Ford Focus 2002 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Focus 2002 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Can I use a 2001 Ford Focus motor in my 2002 Ford Focus?
The Ford Focus wasn’t released into Australia until late 2002, so it’s very unlikely you have a 2001 model unless it’s been privately imported. At which point, all bets are off in this regard as different markets had different models which may or may not be swappable.
But if the two cars are the same model of Focus and aren’t either side of an upgrade, facelift or model change AND provided they used the same engine from the factory (1.8 litre or 2.0 litre) then you should be able to repower one with the other’s engine. The problems would start if one was a 1.8 and the other a 2.0 when you might find that wiring looms, computer software, sensors and even engine mounts might differ from each other, making the swap much harder than it should be. Don’t forget to inform your insurance company and your local registration authorities of the change of engine number.Show more
Would a 2004 Ford Focus sedan windshield fit in 2002 Ford Focus hatchback?
That’s a very interesting question and one that my instinct suggested would be a yes. That’s because the Focus from those two model-years was based on the same platform and that the differences between the sedan and hatchback variants were all from the A-pillar back. And so it is. I checked with a major windscreen replacement network and, yes, the two vehicles have a windscreen with exactly the same part number. So you should be good to go.Show more
Vibrating steering wheel on Focus
While the crash might have seemed minor the damage could have been more substantial than you think, that they changed the timing belt would seem to suggest there was some significant damage to the car and that's where I would start investigating. I would suggest you contact an experienced assessor like Graeme Cuthbert on 0422 444 335 and have them inspect the car and the repairs.Show more
Timing so critical
SOME carmakers stipulate a belt change at 90,000km, but it isn't unusual for the recommended interval to be 150,000km. Ford's service schedule is 150,000km or 10 years, whichever comes first. I see no reason not to follow that.Show more
