Check for white smoke out the exhaust. If you have white smoke then you are burning coolant and probably have a blown headgasket. Another way for checking a blown headgasket is to open the coolant overflow tank and run the car. If you see constant bubbles in the coolant then you have a blown headgasket.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR CAR IF the gasket it blown as the engine will overheat and the cylinder head can warp/crack.

If there is no white smoke from the exhaust and no bubbles in the coolant system there is probably jsut a leak in the coolant system, visually check all the pipes and check around the waterpump housing for leaks. If you can't see a leak then pressure test the coolant system. A pressure test will push coolant out the leak and should help you find where it is.

Hope this helps

Ford focus 1.6 tdci on a 61 plate losing coolant when under load


Probably a pin hole leak some where in a rubber type pipe, hose clips may need tightening or your radiator may have been damaged by a stone coming through the grill. You could try getting some one to sit in car and keep revs up on engine until you can see where any steam is coming from, beware steam is very hot. If you find the leak let engine fully cool down before starting any work.

Sudden whit smoke


it is a blow head gasket. the coolant circulating around in the block is kept out of the cylinder by the head gasket. the coolant burns white and that is what you see out the exhaust pipe. i would recommend not driving the car with this problem because you can hurt other engine parts **** as spark plug and you risk over heating.

Tempreture sensor ford focus 2001


The sensor will most probably be mounted some where on the intake manifold near the thermastat. Many cars have two sensors, one for the computer and one for the guage. the one for the guage more than likely will have one or two wires, it should simply unscrew like a sparkplug. If you change it expect to lose some coolant.

Go to Autozone and ask them to read the engine code. There is no fee. If the car idles well and loses power when trying to accelerate then it may be the coil. Please post your results. Thanks.
