Dropped valve seat on a 2001 ford focus SOHC


Dropped valve seat on a 2001 ford focus SOHC, My uncle is very lucky with this 2001 ford focus SOHC. He woke up last week to go pay a bill and the car started to shake and make a bad noise, he knew it was not normal so he shut it off immediatly and called me to look at it. I started by checking the timing belt thinking it jumped a tooth, and the spark plugs to see what they looked like. the 2nd cylinder from the passenger side had some damage showing so I did research online to see if others had this same issue. I took the valve cover off next and i noticed the intake rocker arm was very loose which led me to belive something was keeping the valve from coming back all the way to put tension on the rocker arm, in this vid you can see the valve seat is blocking the valve from closing and the seat is still intact and has not fallen apart to cause further damage in the cylinder. I took it to the machine shop today and the guys were VERY surprised to see a dropped valve seat from this particular model motor did not cause worse damage. So the reason I am posting this is to let Ford focus owners with this model car know that there still may be hope for this car if you catch it in time. common sense if something strange happens to any car and it just is not acting right DONT DRIVE IT! the reason why this car is still savable is becasue my uncle turned off the car and told me to solve the problem. No need to subscribe I am not a big uploader on vids but I hope this helps anyone who is having issues.
