2001 FORD FOCUS SE 2.0 SPI ENGINE RATTLE

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

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.





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 aint bad..





9 year old's reaction to first drive in Ford Focus RS MK2
As I explain in the video, I recently bought a Ford Focus RS MK2 in Ultimate Green. My little brother (9 years old) is a massive petrolhead, and I kept the new car as a secret from him, this was his reaction from the first time we went out...





Pressed wheel bearing replacement (without a press...)
The bearing is 24 years old and has 155 000 kms. It was quite easy thanks to a "special" trick. No press used : ) and the only annoying task was to remove the outer race with a hammer and a chisel.

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.





How to Change a Wheel Bearing (short and fast version)
Wheel bearing replacement, How to change a pressed bearing in a Ford, specifically a 95 Ford Windstar, but this method will be similar for all pressed bearing vehicles. The main steps are to take off the spindle nut, tire, brake caliper, and rotor. Then remove the bolts from the lower control arm ball joint, tie rod, and strut. Remove the steering knuckle, then press out the bearing and hub/spindle. Then press in your new bearing and hub/spindle. This job is a little more complex but can still be easily done by any amateur mechanic. You will save $400-800 depending on your vehicle. **If the video helped, please give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing.

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.
