Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer


Can anybody help, I have just filled up my washer bottle and there is a very small leak in it somewhere as there is now a small puddle on the floor. Is there a simple way of fixing this or do I have to replace the bottle?

Any advice is much appreciated

    hi first thing to check ? is washer jets working? if so then eliminates hose to pump fault if you have suffered ice conditions? may be the bottle/reservoir has cracked due to freeze? especially if w/screen wash antifreeze not used ? other than this you will have to look at bottom of res or remove ? then check ? hope this helps

Hi my 1999 Ford escort when it goes back to idle

sounds like a vacuume leak, take some soapy water in a spray bottle and spray the hoses slowly, when the motor levels out you found your leak, being 11 yrs old, i would change all the hoses anyway, they are overdue

How do you get windscreen washer out off a ford escort botlee has a crack in it.

pull and twist the pump out of the bottle, it goes through a rubber grommet, you can use washing up liquid to make it slip out easier. If you take the bottle out of the car you can weld the plastic back together with a hot knife or screwdriver, check it for leaks and weld some more if its still leaking. the plastic will weld quite good - this should do the trick..

Brake fluid low. how do i top it up? the tank is a weird shape.

Open the brake fluid reservoir and fill to the fill line. Be aware though that this is indicative of a leak somewhere. If it's low again you need to start looking for where the leak is. Also make sure you check the fluid levels on even ground for you vehicle. Good luck!

Fuel leaks on ground when I fill tank of a 1994 ford escort. Also fuel smell after I drive.

If fuel is leaking on the ground after filling the tank, then the tank should be removed to find a hole in it, it maybe at the top, also check all the fuel lines at the tank. Hope this helps, let me know.
