When To Have Head Gasket Changed On Focus??

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Am new to this site so please be gentle with me. I have a 04 plated Focus 1.6 zetec that has done 95000 miles. I have recently had the rocker cover gasket done and was wandering about replacing the head gasket.

I know very little about the mechanics of the car and am hoping one of you could advise if you feel this needs doing sooner rather than later. Also, a rough sort of price would be great.

No need to do unless its leaking, blown.etc, and its not a case of kissing engine goodbye.

On most modern engines its rare for headgasket to fail.

hi,,, lift the lid and check for oil on the under tray, also if your car is on a drive always look for oil spots as you reverse off the drive,,, but as mentioned,, if it aint broke then dont touch it.

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.
