2000 Ford Focus Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2000 Ford Focus

Warped front brake rotors may cause the steering wheel to shimmy when the brakes are applied. Our technicians tell us the brake rotors and pads should  be replaced to correct this concern.

In areas of high corrosion rear wheel bearings tend to fail. Ford agreed to replace these failed bearings at no cost. This program was to expire on December 31, 2002. Our technicians tell us it is unlikely Ford will replace any more of these failed bearings free of charge.

Plugs replaced still misfires and now engine light on continuously! Don't know what new code is but it runs the same, low power on acceleration and when the a/c running. New is speedometer jumps way up for a second sometimes on acceleration. Great mechanic work huh..didn't test it just se...

Engine light off but has been on twice over 6 months. Was going to get spark plugs and wires done today but I understand may also need coil, etc. I am floored when I see costs paid for these things around $200! I am broke but need a car...anything I can do myself to cut down prices?

Third replacement is brand new

Ford has recalled certain 2000-2005 Focus vehicles in states that use road salt because corrosion may build up at the pawl pivot area of the rear door latch. This may prevent the door from latching properly. If this occurs, an occupant could fall out of the vehicle. Dealers will install a lower rocker seal to the door to prevent corrosive material from entering and will evaluate the rear door latches, which will either be lubricated or replaced.

Ford has recalled certain 2000-2001 Focus vehicles because the filter in the fuel delivery module may be contaminated. This may cause reduced fuel pressure, which can lead to hesitation, loss of power, and surging. Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module.

Ford has recalled certain 2000-2001 Focus vehicles because the battery cable insulation may become damaged. This may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate and the vehicle may fail to start.
