Question about 2000 Ford Focus

200 Ford Focus 1.6, temperature gauge at full, even on ignition

I have a 2000 Ford Focus 1.6ghia. The temperature gauge is always on the red, so the engine management system thinks the car is over heating and cuts the engine. I've had the cooling sensor replaced and the car worked fine for about 6 weeks. Now it is doing it again. Coolent levels are fine. Any ideas of what I can suggest to the garage when I take it there?

Cheers,

Mark

    The gauge is on the red as soon as the gauge gets power, before the engine has even started.

Ford focus 2003 temperature gauge jumps to red


Check the operation of your thermostat.
Check that the radiator is filled with fluid and that there are no bubbles in the system (this should only be as a result of a radiator re-fill).
Check that the radiator fan comes on as the gauge needle moves over half way and into the red.

Need to know where the cylinder head temperature sensor is on a 2000 ford focus with a 2.0 zetec engine


It should be on the driver's side of the head in the heater hose or tube, there should be two of them, one for the computer and one for the temperature gauge. Good luck.

Car cutting out


Check the exhaust compression. Remove the O2 sensors before the cataylic converts and see if it improves. If it does that means your cats are cloged and need to be replaced.

Dies when the car heats up


Check for blockage in the radiator. Flushing the cooling system will not fix a partially plugged radiator. Replace radiator with new to repair problem.
