|puffingonj||Any turbo guys had the autolite a103s plugs separate?? I can take the porcelain and spin it in the steel. Replaced with new set 3 days later same thing. Since then I put the ar103s and I have yet to pull a plug and check them. Just wondering|

Correct, this is the Duratec Performance '08-'11 section for MkII owners.
Try the MkIII sections, your engine type is Duratec TiVCT.
Welcome to FF, you should find a lot of info. once you get into the MkIII sections & general areas that fit all models.

Guys, this thread is a bit old, I have a 2013 Focus SE, Autolite A103 apparently do not fit on this year.
Stock plugs are Motorcraft SP-535
what is the deal with these Foci and this dead spot lag when at full stop and gassing it, i hate it, it sucks.

|ellmarshptbo||well I changed my spark plugs today in my new to me 06' Focus. I used Autolite 104 coppers. I did not know the mileage of the plugs, but the previous owner had put Bosch platinum's in her! they didnt look too bad, electrode was worn. I guess on the bright side they were not factory at 200XXX KM's ;) I was greeted with better start up, better accel espcially in 1st gear and a smoother idle. Thanks everyone!|

|PSUrivie||When you change your plugs, use either anti-seize or go old skool and use a dab of oil on the threads of the plugs to they don't corrode in the head.|

I'm really late to this, but Music if you're looking for an 08-11 shop manual, I uploaded mine and was giving it out to members.

In late 2012, Haynes updated the Focus to include all years from 2000-2011.
You can buy this at pretty much any automotive store, also the internet.

So.. I didn't get to change the plugs or do anything else to my car yet as I pulled something in my back Saturday morning by just coughing. :(
Do I need to use Dielectric grease as well?
Not sure if I am getting confused with my 2002 Toyota Tacoma that I also plan on changing the plugs, wires (including Ignition Coil on Plug Boots). I don't remember ever having the plugs changed...
I am a complete noob when it actually comes to doing anything mechanical on the car (I know.. it's obvious ;) )
I have yet to find a repair manual for the 2008 Focus... guess I might be able to refer to the one I have from my wife's old 2003 Focus for some things?
I was hoping www.alldatadiy.com would have more info around these things, but not so much.
