personally like Haynes Manuals.
I hope this helps.

At what mileage should I change the Timing Belt for 2007 1.6 Vtec Ford Focus?


In theory 100,000 miles / 160,000kms.

Having said that, I have never heard of anyone suffering inconvenience, breakdown or large unscheduled expenses by changing the belt early. When you do it , dont cheapskate it. Do the tensioners , they are the cause of many of the problems anyway, by siezing and frying the belt.
