Question about 2001 Ford Focus
While driving the car started to make a knocking sound an when i pulled in the clutch to stop for a light yhe car died on me. it did that a few times i stoped an looked but the only thing i seen was that i was a little low on my oil but not enough to make the car knock. well on my way home it just died an wouldnt start. pushed it to the side of the road an checked all my gauges cause it started to smell hot but my gauges didnt read hot or anything. oil light was off an so forth. checked the water an it was bone dry. put antifreez in an it all just leaked right back out from the front of the block from one of the pullys. what do i do?
The pully that the coolant is leaking out from sounds like your water pump. with no coolant in the system the temperature gage wont read the correct temperature. replace the water pump and pray that the engine didn't overheat, as to do permanent damage.
