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.
Probley your best bet is too replace that head.. I have gottin 3 from a guy in clearwater on ebay and have had great outcome out all of them.. you can see where they make a lip over the vavle seats to hold it in better.. i got little over 1k so far so good.. good luck
