    Hey just wanted to get a little bit of a side opinion from the community on a couple things. I recently bought a 2013 Focus ST @ 127800 km. I drove it for about 5000km and has a sweeter smell coming from my exhaust and a small amount of white smoke during cold start. I proceeded to bring it in...

    So today while I was on my lunch break at work, I noticed a few slight pops coming from my car, then CEL came on and this is what I got. Never had an issue before, everything was fine on my way to work. I’m stumped. Spark plugs have less than 20000 on them, don’t have to tools at home to pull...

    So recently my ST would humm going from 0- 30mph and would get worse as i accelerated from 50 an on and it would vibrate a lot and gets louder. I thought it was my wheel balance or rims so i got all new tires and konigs with the hub spacers and a fresh balance. The Issue is still there. I...

    Hi guys, I couldn’t find a discussion on turbo cleaning so I thought I should start one. For information I’m at 50k miles and this is my first turbocharged car I owned. I’ve had people tell me to take out the turbo and clean it at 80-90k. Is this correct and if so is it something I could do...

    Hello, I bought my 2015 Focus ST about a year ago at around 74,827 miles. The car came with a Cobb cold air intake and a chopped exhaust as far as i know. This led me at the time to believe that this was someones first "fun" car or first car which means it could have either been beat on or...

    Hey guys, I’m looking to do a coolant flush this weekend on the ST and I checked the supplement to find the exact coolant but I can’t seem to find it anywhere, even on fords website. I’m starting to think the product code may have changed. I ended up buying this from my local dealership, would...

    My little darling just ticked over 80k miles and I'm pretty happy with how little has gone wrong in the time I've owned it. All I've replaced because of failures has been a rear sway bar end link which happened at about 65k (good excuse to buy some performance replacements) and a rear wheel...

    Hello everyone! I recently turned over from the dark side (jdm) and I'm loving it. I want to get a long life out of my st so I want to protect my engine and undercarriage from rust and general wear that could cause parts to go bad. What should I use to clean/protect the metals and where should i...

    Going to try and make this short. So being blind (not really) I hit a pretty tall curb turning into a gas station in my 2018 ST. instantly car started shaking and wouldn’t drive straight, so I freaked out and just stopped at a gas pump. Jacked my car up on my front driver side and saw what...

    Mods: cold air intake, exhaust, bov and no tune Hey guys my st has been having a issue where it is throwing code p0299, the boost won’t go past the half way mark on the boost gauge and the car feels like a slug. When I get on the car hard it’ll get to the halfway point on the boost gauge and...

    I just bought a 2017 Ford Focus ST today. I live in Michigan and Winter months are coming. So I’m trying to find out what people are doing with their STs in these months. I was thinking about finding some Focus SE wheels for my car. But since the Wheel disk and Calipers are some much bigger on...
