Picked up a 01 SE last week, had 108k miles, valve seat issue, this one ran for about 30 seconds after it started "knocking", took it apart to find where the piston split also caused the block to crack in the bore, had to get another block, sucks cause out of 6 cars I have rebuilt this is the first (and hopefully last) one I have had to completly remove the engine and replace it.

110k now.. wonder if it'll still drop with the DPFE/EGR bypassed and new temp sensor. I wouldn't mind buying a Pruis right now so it probably never will. Wouldn't mind another Focus fine car all around too bad don't have the hybrid option.

The EGR causing a valve seat drop is a myth in my book, the routing of the egr tube goes into the center of the manifold so all cyl's get a taste of its own exhaust, it just looks like its only going into #4 cyl. Also not having a EGR set up is costing you 2-3 MPG.

Funny after disabling the EGR MPG went up 2-3 on average. Have you cut open a manifold to verify that?

Picked mine up last year used with 113,000. Still running good with minor problems. I had to replace the power steering and the serpentine belt, but those weren't huge problems. Mostly error on the previous driver's part. It now has about 123,000.
