Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus

1 Answer

I have a ford focus se 2002

I have a ford focus se 2002 not a svt.......the leak drips straight down, I just looked for the raditaor cap, there doesnt seem to be one, I read about how important it is to keep the radiator cool, (yes Im a woman) I just had the upper radiator hose replaced because it blew, I have looked for leaks around the resouvior and cant seem to locate any, I havent driven my car since I noticed the resovoir wont hold water or antifreeze, I checked the oil its okay, I checked the engine oil, its ok, can it be another hose or is it a small hole in the resovoir?

No it sounds like your water pump bearing has worn causing the leak.Change the water pump.

My ford focus is leaking water from what i think is the water hose but im not sure

When the engine is cool enough to touch the hoses, both upper and lower hoses at both ends, use your hands to feel if there's any water leaking. The best time is when the engine is warm and there's pressure to observe the water seeping from the hoses. Also check the ground to see what area around the motor it may be dripping from. Good Luck!!!

Ford Focus 2002: won't go into gear.. any gear

automatic transmissions can break down over time. my focus had its transmission replaced once about 3 years ago and at that time my boss owned it and had it replaced for at least 4 digits 2000-3000$.

Manual transmissions last a bit longer[ not much ] and are lighter an easy to repair, but a shop will charge the same for the parts.

automatic are heavy and a little more complex

if you have a friend who is good with cars im sure you can save a lot more money

but make sure you have transmission fluid. look for a yellow cap [ sometimes its different colors] that should be to the right or left mid section and remove the cap and make sure its the transmission fluid cap and check to see if its low. try refilling but check for leaking so you dont waste it

your trans might be leaking so check to see if a red fluid it dripping from under your car, that may be the problem and the transmission may need to be replaced
