My 2003 Ford Focus Zetec engine, I think either the clutch is going out or maybe just needs fluid. It doesn't want to really go anymore, slow to get up to speed. How and where would I check the fluid on it?

I have a 2003 b2300, my problem is that when i push the clutch in, it drops to the floor and doesn't allow me to shift. I checked the fluid level and it is fine. it does appear to have a slow leak (about 1 drip every five minutes,) right where the oil pan meets up to the transmission. I THINK it is leaking brake fluid, but I am not sure.

My 2000 Ford Taurus leaked anti freeze fluid when I turn on the heat. That happened for about a few weeks (only apparently when the heat was on). Then a few days ago I noticed green fluid (anti freeze) dripping from the exhaust after the ignition was cut off. Today the car stalled as I was pulling into a parking lot, and won't won't start again. There are leaks under the engine area. Car's only 116k miles. I think it's the head gasket, but not sure. I fear repair would be too costly.
Well when antifreeze leaks only when the heater is on, this is an indication that the heater core needs to be replaced. In many vehicles this also causes the leakage of radiator fluid into the cabin of the vehicle. ... 2000 Ford Taurus
I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZTW and it is leaking coolant. It is leaking from what looks like a small plug right under the two main hoses. But it isn't leaking from the hoses. We were thinking it was the heating core, but are not sure if that is even a plug, thought we know that it where the leak is from.
The drain is there for the condensation from the air conditioner evarorator. And, yes, it probably is the heater core. It is Very difficult to remove. You have to remove the Whole dash - and more.... The dealer sells the whole heater assembly for $52 ... 2003 Ford Focus
Ford focus 2001 zx3 107xxx. I have replaced the spark plugs, wire set, fuel filter,fuel injectors,timing belt,valve cover,throttle, motor mounts, vacumm leak. Car felt rough after the vacumm leak hose was replaced so I did the wire set wich I needed but still the same and shakes a little with a rattle notice when stopped or air is on. Now I'm told to change the serpentine belt and idler pulley along with steering fluid. Would that do it ? Any other suggestions ?

Manual transmission I just changed the clutch in my 2000 ford focus and when i pulled it off there was no fluid in fly wheel housing. Do I need to put fluid in there does it not need any in that part of the transmission? I didnt think it would cause it would make the fly wheel slip but i just wanted to make sure.

2000 ford explorer limited edition I bought one used 120k. underneath of truck has some kind of leak. looks like its been doing it along time because of the build up.

I have a slow power steering fluid leak and my wife took the car into a shop that is notorious for trying to fix more than the problem you want them to solve. I want a base line on if the whole power steering system needs to be replaced, how much will that cost and if it is only a hose how much should that cost? Also what is a good hourly rate for mechanical labor these days? $80 an hour is what this shop charges which I feel is too high. Any info is appreciated. Thanks, Warren
