Question about 2003 Ford Focus
Check where the noise is coming from.
If the noise is coming from the engine, then you may need to replace the timing belt. timing belt is replaced between 100K and 120K miles, depending on Focus model, or every ten years.
Here a bulletin.
If you have auto tranny, ensure that the grinding noise is not the typical shifting noise that you get when you engage a lower gear at the wrong time. If problem is coming from automatic transmission, then you usually need to replace the TPS (throttle position sensor).
