Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I have a 2003 ford focus and I just had the coolant flushed today but the coolant heat indicator keeps getting too close to the red zone, it gets close and it goues back to the middle, I wonder of thats normal and if its safe for me to drive on the freeway this way
Were you having this problem prior to having the coolant system flushed?
If so, it is likely that your thermostat is sticking.
If not, it is likely that there is an air bubble left in your system from when it was flushed. Most of the time, air bubbles will work themselves out. You'll just have to keep an eye on it and add fluid as needed. If this is the issue, the shop that flushed your coolant system should take care of it for you as part of their service.
Do you have any "check engine" lights?
Hope this helps and good luck!
