it depends on your engine; in european focuses, engines 1.4 and 1.6 gasoline have timing belt; the 2.0 gasoline is on chain; the 1.6 and 2.0 diesels have timing belt, while the 1.8 diesel has both a belt and a chain

The US 2.0 Duratec has a chain not a valve bending snapping belt

    Just bought a 2004 Ford Focus SE Wagon and two mechanics told me it's a timing chain and not a belt. Does the timing cover have to be taken off to find out what it is ?
