    Hey! I have 1999 1.6 DAW Hatchback. I've had some problems with the engine on and off where it's been losing power and stalling at lights and even sometimes when approaching roundabouts and slowing down fairly quickly. Had the engine and brake lights come on back and forth but also the airbag...
  2. DURATEC Performance (2008-2011)
    Hey guys, I'm looking to squeeze a few more mpgs out of my MK2 (beyond things like weight reduction) if it's financially worth it. And I discovered that the Duratec 20 in the Mk2 was modified and used as the base engine in the mk3. Ford added TI-VCT, and increased the compression ratio. I'm...

    I own a 2013 focus se. Last week my car decided not to turn on. I could turn the key over and over, all the lights/radio/ect worked but the engine would not turn over. My battery is still good showing 12.4v. Randomly it would work and turn on but mostly not. My dad then cleaned the battery...

  6. SVT Performance (2002-2004)
    Hello fellow Fanatics, So, it's been a while. Here is a quick rundown on my 02. I just rolled 135K on the car. A little bit ago, it was struggling to start, so I replaced the alternator, starter and battery, which, solved that. Then the car developed a misfire and I ended up replacing plugs...
  7. MK3 Focus
    Hi, new guy here. Bought a 2.0L 2014 SE with the 5 speed. Shortly after buying I was driving with the windows down and noticed a scraping sound coming from the passenger front.

    So ever since I installed my VF engineering Poly Mounts (Engine/passenger and Transmission/Driver) I've had an issue with engine misalignment.
