Hello.

I bought a used Ford Focus ZX3 from 2001 (Zetec-E? engine).
It was in at least 2 vehicle collisions before I bought it. It looks new though!

It is very close to 140k miles! I bought it a year ago in September, with ~110k miles on it.
I am about to add ~3k miles in a few days (road trip!).

Compression tested the cylinders today, and they seem OK.
185-185-185-175 (cold engine; 8 cranks)
195-210-210-200 (cold engine; ~25-35 cranks -- Cannot get any higher)

Fixing to change the oil here shortly. That was a dry-test only.
