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 was...you 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. https://www.google.com/search?num=10....1.Gp0CtY_4Hhc

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

Hmmm, I see the heat shield which is suppose to protect the hose, but the part that goes bad is the elbow on the left, which is not protected by the heat shield... sooooo Is this really an improved version? (And yes, I know this post is very old...)

Hey, when that's all they make what'rre you gonna do??? If me you make up the whole thing out of conventional bulk hose so at least when it fails again you can replace it at 1/4 the normal cost. I no longer use the steel tube in the middle, rather custom bent/cut steel brake line and short adapter pieces of hose on the ends.
