Introduction

SVT HISTORY

The Ford Special Vehicle Team (SVT) was established in 1991 to “Polish the Ford Oval” by creating low-volume, factory-produced vehicles designed for those select few whose idea of driving is a high-powered, passionate experience — not just a means of getting from point A to point B.

In a move to support this spirited enthusiasm, Ford Motor Company carefully integrated the wide array of talent in the company into a small, cross-functional group of engineers and product planners, housed together under one roof with a common mission: to create vehicles specifically designed to meet the unique needs and desires of the knowledgeable driving enthusiast.

Nearly 150,000 SVT vehicles have been produced since the 1993 model year. These include the SVT Mustang Cobra and the Cobra R, the SVT F-150 Lightning, the SVT Contour, the SVT Focus, Ford GT, Shelby GT500, GT500KR and the F-150 SVT Raptor.

TEAM RS HISTORY

TeamRS traces it’s roots back nearly 60 years from the Lotus Ford Cortina and Twin Cam Escorts of the mid 1960’s, through the first RS branded Escorts of the 1970’s to the founding of Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) in 1980. Through the 1980s and 90s, SVE delivered a breadth of vehicles from exciting XR and RS branded road going performance cars through ’homologation specials’ such as the iconic Sierra Cosworth RS500. The first ST (Sport Technology) vehicle appeared in 1996 as the ST24 Mondeo. The first collaboration between Ford’s European and North American performance teams appeared in 2002 as the ST170 in Europe and SVT Focus in North America. In 2003, TeamRS replaced SVE in Europe as performance car and motorsport personnel were brought together as one team. TeamRS subsequently created the 2004 Fiesta ST, 2005 Focus ST and 2009 Focus RS.

GLOBAL PERFORMANCE VEHICLES

The Global Performance Vehicle (GPV) group was formally established in 2009, joining the performance product development excellence and heritage of SVT in North America and TeamRS in Europe. The Focus ST is the first vehicle to emerge from this group and represents the best of what Ford performance has to offer from around the globe. Your Focus ST has been designed and developed with the four hallmarks of the Ford Global Performance Group in mind: Performance, Substance, Exclusivity and Value. We are proud and passionate about what we do, and we’re glad you have made us your choice.

Introduction

BREAKING-IN YOUR VEHICLE

Your vehicle does not need an extensive break-in. Try not to drive continuously at the same speed for the first 1000 miles (1600 km) of new vehicle operation. Vary your speed frequently in order to give the moving parts a chance to break in.

Do not add friction modifier compounds or special break-in oils since these additives may prevent piston ring seating.

Driving Your Focus ST

MANUAL 6-SPEED TRANSMISSION OPERATION

image15

Using the Clutch

Note: During each shift, the clutch pedal must be fully pressed to the floor and the accelerator fully released. Failure to follow this may cause increased shift efforts, prematurely wear transmission components, or cause gear clash or damage to the transmission. Make sure the floor mat is properly positioned so it doesn’t interfere with the full extension of the clutch pedal.

Note: If you attempt to shift when the drive wheels are spinning with a loss of traction, it is possible to cause damage to the transmission. Do not attempt to shift when the drive wheels do not have traction.

Note: Do not drive with your foot resting on the clutch pedal or use the clutch pedal to hold your vehicle at a standstill while waiting on a hill. These actions will reduce the life of the clutch.

Your vehicle is equipped with a twin disc clutch. Due to the high performance of the powertrain, a certain amount of noise from the transmission is normal.

The manual transmission has a starter interlock that prevents cranking the engine unless the clutch pedal is fully pressed.

To start the vehicle:

1.Make sure the parking brake is fully set.
2.Press the clutch pedal to the floor, then put the transmission selector lever in position N.
3.Start the engine, then press the brake pedal and release the parking brake.

Operating at High Speeds

Your ST vehicle is capable of high speeds and is equipped with tires rated for the vehicle’s maximum speed. Remember to drive safely, obey all traffic laws and only operate your ST vehicle at high speeds at locations equipped and designed to do so safely. Before operating your vehicle at high speeds:

Verify correct tire pressures (see Tires in this supplement).
Inspect wheels and tires for wear and damage. Replace any damaged wheels or tires.
Do not operate your vehicle at high speeds with more than two passengers or while carrying cargo.

Driving Your Focus ST

ENHANCED TORQUE VECTORING CONTROL

Enhanced torque vectoring control (eTVC) is comprised of two elements:

Torque vectoring control which applies brake torque on the inner wheel in a curve for better traction and less understeer
Cornering understeer control which controls the yaw response of the vehicle under braking and acceleration on high and low friction surfaces.

Unlike ESC, eTVC control does not slow the vehicle but does help control excessive wheel slip and gives the vehicle cornering agility. The system only increases performance. Because of this, eTVC is not disabled when the AdvanceTrac® system is off.

ENGINE OVER-REV

Note: Always wait until the engine is properly warmed up before running high engine speeds.

Your vehicle is equipped with an over-rev feature to increase the performance range of your Focus ST. The standard maximum engine speed of 6500 rpm is indicated by a narrow redline on the tachometer face. The redline becomes thicker at the over-rev engine speed of 6800 rpm.

This feature allows three seconds of over-rev above 6500 rpm. Once the three second limit has been reached, the electronically controlled rev limit ramps down to 6500 rpm and holds there. Once engine speed has dropped below 6300 rpm, the over-rev timer is reset and three seconds of over-rev up to a maximum of 6800 rpm is enabled.

Do not operate the engine at high rpm and low load for sustained periods of time, as damage may occur.

OVERBOOST

The Focus ST offers a period of additional torque delivery referred to as overboost or overtorque. This feature of the engine calibration broadens the RPM range of the peak torque curve. This gives improved performance during maneuvers such as passing and vehicle launch. Note: The overboost feature controls a variety of engine parameters to deliver additional torque. Overboost is built into the engine calibration on the Focus ST and no action is required by the driver to engage.

Your ST vehicle is equipped with unique wheels matched to the tires. These wheels are more susceptible to damage due to their diameter, width and low profile tires. To avoid damage to your wheels:

Maintain proper tire pressure.
Exercise caution when using automated, commercial car washes. Hand washing or using touchless commercial car washes without mechanical tracks is the best way to avoid potential damage.
When installing wheels, always torque lug nuts to specification with a torque wrench.
Inspect your wheels for damage on a regular basis. If a wheel is damaged, replace it immediately.
In the event that you encounter an abnormally harsh impact, inspect the outer diameter of your wheels, both inside and out, for damage.

image17

WHEEL LUG NUT TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS

WARNING: When a wheel is installed, always remove any corrosion, dirt or foreign materials present on the mounting

surfaces of the wheel or the surface of the wheel hub, brake drum or brake disc that contacts the wheel. Make sure that any fasteners that attach the rotor to the hub are secured so they do not interfere with the mounting surfaces of the wheel. Installing wheels without correct metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel to come off while the vehicle is in motion, resulting in loss of control.

Your ST vehicle is equipped with low profile, high performance tires that are designed to optimize the driving dynamics you expect in a ST vehicle. These tires are not optimized for off-road or winter (snow or cold weather) performance, and their ride, noise and wear characteristics are different than non-performance tires. Also, because of their lower profile, the tires are more susceptible to damage due to potholes and rough roads. To make sure that your tires perform as intended, it is important that you maintain your tires properly:

Note: Do not use tire chains on the original wheels and tires of your vehicle. The use of any type of tire chain on these tires may damage your vehicle.
Do not overload your vehicle. Maximum vehicle and axle weights are listed on the tire information placard.
Extra caution should be taken when operating the vehicle near its maximum load, including assuring proper tire pressure and reducing speeds.
Extra caution should be taken when operating on rough roads to avoid impacts that could cause tire damage.
In the event that you encounter an abnormally harsh impact, inspect your tires for damage.

15

2013 Focus ST (stf)

.

Wheels and Tires

Inspect your tires for damage on a regular basis. If a tire is damaged, replace it immediately.
Proper suspension alignment is critical for maximum performance and optimal tire wear. If you notice uneven tire wear, have your alignment checked.
When replacing tires, the only way to maintain original performance is to use the original equipment tire. If a different summer tire is used, it should be the same size, speed rating and load rating as the originally equipped tire. Tires should be replaced as a set of four. Never mix tire brands or models.

TIRE PRESSURE

For tire pressures, see the placard located on the B-pillar inside the driver’s door.
Always maintain your tire pressures according to the tire information placard on the driver’s door jamb, using an accurate gauge.
Tire pressures are specified “cold” and should be checked after the vehicle has been parked for at least 3 hours. Do not reduce pressure of warm tires.
Check your tire pressure often to maintain it properly. Tire pressure can diminish over time and fluctuate with temperature.

WINTER DRIVING

The original equipment tires on your ST vehicle are designed for maximum performance in dry and wet summer conditions. They are not designed for winter use on ice or snow and cannot be used with snow chains. Ford does not recommend using the original equipment tires when temperatures drop to approximately 40°F (5°C) or below (depending on tire wear and environmental conditions) or in snow/ice conditions. If you will be operating your vehicle in these conditions, winter or all-season tires must be used.

Even with clear, dry driving conditions do not operate your vehicle above posted speed limits or perform high speed maneuvers with winter tires.
Do not use tire chains on the original wheels and tires of your vehicle. The use of any type of tire chain on these tires may damage your vehicle.

Wheels and Tires

The following table lists acceptable tire sizes for winter tires. Tire speed and load ratings should match those of the originally equipped tires as closely as possible. If it is required to fit winter tires with a speed rating less than the original equipment tires (to fit snow chains, for example), be aware of the maximum speed rating for the tire and never exceed.

Please call the Ford Performance Info Center at 1-800-FORD-SVT (367-3788) for specific winter tire recommendations.

FULL SIZE SPARE

Your Focus ST is equipped with a full size, dissimilar spare tire assembly. Although the spare is a traditional, full size tire (as opposed to a mini spare), it is different in both size and handling characteristics from the standard Focus ST performance tire. Should you need to install the spare tire, the following precautions must be adhered to:

Because of the different performance characteristics of the spare tire, avoid aggressive steering, braking, acceleration or high speeds when the spare tire is installed.
Never enable ESC Sport mode or fully disable ESC when the spare tire is installed
Replace the spare tire with the correct original equipment specified tire as soon as possible

7. Put the dipstick back in and make sure it is fully seated.

ENGINE COOLANT

The concentration and level of engine coolant should be checked at the mileage intervals listed in the scheduled maintenance information.

Note: Make sure that the level is between the MIN and MAX marks on the engine coolant reservoirs.

Note: For best results, coolant concentration should be tested with a refractometer such as Rotunda tool 300-ROB75240E available from your dealer. Ford does not recommend the use of hydrometers or coolant test strips for measuring coolant concentrations.

Note: Coolant expands when it is hot. The level may extend beyond the MAX mark. If the level is at the MIN mark, add coolant immediately.

Be sure to read and understand Precautions in your Owner’s Manual. If the coolant has not been checked at the recommended interval, the engine or intercooler coolant reservoir may become low or empty. If the reservoir is low or empty, add coolant to the reservoir. Refer to Adding coolant in this chapter.

Note: Automotive fluids are not interchangeable; do not use engine coolant/antifreeze or windshield washer fluid outside of its specified function and vehicle location. For more information about engine coolant, see the Maintenance chapter of the Owner’s Manual.

Capacities and Specifications

Adding Engine Coolant

image23

WARNING: Do not add coolant when the engine is hot. Steam and scalding liquids released from a hot cooling system can burn you

badly. Also, you can be burned if you spill coolant on hot engine parts.

image24

WARNING: Do not put coolant in the windshield washer fluid container. If sprayed on the windshield, coolant could make it

difficult to see through the windshield.

image25

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, make sure the engine is cool before unscrewing the coolant pressure relief cap.

The cooling system is under pressure; steam and hot liquid can come out forcefully when the cap is loosened slightly.

image26

WARNING: Do not add coolant further than the MAX mark.

Note: Do not use stop leak pellets, cooling system sealants, or additives as they can cause damage to the engine cooling or heating systems. This damage would not be covered under your vehicle’s warranty.

Note: During normal vehicle operation, the engine coolant may change color from orange to pink or light red. As long as the engine coolant is clear and uncontaminated, this color change does not indicate the engine coolant has degraded nor does it require the engine coolant to be drained, the system to be flushed, or the engine coolant to be replaced.

DO NOT MIX different colors or types of coolant in your vehicle. Make sure the correct coolant is used. Mixing of engine coolants may harm your engine’s cooling system. The use of an improper coolant may harm engine and cooling system components and may void the warranty.

A large amount of water without engine coolant may be added, in case of emergency, to reach a vehicle service location. In this instance, the cooling system must be drained, chemically cleaned with Motorcraft® Premium Cooling System Flush, and refilled with prediluted coolant as soon as possible. Water alone (without engine coolant) can cause engine damage from corrosion, overheating or freezing.

Note: Do not use alcohol, methanol or brine or any engine coolants mixed with alcohol or methanol antifreeze (coolant). Alcohol and other liquids can cause engine damage from overheating or freezing.

Capacities and Specifications

Note: Do not add extra inhibitors or additives to the coolant. These can be harmful and compromise the corrosion protection of the engine coolant.

Unscrew the cap slowly. Any pressure will escape as you unscrew the cap.

Add prediluted engine coolant meeting the Ford specification. See Capacities and Specifications for more information. Whenever coolant has been added, the coolant level in the coolant reservoir should be checked the next few times you drive the vehicle. If necessary, add enough prediluted coolant to bring the coolant level to the proper level and concentration.

Coolant Refill Procedure

The following procedure should be used when refilling the cooling system after it has been drained or become extremely low.

1.Remove the pressure relief cap from the coolant reservoir as previously outlined.
2.Slowly add prediluted coolant to the coolant reservoir until the coolant level is between the MIN and MAX marks on the reservoir.
3.Reinstall the pressure relief cap.
4.Start and idle the engine until the upper radiator hose is warm (this indicates that the thermostat is open and coolant is flowing through the entire system).
5.Shut the engine off and let it cool.
6.Remove the pressure relief cap from the coolant reservoir as previously outlined.
7.Add prediluted coolant to the coolant reservoir until the coolant level is between the MIN and MAX marks on the reservoir.
8.Reinstall the pressure relief cap.
9.Check the coolant level in the reservoir before you drive your vehicle the next few times (with the engine cool).
10.If necessary, add prediluted coolant to the coolant reservoir until the coolant level is between the MIN and MAX marks on the reservoir.

Whenever coolant has been added, the coolant level in the coolant reservoir should be checked the next few times you drive the vehicle. If necessary, add prediluted coolant to bring the coolant to the proper level.

If you have to add more than 1.0 quart (1.0 liter) of coolant per month, have your dealer check the cooling system. Your cooling system may have a leak. Operating an engine with a low level of coolant can result in engine overheating and possible engine damage.

1Use only Motorcraft® DOT 4 LV High Performance Brake Fluid or equivalent meeting WSS-M6C65-A2 and ISO 4925 Class 6. Use of any fluid other than the recommended fluid may cause brake system damage.

2Use of synthetic or synthetic blend motor oil is not mandatory. Engine oil need only meet the requirements of Ford specification WSS-M2C946-A, SAE 5W-30 and display the API Certification Mark. Your engine has been designed to be used with Ford engine oil, which gives a fuel economy benefit while maintaining the durability of your engine. Using oils other than the one specified can result in longer engine cranking periods, reduced engine performance, reduced fuel economy and increased emission levels.

Warranty Coverage

WARRANTY COVERAGE

The Focus ST carries the same warranty as other Ford Focus models.

This information is covered in its entirety in the warranty information.

Warranty service for the Focus ST or any ST vehicle can be obtained at any Ford dealer nationwide.

Ford Global Performance does not recommend modifying or racing ST, SVT or RS vehicles, as they are designed and built to be driven as delivered from the factory. The warranty information discusses vehicle usage and the installation of aftermarket parts and their effect on warranty coverage.

In the event the vehicle is intended for track use, and the loss of warranty coverage is not of concern, the following vehicle durability actions are required:

Perform multi-point inspection and the maintenance outlined in the 150,000 mile (240,000 kilometer) normal maintenance schedule of the scheduled maintenance before and after track use. Refer to the vehicle service manual for removal and installation procedures.
Replace with Genuine Ford and Motorcraft® service parts as needed.

These actions may not necessarily protect your vehicle from damage in competition conditions. Subjecting your vehicle to competition conditions even with this recommended action may render repairs non-reimbursable under the warranty.
