The 97 Contour came with a 2.0L Zetech I4...what I came up with is look at your VIN on the Focus and if the 8th (eighth) digit is a 3 or a 5 it will fit in your '03 Focus, source: Edmunds

Can you explain the reasoning behind the 3 or the 5 numbe r

You know what sammijo, I can't. I got that information by Google-- each of your cars-- and sorting thru until the Edmunds (a reliable source in my opinion) site said that. It was not first-hand information, I was just tying to help as best I could
