In Topic: Mk1 Focus Hatchback Or 04~ Impreza ?

15 March 2013 - 08:26 PM

Car purchased :) Very happy ! Ended up buying one with 70k miles though :) 

 

It needs oil, front end tracking and filters though. 

 

Can I use any branded quality 10/40 oil for it and replace every 8-10k ? Or must it be that Motorcraft brand. 

Where I live - Summer is 30-40 Celcius and Winter 10-17. 

 

It's a 1.6 ZETEC focus...

Thanks !

Thanks for the quick replies ! I'm going to like this place :)

 

It's a 1.6 Petrol, GHIA trim Automatic (hate clutches and yes my testosterone levels are normal).

Cambelt was just done at ford. It's also serviced and MOTed.

Price is peanuts. 

 

 

 

Sounds good ?

 

 

By the way, is there a dipstick to check the ATF ? What should it look/smell like to see it's good to go ? Cherry smell and red color like my other cars ? 

 

 

edit: another small issue:

 

I have 5.25 Pair of speakers from my old car.. Can I fit them on the front of the focus with these ?

And, on the rears, and pre-made 5x7" will fit directly ? Such as these ?

Or, are the OEM ones better than those Alpines ?

OK guys, I found a really really clean 03 Focus Hatchback that looks and feels flawless.
There not a scratch on the paint and it was looked after at Fords.


BUT, it has done 105k miles.

The car is the cleanest i have seen though.
should that deter me in any way ? I would love to pick it up in the morning, thought id ask before if at that milage the ford engine is supposed to die.

Thanks !
