A long time ago when I drove a VW, early on I drilled a " (.25") hole in the top of the T-stat to allow the fluid in the upper part of the engine to drain down when flushing. Worked like a charm, and never looked back. Haven't tried it on my Focus yet, I've got a while to go before I do, but I'm going to try it. GL
