|tmoney12||Check your pcv hose behind the intake manifold for cracks or cave in at the elbow. My 2004 zetec se with 155000 miles had a smashed elbow and a 1.5" long slit in it causing a rough idle and check engine light. I would also recommend the gates timing belt kit. When I did my timing belt I also purchased a water pump and thermostat housing. Advance auto had it in stock with a lifetime warranty and you can find good coupon codes online. The last thing I would recommend is that timing belt special tools. They can be found on amazon for a little over $20 and that makes the job much easier. Good Luck.|

If it's a zetec
Gates TCK294B Kit from RockAuto
Don't forget the %5 discount code (search the site)
I got the water pump (bosch) locally at pepboys because it comes with lifetime warranty from them.
Don't forget the serpentine belt and get new pulleys (2) at the same time.

Rough Idle + Timing Belt question
So I'm about to do the timing belt on my wagon - 150k looks like its never been done. Any suggestions as to which kit is good, and where to get it from? i found a good kit on the Bay but it was for a SOHC. Id like to get a kit with a waterpump as well. Anyone have a good recommendation? Thanks.
Also, the car is idling rough, especially at a stop, and ESPECIALLY if i turn the fan on (ac or heat) - I'm thinking its motor mounts but any other suggestions. thanks
