Engine Ford Duratec HE 2.0 with 145 hp by its construction is the same as 1.8 liter, but with cylinders with a larger diameter (83 mm to 87.5 mm). It was developed by Japanese company Mazda MZR series model LF, which used Ford in the framework of cooperation between the two companies. Comparing it with the 1.8 liter, the 2.0 on all sides of it seems less preferable. The 1.8 is more elastic, more powerful, quieter running, without flaws floating speed. According to the plant, the resource of the Duratec engine Ford / Mazda LSB 2.0 is 217 480 miles, but its natural lifespan is 310 500 miles without a significant overhaul.
There are also timing chain drives, which significantly improve the reliability. However, all engines have a problem with the fragility of camshaft seals. Often, the thermostat breaks before 60 thous. miles and the engine is not heated or overheats. You also need to monitor the state of the spark wells, in the case of oil, it is necessary to tighten the valve cover or replace the gasket. If, after 3000 rev/min machine refuses to go and there is a Check Engine problem, then it’s time to replace the intake manifold flaps control valve. In addition, every 100-150 miles, you need to adjust the valve clearances because of the lack of lash on Duratec HE 2.0.
By the way, there is no lash on the engines of Ford Focus 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 2.0 at all. Despite all these little things, 2 liters is a perfect motor, reliable, and considered one of the best engines among Ford Duratec. In 2010 the motor was replaced by his restyling version Duratec HE GDI Ti-VCT, with variable valve timing, 150 hp.
