Question about 2003 Ford Focus

2 Answers

Hi! I have a 2003 Ford Focus se 2.0 with a little over 100k miles. A few weeks ago, it started having a "clicking" sound. I can't seem to tell exactly where it's coming from. I have tried changing the spark plugs & and wires, timing belt, over flow tank and the water pump. The sound increases when the RPMs are higher. Does anybody have any answers? Thanks.

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.

SOURCE: Car all of a sudden started overheating. Already

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.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy XL with 150,000+ miles and an automatic transmission. Starting this week, the engin began to rev very high as it transitioned from 1st to 2nd gear. it's very sluggish. Once I get it...


Sure sounds like a slipping transmission to me. When is the last time you changed the transmission fluid? Before you go dumping $2,600 for a new transmission, I'd do a transmission fluid change first. If you do change the fluid, use Dextron 6, it's GM's new transmission fluid, much better than the fluid you have now. Not to scare you, but my transmission went out at about 100k miles, so you're doing good if it hasn't been rebuilt yet.

I have a 2003 ford focus SE. I am having problems


In my opinion it sounds like a problem from inside the fuel tank but don't quote me on this. With multiple sensors and switches related to fuel movement throughout the vehicle you're truly better off having a professional deal with this, unfortunately it will cost a few dollars.
