I recently purchased a 2001 Ford Focus and I will appreciate if anyone can
suggest a good shop where I can go for service. The car has been always
serviced at Metro Ford (Calgary) but by looking at their invoices I think
that their rates are not exactly reasonable.
I did not get heat in the car for quite some time this morning and I suspect
that the thermostat needs to be replaced.
Esp if heat came all of a sudden...
Check the coolant level first. Easiest way is to look at the overflow when
it's hot.. then check to see if it has dropped after the engine has cooled
to ambient temp.
If it hasnt, replace the cap or check for breakage in that line
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
Yeah, this is what hapened. First, I thought that this could be a "feature"
that does not let you have heat in the car before the engine is warm but
engine warmed up quite some time before I got any heat.
Thanks for the hint. I just got the car on Monday morning and did not have a
chance to look around too much.
