Overheating no leaks focus 2000

..Sounds like the thermostat is sticking closed. Replace and make sure all coolant hose's are in good condition. Smoke may be steam when engine is getting too hot and leaking out of hose's because of high pressure.

Seepage from the top of the 2 lines that lead into the tranny. could it be bad clamps or worn hose end ?

A hose will go before a clamp. The clamp could be to tight, causing a leak over time. I would get both items, just in case. Check for the hose at a local junkyard. You can get clamps at hardware stores and auto part stores fairly cheap. Before though, make sure the hose is positioned correctly and the clamp is tight enough. Both could be ok, just needing adjusted. Hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

sounds like the thermostat gasket is leaking. Might as well change the thermostat and gasket at the same time. make sure the hose clamp is tight sometimes it needs to get tightened up. could be lealking from the hose and running down.

Ford focus, 2000 zx3 code p0455

your engine code means "big leak" in the evap control system, this system has alot of pieces, but you are looking for a vacuum leak most probably, look at your vacuum hoses, and refer to the vacuum diagram stuck under your hood for routing, see if you have a bad hose, or disconnected hose some where. these are small vacuum hoses that attach to the purge valve, air filter housing, and charcoal cannister. let me know what you find.

You can also use silicone sealant which is much better.

Good Luck !

Engine is overheating

Two things could be wrong here. 1.) The easiest to replace is the Thermostat. Follow the big hose off the top of the radiator and it will take you right two it. A hose clamp 2 bolts and its off. The part is around 15 bucks at your local parts store. 2.) you could have a bad water pump. to change this around 150 if you do it yourself. or if you have it done around 300. I would start by changing the thermostat as thats your most likely problem. Thanks for using FixYa!

Thermostat replacement 2003 ford focus se, with 2.0, 16 valve ztech engine

Follow the upper radiator hose to where it attaches to a housing (2bolts hold the housing in place) remove the hose clamp here and then remove the housing bolts, inside the housing is your thermostat. Clean off the surface of the housing, and where it attaches to the engine. Install the thermostat, and a new gasket (or O -ring ), carefully replace the housing, being sure the thermostat doesn't slip out of position, tighten the housing bolts, reattach the radiator hose to the housing, add coolant to proper level, check for leaks, u r good to go! Make sure the thermostat is installed in the right direction, if put in backwards the car will overheat. countrycurt0
