This one I hope also gets to 200k, just happens to be one where Ford utilized the $450 "LifeTime" airfilter I can't replace my own self, yikes. Love the hatch!
If it's the "lifetime" filter that would be PZEV. Meaning you have a Duratec!

Hoping to get it to 200k.

Saved it from the local KIA Dealer. They didn't know what they had.

So much information cross-pollinates between the two vehicles, which is logical since the Focus is the "child" of the Escort platform. I guess Dr. Frankenstein would be proud of me.
Until went w/ my '05 ZX5, was diehard Escort driver. I think you could start seeing if any bulletins had been missed on your VIN#, esp any concerning O2 sensors and also injectors. I had the escort series prior to your as 1st one, then skipped over to the late 90's SE. The O2 sensors' in those were hyper sensitive, tolerance too tight, until corrected in '98's & later. Hey, Escorts led me to Focus!
