  1. Focus ST Performance
    I’m moving down from Massachusetts to North Carolina this fall for college. The heat has me a bit concerned and I figured an oil cooler might be a good mod to keep the ST running nice. I haven’t seen many people discuss how effective they are though, anyone have any experience or numbers to...
  2. Focus ST Maintenance
    Hey guys, noticed something concerning the other day. After driving around for 20 minutes or so and getting the car up to temp, I was sitting in a drive thru and noticed smoke coming out of the tailpipe. I got out to look at it and couldn’t really tell if it was blueish or white. I then shut the...
  3. Focus ST Maintenance
    Was driving my 2015 st from school and the engine light came on and my temp gauge went all the way up and my engine seemed to be cutting out. Stopped and turned my car off. Waited about 5 minutes and started it again and the temp gauge was at operating temps. Wasn't cutting out. So I drove it...

    So i’ve noticed on my oil temp gauge that it sits at the 1/4 line until i start doing some aggressive driving then it rises to the mid line. If I don’t do any aggressive driving and I drive for 15-20 minutes it’s still at the 1/4th. Any ideas on what could cause this?

    Does anyone know if the oil pressure sender is upstream of the filter or downstream. I installed the larger FL-400S oil filter vs. the OEM FL-910S based on Mountune recommendation. Now the oil pressure is higher and want to verify if it's because of more flow or less flow through the filter...

    Hi! Just got a new to me '13 Focus ST and the the oil guys accidentally put 6 litres (6.34 qt) of Castrol in it. I did around 120 miles before discovering the error. I sucked 0.6 litre of oil back. I'm pretty horrified as I just got the car, the overall mileage is just 30K miles. The test...
