Getting a Free Focus!

Well it seems right now that I will be getting a free 2004 zx3 from a guy that my dad works with. The guy wants to get rid of it since he apparently blew the computer in it, and it will no longer start. All he wants for it is that I come pull it out of his garage that it has been sitting in for a year. Apparently he has so much money he just went out and bought a new car instead of getting the foci fixed.

From what I know of the car is that the engine itself is fine, as is the interior. IN fact it has racing seats and it's a 5 speed. with other goodeis that he had put on when he street raced with it. I am expecting it to be riced out when i get it because he said he had a spoiler on it and an exhaust can. So hear is my plan, my Fiance wants to buy a new car so I thought maybe I install all of my stock stuff that will fit from my 01 zx3(she hates how loud my car is ) go out to a junk yard and pull a computer from a wrecked foci and put it in the 04. That way she gets a free car and I get lots of goodies for my car!

are you sure thats whats wrong with it? does the engine spin over? do the plugs fire? im sure after a year of sitting it will need a good tune up and fluids changed. i bought a civic hatch one time for 200 bux from a guy. he claimed the engine was messed up and it wouldnt start. i took the car home and put all the plug wires on the right plugs and it fired up and ran like new. some moron put the plug wires on the wrong plugs and the engine wouldnt start. but you should take the car to a good mechanic shop and get it diagnosed. might be something easier to fix than a computer module. then again it could be something alot worse.

Well I havent seen the car yet, It would be awesome if it was something easy to fix, but even if we spent 2,000 getting it fixed it up it would still be an amazing steal since we are getting it for free.

Not sure which engine it has, part of me hopes it's the duratec because of the small performance advantage over the zetec but the other half hopes it's the zetec since I am familiar around it. I am assuming that the 04 zx3 was mostly zetec.

Base trim was Zetec only. Middle trim had the option to get a Duratec. Top trim came standard with the Duratec.
