Question about 2005 Ford Focus
it sounds like the thermostat is broken, do not keep diving it as it will destroy the engine, is the knocking more like a ticking sound? or a loud bang type knock?
take off the oil cap and check for any yellow gunk, if you see that then the head gasket has gone, sometimes you can still drive them for a few weeks before you see this but do take a look.
hope this helps
