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
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.

Time lapse of Engine Swap Ford Focus 2.0L DOHC Very cool time lapse video
This is a start to finish video of an engine swap in a 2001 Ford Focus in
time lapse. This video shows the entire process of changing an engine in
just 5 minutes. The Focus used in this video was still running great but
had 193,000 miles on it. That engine was replaced with a 15,000 mile
engine from a totaled 2003 Ford Focus. This process is much easier when
you have access to a life but can still be done by placing the car on jack
stands and lowering the engine out. Unfortunately most of the work of
switching out the transmission and accessory drive was done out of frame in
the middle of the video. The extra work at the end of the video was to
trouble shot why the new motor was idling at 3,000 rpm. That was cause by
a stuck idle air control valve from where the engine had been in storage
for so long.
The work was done by myself, Brian Woehler with help from my dad William
"Ray" Woehler at the Wabash Autobody headquarters.

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.
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.
