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.
