Coils rarely ever go bad, what does go bad are the boots and the springs inside. These in bad weather areas will corrode or boots tear so save your money on the coils and just replace the plugs and boots
From seeing pics I am suprised how far 'IN' the plugs actually are from the top of the engine.
Right off I can see the plug socket getting stuck on the plug (Most spark plug sockets do not have a very strong 'click' to the typical ball bearing lock in the typical extension... and thus maybe the socket being a PITA to get out of the hole. (just thinking ahead) And using antisieze ... hell yes. And the plug getting stuck after years of sitting down in there is one good reason to change them before 100,000 miles.
I saw a 'cutaway' photo which may or may not be of the MK3 Focus 2.0 engine. (tough bird to single out using Google, and Ford is zero help)
With two pistons/ valvetrain exposed. On one the plug was turned so the ground was directly in the way twixt plug and the injector.. (that would be a goot candidate for an indexed plug. LOL)
That engine cutaway had the plugs coming in at an angle, and the injector straight up. From the pics of changing the plugs on a real MK3, the plugs sem to be straight down. (Which may be an illusion) so I am not certain if the cutaway is the real MK3, 2.0 engine? or not. [rant]
So today when I went to check my oil and other fluids I noticed something bizarre. Down behind the air box there was a plastic tube connected to a vacuum line type hose that was just sitting around out of place. After looking around I found a hole on top of the DCT where the tube would appear to...
Just want to share my camping mod for the MK3.
Before I just folded the rear seats and then sleep there but it was difficult because you had to move all the gears on the forwarded front seats every time you wanted to sleep.
This is balance between sleeping and storage space.
Hello FF members!
It's been a two year hiatus since I've posted here. I've been busy with other projects.
But anyway, I have time now to work on things that I don't like about the MK3.
I've been successfully sniffing the CANbus either HS,MS,I bus. The later one I could read my multimedia...
