Question about 2003 Ford Focus

2 Answers

My 2003 Ford Focus Zetec engine, I think either the clutch is going out or maybe just needs fluid. It doesn't want to really go anymore, slow to get up to speed. How and where would I check the fluid on it?

My 04 2.3 is doing the same thing. I drove it today had to turn the ac off just to get home. once you get going it runs fined just a dead spot when taking off in first gear. I am thinking that the throttle position switch could have a dead spot in it.

If you were low on clutch fluid the clutch would not disengage, it would not cause the car to be slow, but it would be difficult or impossible for you to change gears. If you feel the clutch slipping while driving, either the clutch disk and/or pressure plate are worn, or possibly have oil in then from a leaking engine or transmission seal.

Are ford zetec engines more problematic than the LX engines


I have owned both personally, and I really liked both engines. The Zetec definitely has the power to do anything you want, and the LX was very reliable. I actually had a Green Focus LX Sedan, and that got me 186k miles on the same clutch no less before I traded it in, still no issues at trade in time......The Zetec was a hatchback, but I still got 140k on that before I bought a Silverado.....Great motors in my opinion.

How to replace clutch on 2003 Ford Focus 1.6 zetec


It's not difficult if you have the tools, space, knowledge, and most of all money and time. Not to mention a second car. I took two days for mine and one was because they (store) gave me the wrong throw out bearing. Yes replacing the clutch is only part of the problem. Once you drop the engine a little and maneuver the tranny out of the way from the tight spaces and separate it from the motor mounts to bring it down, you have it gutted out that any sensible person will change the engine's freeze plugs and put new bearing grease to the shaft, buy new bearing and then the new clutch..don't forget the alignment tool to make sure it's properly aligned or else you will wear it down or may not shift smoothly again. Yeah, this is a job alright. Better have your wits for this. I have sometimes told my brother when it deals with these kind of dilemmas, choose your battles. Weigh your options. I did it but I have all the equations in my favor and yet I ran into snags and some scuffed elbows and knuckles. Plus had to yell and swear a little at times. Tough situation, Sorry, I don't sugar coat it. It's tough but do able. Gabe

Crankcase capacity for 2003 ford focus 2.0 liter split port engine


Hi,

To my knowledge, a 2003 Ford Focus 2.0 SPi engine would need 4 quarts of engine oil (roughly 3.78 liters). Incidentally, the Ford/Cosworth Zeta/Zetec engine would be needing 4.25 quarts (~4 liters).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
