Not sure if the focus is the same arrangement as a mondeo2. On mondeo the clutch master cyl gets the fluid from the brake master cyl. So if there is a leak in the clutch system it could empty the brake master cylinder.
Did u check to see if there was any brake fluid in the brake master cylinder ?

2002 mercury cougar overheats at idle and when drove faster ik head gasket isnt blown, thermostat , water pump, relay, its been flushed out till clean idk whats wrong at all.


I suspect that if you do not have electric fan/s then the fan clutch or viscous fan hub has failed
indications are over heating at idle , stop lights , slow traffic, high rpms at slow speed but cools down as soon as there is enough road speed to put air through the radiator.

Focus v reg ( Jan 2000 ) GHIA 2litre not hatchback. Trouble with central locking. all doors lock except passenger door. None of doors would lock until I disconnected Passenger door lock Cannot get lock...


Best way is to turn the key quarter turn to allow the rods to move over. The lugs tend to break when removing doors locks, so best order a couple before attempting to re-fit.
Kind regards

Hi,you need to get the codes read first this will probably show an intermittent problem with the accelerator pedal position switch,if not check for air and vacumn leaks to all the actuators ,the fuel pumps are know for internal failure if you use bad fuel,
