Need to take it in but if no indications of the issue from yesterday it may be a waste of time. I do a lot of driving so don't want it to happen when I'm out on the turnpike again.
to the forum! You'll find excellent help from your fellow posters.
Definitely take your Focus to the local Ford dealership for a check up. At the same time send me a PM with the VIN, current mileage, as well as your personal contact and dealer info, and I'll have the Customer Service Manager in your area review your case.

Excellent to learn your Focus is no longer overheating. If you ever need assistance in the future, give me a shout out.
