Having problems with your 2000 Ford Focus ?
ECT sensor location 2000 Ford Focus ZTS
\015 The car shows it is overheating but there is no smoke and no head gasket is blown. The thermostat seem to be fine....only thing I can think is the ECT but I don't know where it is or how to access it\015
If you have 2.0L DOHC Zetec the temp sending unit is on the same plastic unit the thermostat sits in. Right in front below, the plastic on the sending unit was blue for me but might be black or brown. It could also be the gauge itself which i've also replaced due to it going bad. Make sure when you flush your radiator you let it run on an incline, front of vehicle higher then the rear, to get what bubbles you can out.
