    sorry for late reply. I forget to come back to the forum. The oxygen sensor screws in the exhaust pike just before muffler. I am not to techy, so i go to mechanics. Right now we are trying to source a new oxygen sensor for the Duratec R500

    Where is the air flow sensor or intake air temperature sensor?

    If the intake air temp sensor is mounted on the air cleaner backing plate without some sort of insulation, it will get hot and confuse the ECU with incorrect temp readings.

    Can you read the sensor temperature from the ECU / programming software?

    As it turned out I didn't.New plugs and adjusting throttle body cables and I was good to go. Still have idle problem at high temp. Thinking it's the air flow sensor. I changed muffler to free flow and it may affect sensor. We'll see next week.

    I am still curious as to why you need new coil on plugs, or is this an upgrade?

    Ron - If you need info on the spark plugs as well, it has been covered pretty well here: Question for the duratec owners thread.

    The on plug coils for the 2012 Focus Duratec are available from your local auto parts store.

    Question as why you might need them as they should last a long time.

    Note that the year the car was built may not be the year of the engine. You can probably tell from the serial number on the block.

    I think they changed the length of the plugs around 2009. Just be sure you replace them with the same length if you are not sure.

    Do you know what year your engine is?

    I do know they changed the length of the plugs at some point and you need to be sure you put the correct ones in.

    I assume you mean the coil on plugs? Or do you mean coil over springs for the shocks?

    Watch the events section.

    We should do something and a SuperCarSunday with a drive would be easy for some of us.

    I am happy to come out Randall's way as well.

    Doug
