Was driving car last week and engine warning.

  • 2003 FORD FOCUS
  • 92,000 MILES

Was driving car last week and engine warning light came on followed by auto tranmission light followed by red on tempreture gauge, took it to mechanic he stated that it could need head skimming and head gasket after looking at diagnostic machine, he then took it for a drive, came back, turned off warning lights and said it seemed that id been lucky and if it happens again to take it back to him, I then drove at a slow pace for five days then yesterday morning I took the car out, drove just over 60 mph, and the tempreture gauge went to red, auto transmission light came on followed by the engine warning light, drove home very slowly as car lacked power and was shuddering?

Scanners never tell you the issue. It gives you a direction of failure.

Get the codes and we will start

overheating may have damaged the head gasket now.

Suggest a new shop.
