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 .

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

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.

Water in passenger footwell of ford mondeo zetec 2001.


I had the same problem. Take note of black plastic trim piece that runs along the bottom of the windshield. On the passenger side there is a pan type attachment to this piece of trim; it can become detached from the trim. In this case it needs to be positioned under the lower lip of the windshield.

You can also use silicone sealant which is much better.

Good Luck !
