Question about 2003 Ford Focus
When you checked the spark plugs was any of them burnt up really bad, if so, then it was probably a loose spark plug and might've ruined your injector that was associated with the sparkplug. I had my sparkplugs replaced by a mechanic, he didn't tighten the first one and when I noticed the clicking, that sparkplug was so loose, I unscrewed it be hand. Replaced it, cleaned injectors out and now runs good.

I am having the same problem. I don't want to go to the dealer because they will charge me way too much just to look at it. I also have a 2003 ford focus se 2.3 pzev. Clicking sounds happen in first gear only.

The thermostat is the most likely problem and also the easiest/cheapest to replace. You could also start by checking the fuse for the electric engine fan, if it is good you could try to disconnect the fan and run 12v ( + and -) to it directly from the battery. It should turn on.

if you are intending diy the cambelt +tensioner then the info that you have read/been told ? is correct as to different milageand times however! you are obviousely aware of consequence of c/belt or tensioner failure ? so best advice is use the lower milage/time for replacement 100 k or 8yrs which ever comes first ? remember these periods are only guides so if in any doubt ? change it as a kit for peace of mind easy job to diy if you have diagram/instructions manual hope this helps /inspires you ?

SOURCE: I changed out spark plug
Knock at low rpm and high rpm" It may be oil pump , After oil heats up it gets thinner and and less lubracated. I would change the oil and add some oil stabalizer, shouls help, if not probaly a rod.
