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
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.
Ford Focus DIY Repair
Here is a very common problem on the Focus, and it's a fairly easy repair.
Here are the details.
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.
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.

Factory part is $61 and can be changed in less than 5 minutes without any
tools. Some DPF Sensors are a different shape and location, even though you
may have a 2001 Focus with the same specs. The other type is $61 from

New crash tests: Underride guards on most big rigs leave passenger vehicle
occupants at risk in certain crashes
Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger
vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of
surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show. But in crashes
involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to
prevent potentially deadly underride.
