Service Parts - 2007 Mk2 1.6 Zetec Engine

03 August 2013 - 02:23 PM



Looking for service parts for my new Ford Focus MK2 1.6 Zetec [100]. 


Can anyone tell me what shape filter is required for my engine as it appears there are two types?




Also can anyone recommend or advise which spark plugs are best/recommended and are they pre-gapped or do they require adjustment?




Thanks for your help! :)

Ford Focus Mk2 - Strange Idle Problem

02 August 2013 - 06:21 PM

Hi All,


New member to the forum and new Ford Focus owner as of this evening!


I've just taking ownership of a Ford Focus MK2 (2007 Registration) 1.6 Zetec in Black. 


This car was an exchange by the dealer (Evans Halshaw) as my last car, purchased only three weeks ago, developed an engine fault so the Focus was taken as an alternative. 


Anyway, I am quite happy with the car aside from one thing. I noticed tonight that when the car is idle that it feels quite rough, the rev limiter does not generally move from 800rpm however you can feel the engine physically 'shaking' for a few seconds then it stops then it does it again.


Does anyone have any ideas what this might be so I can decide on what to do next? 


If it is something as simple as plugs or injectors then I might pop in some new plugs or run through some Redex or BG44K. 


If it is something that is more serious or requires further investigation then I will be going back to the dealer.


Appreciate any input! :)
