Hi, Had an issue recently with my focus (see link here http://www.fordowner...showtopic=16572) so I saw this post and thought I'd try out the diagnostics mode on instrument panel. I have a ford focus 2008 titanium with the Red LED digital display. the problem stated in the link actually also happended last week ago and on inspection I noticed that coolant sprayed in the engine
and the reservoir was on the MIN mark - the garage didn't find anything wrong with and said it was an airlock!
Anyway did the diagnostics test and it all and worked fine - no DTC's came up - however when I was scrolling through all the othe data I noticed my engine temp said 114 C and then having driven it a few miles I did the test mode again and it showed the temp as 135 C.
Is this figure the actual recorded temperature of the engine?
Excuse me for being thick but what does the temperature dial next to the fuel gauge on the instrument cluster measure because the needle on this is in the centre between 60 and 120?
