My valve cover is warped and is leaking out of one of the corners. I checked with ford about a replacement. I have a 96 with a metal cover. They only find one number but dont know if its just going to be a plastic focus zetec cover. Does anyone know a part number for a metal zetec cover? Thanks a ton!

I would like to know something similar. Does anyone have a Ford part number for a wire cover for VCT engines? Like the one on the cover of the Hayne's manual, except it's a Mystique. Unfortunately, I have the VCT wires sticking out of my valve cover, so I'm limited to nothing when it comes to wire covers.

Oh yeah, and to answer your question, no I don't know the part number. Sorry

I have a wire cover I took off a ZX2 but you will need the valve cover too to fit it. Mine doesn't even have screws for it. Need to find a ZX2 valve cover now.

How did you warp it?!?! My gasket died on my car. When it went out, it managed to fill cyl #1's spark plug tube with oil. It misfired like nothing else, didn't throw a CEL though. Weird.

A new gasket from FelPro is like $20. Changing it can be done in almost no time. Make sure to torque the cover down or it will leak, again.

IIRC its a two stage torque process...the first is 7 Nm then 2 Nm. As per the Ford CD-rom for 98. It might be different for other years.

IIRC, the spec for mine (according to my chiltons) is 7-9Nm. It doesn't say anything about a two step process though.
