Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Coolant leak I have a 2001 Focus (16v Zetec) and about every 2 weeks I need to add more coolant. I did have a hose leaking but it was replaced and I still have to add coolant. I have taken it to a local shop but they were unable to detect a leak. Prior to having the hose replaced I could see coolant on the ground but afterward I don't see any place where it's leaking but I continue to have to add coolant. Can you help?

Coolant leak in cabin - driver's side 2001 306 cabriolet - 2.0 16v


If you have a coolant leak in the car that is caused by a leak in the car's heating system - either the heater core or the associated hoses and connections.

Unfortunately to get at it is a PIA since it is behind the dashboard. A lazy fix is to stop coolant flow into the compartment and the leak will be gone along with the heat - bypass the heater hoses going to core .

Timing belt broke -2000 ford focus zx3 its 16v zetec engine Could you tell me if a 2000 Ford Focus has an non-interference engine or an interference engine. The timing belt broke and I'm wanting to...


I put your question into internet explorer & apparently
there are 2 engines in 2001 & 2001 that are interference

Seen the 2002 are the way to go if your buying one.

You can do a cylinder leak down test & there are some
nice cameras that go into small places that are for checking
things even inside your head thru the spark plug hole

Your not going to buy any of that,but can have those services
performed for piece of mind

A compression test is not really giving you the whole picture
that a cylinder leak down test would

My 2003 ford focus ZTS dohc 16v leaks water (not coolant)


There are only 2 ways water can appear that I know of.
(1) Naturally occurring from combustion while you warm up the engine. It lays in the exhaust until it evaporates with heat or makes its way out little bleed holes in the mufflers.
(2) Air conditioner condensation off the evaporator which is SUPPOSED to drop thru a drain hose to the street. The hose can get plugged and it could leak out higher up maybe.
Your air conditioner works even in cooler temps to dehumidify the windshield(in DEFROST or MIX modes). This resulting water is supposed to drain thru that hose off your heater plenum.

I have a 2001 subaru outback and appears to be leaking coolant from thermostat but not having loss of heat yet. Can gasket be replaced or do you have to replace whole thermostat? Also where can I find...


This sounds most likely to be a lower radiator hose leak (very common). It may be just as simple as tightening the hose clamp holding the hose to the radiator. If tightening the clamp does not work, replace the hose. When replacing the hose you must first drain all the coolant from the radiator and engine. Once its all drained, loosen the hose clamps on the hose thats leaking, pull the hose off and replace it with a new one. Tighten down the hose clamps and add coolant.
