Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Son parked his car and about five minutes later car started to smoke and antifreeze started going everywhere. I checked hoses and reserve for leaks and nothing. Put water in reserve tank and it started flowing out from somewhere on the back side of the engine.
It sounds like you have a blown head gasket, check your engine oil, take off your oil cap and if it is frothy around the cap and inside the head, you have a blown head gasket.

above solution is correct ,check the rubber hose that lets the water out in case its blocked its the same one that does the A/C as well

Could be water pump, radiator, freeze plugs, hoses, ect. try and isolate the area by putting a piece of card board down on the ground and line up what is above it. Garages use a pressure tester on the cooling system to see where the leak is. I would guess water pump,or small bypass hose

It could be a hose on top of the engine leaking back there. It could also be a freeze plug on the back of the engine. Its a round disk about 2-3" in diameter and is recessed about 3/8" into the block. Check those out and make sure all hoses are good and tight. Any hoses that are kind of puffed out above the clamp should be replaced

I don't have the same coolant system that Ford has listed, my is different for my 2000 Ford Taurus SE 6cyl 3.0L. Where can we find the right part. I want to the junk yard 3 years ago and find one but the problem with that one is the top keep popping off. I have replaced the top three times and I am pissed because I love my car but I keep having to spend money on this system. H.E.L.P!!
