Engine Cooling problem
2003 Ford Focus 6 cyl 120000 miles
I've been having a problem when driving up a long hill on the freeway, with my air conditioning on, my heat gauge goes from mid level to red when driving. I replaced old resevouir and cap and flushed it. Replaced the sensor (which was cracked), and car did well until went up the long hill again. I cranked up the heat and the gauge went back to mid level within 15 seconds. Car is fine with air on when going up small hills or anywhere. I was told it was maybe an air pocket in cooling fluids somewhere, or fan doesn't go high or the thermastat is bad. Fans go on fine.
have the same problem?
