No they just reprogram the keys. If everything is swaped over that is required to swap over the keys are the last thing needed done, the rest acts like it came with the car from the factory.

hi, you write this

They reprogram your original key. I also only had one they made a second for me. I believe it came out to $50-60 for the key and reprogram and it takes like 10-15mins.

I want know how make ?

I dunno how, I assume they use a key maker. They an just make a copy of a key. I don't know how they go about reprogramming it. The $50 to 60 dollars is the price they charged me to do the whole process. Which was to make a second key, and reprogram it for the car.

I own a 2003 Focus LX with manual transmission that a prior owner put a Zetec into - and from the paint marks on the engine, I think that engine came out of a wrecked 2000 Focus. The only way you can tell the swap was done is if you know the LX never came with a Zetec, or you plug into the engine computer and compare the VIN in the engine computer with the VIN on the dashboard.

It's a shame that Ford didn't put the Zetec into all of it's Focuses of those years.

What I Drive: 2001 Focus SOHC

Hi All, new to forum. I have joined the 2001 SHOC dropped valve seat club- # 3 intake. 150K mi -been idling wierd when warm for a year. I was the wife's car and nobody including Ford would say why it idled wierd. There is a lot of denial at my Ford dealer; but, they really worked at it to put us in a new one with iffy credit.

Is the Vin 3 2001 donor a suitable vehicle for the swap? After pulling the head and seeing the mess, piston head removed freely, rod bent and 1/8" or more cylinder gouge. Junk. Head looks rebuildable but why? Its quandry: buy a crate remanufactured SOHC and drive it till it drops. The car does'nt have a scratch or even a paint pit. I can wrench at middle skill level, have a degree in electronics and have swapped out big blocks in roomy places... This looks tiny and zero working space. I have fat fingers!

So if this is a suitable donor, what do you folks recommend? The wife bought a new one and this one is just sitting. Now its ok to wrench without potential castration ;-^) It has a year on the tags, a new battery and fuel pump. Inside is clean. What would you do that have swapped em or did a R&R? Thanks much. Jim
