brianphelan1968 2004 ZX3 2.3 auto all stock, no mods... 184,000 (aggressive) miles and is running strong. I try to stay on top of the small stuff and fix things when they need it. But still, I call it 'the little red racer' because I drive it like I'm on a circuit when just commuting to work and back. I cannnot drive it slow and middle aged even though I myself am slowing down and aging haha! I just love my focus and plan to keep it for another 100,000 miles, and driving it the way i have been for the last 180k! And thanks to all of you for your posts and input that I've come to rely on to help me keep this on the road. Your advise and 'know how' make this forum my go to guide for EVERYTHING relating to our cars... (mama drives an 08 mazda 3) Stay Focused... stay in the race!

09vistabluecoupe Currently sitting at 135,7XX miles/220k ish KM. Still using every factory bulb and even still using the factory brake pads, I do a fair amount of highway driving.

sailor Zetec is not, but occasionally a high RPM failure can bend a valve anyways.

The SVT version of the zetec IS an interference setup, that's why it's more critical on that type.

See you got your answer on prev. maint., yes many do the pump at the same time since it's in the area & serpentine is coming off anyways.

In a Focus group Damn! I could kick myself for not asking the seller!
Is the Zetec an interference engine?

Found the number for the PO. She had not changed the belt. Might as well do the water pump too!

sailor Well overdue if it wasn't changed, 10 yr./100k works better on older zetecs (SVT's often by 80k, as failure there causes damage for sure)

In a Focus group Just bought an '03 with just over 140k miles. Been doing the maintenance to get a baseline - fluids and filters. One thing I forgot to ask is if/when the timing belt was changed. Need to do it soon I guess. The schedule says to replace it at 120k.
