Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Hi everyone having some problems with my 1.4 focus on a 51 plate the problem is that the tempgauge rises into the red which causes the warning light to come on and then the ecu puts the engine into safe mode which stops me from driving the car ,this happened a fortnight ago resulting in me being towed to the garage ,they diagnosed the engine temp sender was at fault and replaced it ,all was going fine until today when the same thing happened anyone had this problem with their focus . the car has only done 41500 miles. could the instrument cluster cause any of these problems
I doubt its the instrument cluster. Next time it does it, turn the heaters on full hot. If the air is very hot, you could be looking at a thermostat problem. If the air is cold, then you are either losing water or your waterpump is on its way out. However waterpumps dont tend to be sporradic, so i would go for water leaking.
