Question about 2000 Ford Focus

1 Answer

My grand son has a 2000 ford focus. The carb has 4 vacume ports, but we can not find a small plastic part that goes into one position. It crumbled when touched and has a .2MM hole (we think) to allow air into the unit. Dealers around here are not helpful with this problem.

    part the crumbled was probably just a cap. Does it run ok? Does it run any different when you plug the hole with your finger? If it runs OK with your finger on it, buy a small vacuum cap.

    It runs. He has attempted to make a fix by using a small vacume hose and a plug with a small hole in it. He keeps adjusting the hole but right now it seems to be a touch too large. Origanlly, it was a piece of plastic with a small hole that was inserted into the vaccume point. It would be nice to know what this piece is. He has gone to ford and they seemed puzzled. The engine dies if the hole is too large. Trial and error has him at this point but the engine runs rough.

Recommend you just plug the port entirely. There is no reason for a port to vent thru a small hole. He can stick a golf tee into the hose he has on it. This will probably work until you can find a better answer. If the car is running rough, maybe there is another part missing that went to the part that crumbled. Check for a loose hose that might have connected there.

There's a way to install a magnet in the column at the ignition to allow the key to work. My son did it on a 2000 Ford Focus and it worked fine. I do not know the details but surely a search would turn it up? don-ohio (:^)

Where is the ac recharge port on my 2003 ford focus?


the low pressure port is behind the passenger fender plastic wheel liner.
Remove the screws and pull out the liner and it's right there. Please give highest rating if this is what you need.

    1. Detach the wheel arch trim panel on the passenger's side (driver's side shown).
    2. Remove six bolts.
    • Remove the trim panel.
