2000 Ford focus se wagon overheat

When I drive in very slow traffic, my car always overheat. When it is moving or get on the highway, the temp gauge seems to be normal. Is there anything wrong with the fan relay or radiator temp sensor etc? Thanks in advance for your help.

My car is overheatting i changed the waterpump/thermostat/heatercore/reservoir and sensors


Does it slowly overheat while driving down the highway..If so the radiator is probably clogged..It can be partially clogged and cause the car to overheat,,but usually takes a little while...If it overheats in traffic..(stop and go ),,but does fine going down the road,,then it make sure your fan is coming on..

Dash temp guage goes to red on 2000 ford focus dohc zetech


Because you have done so many repairs already I would most likely say that the gauge is defective. I would use a manual temp probe and probe the coolant temp after the car has reached operating temp. Coolant will be between 180- 230 degrees. If coolant temp checks out and you can see coolant moving in radiator and the vehicle does not overheat then you will need either a gauge or a coolant sensor. To locate the sensor it should either be mounted in the thermostat goose neck housing or the intake manifold.

I would check to see if the radiator fans are coming on. Also check the freon pressure in the A/C system.

Why does my temp gauge fluctuate when i drive in town but stays level on the highway


When on the highway the wind blown through the grille naturally cools the rad coolant. While stuck in traffic the radiator fan will intermittantly cut in to prevent over heating, thus the fluctuations in the temp. gauge.
