This is my 2001 Focus that has developed a rattle when you let off the throttle from high rpm's revving it or kicking it down on the highway. I checked all the pulleys, the internal area of the cat, heat shields,clamps etc and it's all tight enough that it's not coming from any of them.. I put my hand on the oil pan and it's a definite internal problem..It's losing power and gas mileage .Every once in a while it would shudder and just about die while driving down the road, then it would be fine for months... It's got 165k on it. No lights on except the ABS light due to improper wheel bearing install.It had a CEL light on but it was a cylinder 4 misfire. I really don't want to buy another car but I don't think this is worth repairing. I bought it three years ago for 2 grand so I think I got my money out of it and I know there are bigger cars that get better mileage out there..24 city and 32 highway..I towed my trailer with it once and it only got 21 highway...lol
2001 FORD FOCUS 2.0 SPI Rattle Part 2
Started it up at work today and it was smoking bad, so I knew toady really
wasn't gonna be good..lol I went to my buddy's house and punched the cat
out and took off all the shields that were hanging down. Noise is still
there, and is now getting worse. I believe it may be the dreaded SPI cam
issue, or the crank has issues.. I don't think the video shows it well but
the harmonic balancer is jumping a lot more then it has before. Just the
fact that it does it all the time now and has chewed up almost a 1/4 tank
of fuel in 20 miles tells me she's hurt.. 3 years on a 2 grand investment
Buying A Used Ford Focus: Warning
Warning to anyone thinking of buying a Ford Focus car. The single cam
split port 2.0 liter Ford Focus engine has a design defect in the valve
seats. They eventually come loose and drop into the cylinders and destroy
the engine. This is called a dropped valve seat. You can see what happened
to my piston in this video. If you are thinking of buying a Ford Focus, or
if you have one that's starting to run rough, your valve seats may be
starting to go bad. My car ran rough for a while before it finally died.
In this case it was possible to have the head rebuilt and install a new
piston and connecting rod, and the engine runs great now.

Ford Focus SPI Cylinder Head Replacement Part 1 of 4
Bought this non-running Focus cheap. These motors are notorious for the
valve seats separating from the head casting and causing havoc. This is the
first part of a series where I replace the cylinder head with an improved
version from HeadsOnly on eBay.
Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.

Changing Fuel Injectors 1999 Ford Escort
How to change the fuel injectors on a 1991-2000 Ford Escort with 2.0L
4-cylinder SOHC engine.
1999 model shown, replacing Bosch type injectors;
Bosch# 0 280 155 859
Engine code "P" (8th digit of VIN)
Found replacement injectors new on eBay April 2012 at $90 for a set of 4.
Spark plugs were showing that two cylinders were running lean. Idle was a
little rough. Power would fluctuate during moderate load/acceleration.
e.g. Freeway on-ramps.
After change, car idles more smoothly. Power is smooth and consistent at
MPG has not yet been tested for improvement. Even with the old injectors
the car would get mid 30's highway MPG.
430HP Ford Focus RS Wolf Racing - Acceleration with Backfiring Sound!
This time I have filmed a Wolf Racing Ford Focus RS 400 Stage 2 equipped
with Milltek Non resonated cat back Exhaust racing on a closed airfield against
other cars. Wolf Racing upgrades the 2.5 five-cylinder turbocharged engine up to 430HP and 580Nm!
Although the fact is that the RS is for a while on the market, it sounds
pretty good! Especially with an aftermarket Exhaust system like Milltek, Mongoose, Mountune
or Wolf Racing!
Modifications on this Ford Focus RS:
-WOLF Stainless steel Exhaust system
with 200 cells KAT
-WOLF / DREXXLER Sperdiff
-WOLF / H&R Coilovers
-WOLF hand brake
-WOLF Gear indicator
-WOLF 40mm Wheel spacers
-AS Torque arm ( road vote)
-AIRTEC Intercooler 400+

Engine: 2.5 five-cylinder turbocharged
Performance: 305HP & 440Nm of torque
0-100 km/h: 5.9 seconds

Valve seal Replacement
Leaking valve seals cause your engine to smoke when you first start it up,
and then it usually runs the rest of the day with no smoke. Usually
replacing the valve seals will fix the problem. Here's how to do it. Of
course other engines may vary to some degree but the basics are the same.
