Hi, First post here. My wife and I just bought a 2004 Focus with the 2.0 spi. I Have read all through this thread and have not noticed anyone complaining of the valve seal dropping on an '04? I believe 2004 was the last year of the spi could ford maybe have installed updated heads in the 04 models? I am nervous about our Focus, It has 103k on it and it runs great but I cant afford a new engine if this time bomb blows. I might be going the route of buying a reworked head. I'm going to make some phone calls to my mechanic first.
