I have a manual, but bought a Zetec w/ auto tranny when I blew mine up. They didn't require anything extra from me in my swap. In fact, they gave me a lot of stuff back. I think you should be cool as long as you have the auto tranny in your car now. I'm saying this assuming that you blew the bottom end.

Also, just remember the basics. Spark plugs, oil, filter, ATF, anti-freeze. You'll need all that and maybe more.

Forgive me if this has already has been covered, but what were the circumstances causing the loss of the first engine?

the only thing that i would reccomend is that you make sure you get the same year engine as in your car. just did a engine swap in a car last week the kid bought a 2000 engine for his 98 car and some real small stupid things were different you may not have the same problem with a focus but it's better then finding out you can't hook up to half of you sensors. good luck
