TheGlassMaker I reused my spi starter with no issues. The pats system may not let the starter work properly.

FocusSwap Yes, I have the harness and an ECU. When I turn the keys the radio, blinkers, windshield wipers all work. The problem is I tried to jump the starter with a screw driver and it does not turn the motor over. The starter is good but it does not grab the flywheel. Do I need a different starter or do the keys have something to do with it?

TheGlassMaker You will need the ecu and harness from the engine you swapped in. Then you need to have the keys re-programed. If you don't reprogramed the keys only the fuel pump will come on that's it.

Swap Help

I purchased a Zetec from the junkyard with the list of misc parts. I have to reprogram the ECU because the Passlock from the car has 4 plugs and the computer and Passlock I grabbed with keys only has 2. I don't know if the motor runs or not so I have tried to jump the starter just to see if it turns over well but the starter does not grab the flywheel. I have tried the original starter for the SOHC as well as the one from the motor I pulled. Any thoughts why the starter does not turn the motor over? Do I have to have the ECU programed first? Any thoughts or advice would be great!

oo ok thanks for that info, i have another question, what can i salvage from my spi, so that i can use in the zetec swap?

farscaper Hey guys forgive me if this question was asked already...

I have a 2003 ford focus LX sedan with a 2.0L SPI, with a manual 5 speed transmission; I'm looking to swap to A 2.0 Zetec DOHC vin 3 in this car. Would my original manual transmission work on my proper swap, ?

Also , how can i identify my tranny?. Incase you guys need that information as well..

Royce01 I was thinking about doing that spi to zetec swap but im looking on here and its gonna be more expensive than i thought. best of luck! i think if im gonna pay that before having my upgrades installed. i'll just see what this performance shop of beach side would charge to built a complete race engine. at least if they build it they give it a warranty or so they claim. we shall see.

SPI Tuner I can understand where you are coming from but the junkyard values is less that kelly blue book. Mine at 91k is in $1700 to $2000 (Fair - Good). Deals and private sellers aren't going to sell a zetec focus for less than 3 to 5 grand (Fair - Good). I use to work at a dealership so this is how they price and buy cars and if they can't make money on it then they won't make an offer.

rockdiesel For the cost of the swap and time invested, research needed, waiting for the parts to arrive, lost sleep thinking about "what else did I forget", and down time.............Why not just buy a Focus with a Zetec ? Junk your old car and recoop some of the expense. I understand the whole "do it yourself" makes you feel good, but there comes a time when cost and reality come to terms. I'm OK with a rebuild but not a swap where the cost to buy ratio is 1:1
