the 1.6 Ti-VCT is based on the Zetec-se engine which was developed by Yamaha. Where are you getting the Toyota link?

I've got the same engine but I hardly ever see less than 40 MPG. Having said that, my daily drive is 20 miles each way.

 

Have a look here for it's origins;

Suspect you might be confusing head gasket with cam belt?

 

Head gasket is not a scheduled replacement item.

Cam belt is and is 10 years or 100000 miles.

The lamps themselves do have some adjustment.

Look at the pic of the rear, bottom left the hex bit is the adjuster. It moves the lens inside the housing.

Don't modern Fords automatically turn on the heated rear window below a certain temperature?

Hi 

 

unfortunately i dont know know the make of alternator it was but i got it from a reputable auto electrical seller and he matched it to the old one from the car while i was standing in front of him and as far as i know they were the same make .would it cause a problem if it is a different make ?
