It could be that crossover pipe too. I think it's around there somewhere, but I haven't owned a Zetec, so I don't know for sure.

Other elusive problems are any tiny leak from the cooling system, so be aware of any loss of coolant no matter how minor. Coolant systems must be sealed in order to function properly, otherwise you'll overheat quickly as well as boil over.

I'd chalk that one up to driving slow over very well heated asphalt not to mention the extra heat that running the AC causes in front of the radiator. It might have been just enough to tip you over the edge even with the fans running. Things get silly when temps get up over 100F.
