Ok, we try one more time - WITH the Ford Cam Tool Kit.

The person I'm working with is convinced there is no further internal engine damage and thinks its just a timing issue.

Thanks for your advice and suggestions.

from the shop:

*check for unstable idle / scan pcm found lean fuel trims. checked for vacuum leak found faulty breather pipe and replaced
*scope ignition system for misfire / worn plugs & wires
*replaced plugs & wires

that's all.

the timing belt we replaced was done right :) saved some $ there.

all done. back in action.

Got a new Focus. Selling my old one - if anyone is interested.

Chicago Area / Northwest Indiana

only 240,000 miles.

runs like a champ. engine is fine:

new alternator
new battery
new timing belt
new drive belt
new plugs
new wires
new radio

*front end needs some work. needs an alignment. going to replace struts. suspension rides kinda rough. and there's a crack in the windshield. but overall - very well taken care off for the amount of miles on it.
