2002 Ford focus engine trouble

Asked by Jan 29, 2016 at 04:24 PM about the 2002 Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I live in michigan and I have a 2002 Ford focus with  
a 2L spilt port engine which recently took a shit. I
blew the cylinder head and the head gasket. The
car has had a lot of work already put into it and the
engine had about 160,000 miles on it. What I want
to know is should I invest money into a refurbished  
motor or just fix the parts of the engine? Also im
working with 1,500$ and know this car so buying a
different car is out of the question. Finally, how
would I tell exactly what type of motor I have? I
called a couple shops and they are telling me there
are 13 different types of engines for an 02 Ford
focus. Thank you

I guess if you are sticking with that car I would refurbish the engine if you know how to do it. If the head is needing any repair like freshening up the valves, then you would pull oil up threw the piston rings with that many miles on it, making it a oil burner. As far as what size engine, you may try calling a dealer with the vin. number, I believe then they could tell you. I am up in the U.P. 23* right now.
