There is a temperature gauge on the st170! i have the exact same prob my engine warning light has been goin on and off for some time now and everytime i get it to a garage they either cant diagnose the fault or the light goes out!
but the oil temperature in my car also cools very quickly im not sure its anything to worry about its when it goes the other way you should start worrying!!

My ford focus st170 is leak foamed water under the carpets passengers sides only and boot passenger side only


air conditioner/heater compressor's or evap canister is leaking on the floor. It is very common with the focus. After time that water begins to stink! Try silicone to seal the leaky component which would be above the floor mat.

My focus st170 oil temp gauge is on the red what is causing this


Hi mate.

This could be caused by low oil level.

If this is not the case and you have the correct amount of oil, then I would suspect the sender unit ( maybe the wire has come off) or the oil pump has given out and needs replacing.

Until you sort this problem do not use the vehicle as you may damage the engine through lack of lubrication.

Warning light focus st170


Pretty much. The temperature is low enough that if your engine is not properly prepared for the cold you could experience engine issues. i.e. Frozen radiator, tube failures and other issues like low viscosity oil which would create lubrication issues and premature pump failure. Best to ensure that your car is wheater ready for the cold. DRRXR :)
