New To the Focus World!

Hey Guys!

I recently purchased a 2004 Focus SVT and decided to join the forum! I've only had it for a day but unfortunately some minor mechanical problems have made themselves apparent. Here's the list:

- P1518 CEL code (IMRC weirdness?)
- TOB noisy
- Worn motor mounts

Cosmetically, everything looks pretty good except a few scrapes here and there and some clear coat that needs redoing.

Here it is

Looking forward to meeting yall!

<3 Cory (I've been told to write "I'm not gay, I'm just a girl.")

I've been there as a passenger, but I've never run it myself. I'm hoping once I get better at downshifting I'll give it a go. Hopefully I'll see you at one of the Austin meet ups!

Nice SVT! Welcome to the forum and try to make it out to the meets some time. (Oh and thanks for putting "I'm not gay, I'm just a girl", otherwise I would have thought you were gay. LOL)

If everything goes according to plan, I sure will be!


Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! Hopefully I'll be seeing a few of at the Austin meet up sometime soon. Jason I'm going to bother you to come with me .

Yes...it looks like I'm the typical damsel in distress with my big strong boyfriend riding in on his white horse to fix my car...*yuck* This car seems to be more his than mine haha "Can I drive it, can I drive it, can I drive it?!"

All joking aside, he's doing me a really big favor by helping me out so if you guys have any advice for us don't hesitate to pass it along :D

Thanks again for the welcome!

<3 Cory
