Check the lower hose that it does not collapse when hot.The wire spring inside the hose may have been crushed and water not flowing.Be sure there's always coolant to the level in the catchcan/reservoir and keepit at the mark/level,being it's been on the road this long,may need to backflush radiator by unhooking the lower hose from engine and hook a garden hose to the lower radiator hose and turn the hose on with engine running.When the thermostat closes from the cool water,it will slow down running from engine where lower hose connects meaning the thermostat is good.Otherwise,replace the thermostat.Takes a bit of work,but you know what's up with this procedure.Rigger.
key code is on metal tag or plastic tag in glove box with owner manual packet. Also, dealer who sold car new has code in sales folder.
ALso, call Ford Customer service. They may have it. Kind of old though, but try.
Code PO10 has to do with the "Camshaft Position Actuator circuit Bank 1" an actuator is a relay,solenoid or motor that send a signal to the cumputer that something is wrong.i think in this case it is the Camshaft Position Sensor or the camshaft interrupter magnet. Probably the sensor has to be replaced. It is located on the engine block.
