    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Oil filter housing is a 36mm socket size.
    Not sure about the spark plugs as i have a diesel.
    The oil filter and oil change is very simple to do. Although some people have had problems with the sump plug as its made from very soft metal. You just need to be careful not to chew the plug up.
