Hello there, many faults will cause your 2002 Ford Focus to overheat. When it overheats and if one of the radiator hoses expands the most likely fault is the head gasket. When a head gasket leaks it allows combustion gases into the coolant system, causing hoses to expand and in some cases blow off.
If you’d like to have this repaired, a qualified technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your overheating car and make any repairs required.
