I recently purchased a 2008 Focus SES and it has a rough idle. If you all noticed most of the intake parts are plastic....ya! So I started looking at the connections and found one of them appeared to be secure but it was actually cracked and loose. Fortunately it had a male type plug so I wrapped tape around the outside and inserted it back into the manifold and wrapped wire around it to hold it in place....It idles Great!. I couldn't believe how easy that all might want to check for cracked fittings!

Hope this helps out a lot of people.
Is there a crank case ventilation on a 2.0 Zetec DOHC? And if there is one, where is it?

Yes. It's called a PCV hose. Do not ask for a crankcase ventilation hose. You'll get the wrong one. I went through a hassle with rockauto because they had it listed in the wrong category and I got stiffed with the wrong one. You want this.

It's the newer version. It's mounted under the plastic intake manifold on the back of a Zetec. They wear out and collapse, or just split altogether. Do a search and you'll see plenty of pics.

Have you read the entire thread? Because it sounds like you have checked everything but the possible vacuum leaks the thread is about.
