Doobie Minchkin, thanks I was told by some kid....stupid me lol but thank you. And yes not a big fan of a ton of neg camber on FWD cars...

Mark WB, yea, this morning it was like 45* out, and I sat in the driveway for about 5 mins, took it out the back way (with the speed bumps out through a shopping center and then to the main road), so it took bout another 4 or 5 mins, and it had JUST got over the "C" mark.

Misfire, yea that's what I was told as well about the brake lights. Idk what it could be with her car. And thank you for the bumper and grill info. PS car looked good man!

Thanks guys!

Also, where the hell do i get euro bumpers, parts, etc?? going for this look for her car...minus the ricey ass roof rack.
3rd brake light should come on first followed by regular stop lamps at the same time.


The bumpers and black grill were on the SE coupe at one point and the SES sedans.


Here was my 2010 SES sedan I traded in.

That's different, I feel that this engine comes very quickly up to temperature compared to some other vehicles I've had.

Minchkin I do belive that that is the Coupe bumper. There was no euro version of this car. (Well, there was, but the look nothing like ours.) And that looks like a drop also. Not a fan of the rear camber, but to each his own.

Miller88 I thought the 08-11s had variable valve timing?

Just googled ... apparently they don't.

It does take off at 3500

That's the tumble flaps in the intake manifold opening up.

Lol. I am just saying, our little foci aren't sports cars. They aren't meant to really go that fast. And AFAIK, the valve timing on the original duratec motors don't have variable timing, and the '13 ST is the only Focus with Ecoboost.

I would check to see if there are any pending DTCs. If the trans is having an issue, there is bound to be a code somewhere.
