Question about 2001 Ford Focus
A 2001 Ford Focus does not have an outlet on the radiator for a cap. It has a de-gas type cooling system and what would traditionally be called a "radiator cap" has become the de-gas bottle cap. It is located on the de-gas bottle just in front of the passenger strut tower and behind the passenger headlamp assembly. Do not open this cap when the engine is hot as you may be burned by the coolant.

Hi, I have a 2001 Ford Focus that is overheating it marks the red point, when driving only if its on with out moving it only gets to the middle part and does not go beyond that, ive tried turning the A/C on to see if it lowers the heating problem and it doesnt, ive replace the thermostat like 7 months ago and also the water pump, i checked the fans and they work at a certain time so they do turn on. Could someone please help me to find the solution. thanks

I do not believe that there is a radiator cap on the Focus. I believe that the coolant is filled from the what most would consider the overflow tank. It is an overflow tank of sorts but serves also to fill the radiator.
