Question about 2000 Ford Focus
This is a classic sign of a blown head gasket, pressure from the combustion chambers are leaking in to your cooling system causing the coolant to over flow out and your engine to overheat.
Inspect your engine oil and look for any signs of coolant mixed in your oil. The oil will look milky and not black like is should, very sludgy. Note that the coolant is corrosive to the engine's internal bearings so try to have the issue addressed before the bearings are damaged and your going to have replace the whole engine in your car.
