Water pump. First make sure you have enough coolant and the reservoir system isn't leaking(or any leaks). Fords are hard to get air out of the system. I always over fill Fords because of air. It will usually purge out in a couple days. only getting warm at idle and hot going down the road is a water pump or something is still clogged up. IE.. heater core.

Most hazards flash brake lights not the turn signals, double check your signal bulbs. Try to get it to flas fast and visually inspect which bulb isn't working. Then replace that bulb

Hello pamgolmon: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. The 2-0 dual cam engine is a interference engine. This means if the engine jumps time at the timing belt. It will bend the valves. As for the timing marks on the camshafts. Their are no marks to be located. To set the timing marks on this engine requires special tools. This makes it expensive for not only the do it yourself mechanic but also the repair shops also. If the valves were bent you must pull the head for the repairs also.
I know this is not the answer you were hoping for but it is the only answer to give. Please rate the quality of the answer as this way we know your answer was correct. Please just ask if you need further help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Disconnect your air mass sensor. It monitors the cleanlyness of your air filter. Test drive the car. If the symptoms went away, replace your air flow sensor assembly. It's pretty pricy, about $80. You can drive your car with the air flow sensor quick harness disconnected until you can afford to buy the sensor.
