I have a ford focus 2003 SE that is overheating.
The radiator, pump , and fans seem to be working fine.
I took it to a mechanic and he tried to change the Thermostat....when he opened it it didnt have one in there to begin with! He said if he put one in there it might make it worse.
Can it be the temperature sensors??
Ive had this car for about a year (it was salvaged and preowned) but ive used it a lot and its never had any problems. it currently has 70,000 miles.
It overheats quickly when i push it to about 45+ mph. If it cruise around the city it doesnt really overheat. If i let off the gas it quickly goes back to the half mark (normal temp). To me it seems like its misreading the temperature, but i dont know anything about cars so your help is greatly appreciated. Thank You!
