Ford Focus 2003 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Ford Focus 2003 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ford Focus 2003: Power loss

    It sounds very much like fuel vaporization, which suggests the fuel is getting too hot at some point in the system. If you could get someone to fit a fuel pressure gauge to the car you could monitor the pressure and it if's fuel vaporization as I suspect you should see the pressure drop away when the problem occurs. The source of the problem could be in the fuel tank itself, the lines between the tank and the engine, or in the engine bay. Look for any location where the fuel system comes close to a heat source, such as the exhaust system.

  • Ford Focus clutch issues

    I'm not sure what you would complain about, unless you're concerned that the dealer might not have changed the oil at the service, or hadn't refilled it after draining it, but if that were the case the engine would have stopped a long time ago. If it has been running without oil, or with too little oil, it would cause severe internal damage, and do it very quickly, but if that was the case you should had warning that the oil level was too low. What you should do is have it checked. Engines lose oil through burning in the engine or by leakage, and you need to find out which it is in your case.

  • Ask Smithy Xtra Fix water in Ford Focus fuel

    You say the car is now running well, so it would seem that by draining the fuel tank and replacing the filter the mechanic fixed the problem. You can connect the charcoal canister, it’s there to collect the fuel vapour from the tank so it’s no released into the atmosphere; the accumulated vapour is then burnt in the engine, so it’s safe to reconnect it.
