I thought the Zetec cars had fail safe cooling systems that would make it run on 2 cylinders during a loss of coolant event. That is what my owners manual says anyway on my '03 zetec. I think it also says it will not go back to normal running until the CEL is reset. I have never had this happen so I'm just repeating what the manual says.
