#99 of 126 2003 FORD FOCUS ZX5 INTAKE RUNNER HOSE
Jul 28, 2011 (11:30 am)
we reolaced the intake manifold (plastic) aqnd were left holding a suction hose that we don't know where to connect? the dealer has no clue,and so do local mechanics. the engine light is on and it calls for the oxygen senser to be changed but we feel that the vacuum hose needs to be connected first.
anybody has an idea out there we would appreciate.

I have a 2005 Ford Focus zx4 and the engine starts to buck when holding a steady speed. It used to do it once in a while now all the time.

just a guess, sounds like a plug or plug wire breaking down.

I changed the plugs I was wondering about the coils on top of the plugs.

Yes, Do you know someone with a good code reader ? It will tell you which of the 4 coil packs is breaking down. You can find coil packs at NAPA, Advance Auto, On-Line, Auto-Zone. They are NOT cheap.

My 2001 ford focus was running rough and loud I raplaced the spark wire set yesterday and wat a difference smoothand quiet now.$20.00 fix. I got the car used, cleaned the engine at the car wash and later the car was running bad, the macanic said the coil was badand replaced it he said to replace the wires soon.I should have done sooner. try it
PS If you hose down engin at the car wash cover coil save $75.00
