The OP should be taken seriously. A pinhole in the reservoir is no laughing matter. 431 people died when the St. Francis Dam failed hours after William Mulholland, the Chief Engineer, inspected it. Link

2000 models had upgraded it to a DVI. AGP is for losers.

So called "experts" often don't know what they're talking about. My grandfather died 20 minutes after being given a clean bill of health in a day long physical exam.

I don't think you mean "reservior, unless the pinhole was at the bottom and you neglected it for a long time.  The reservoir is the radiator overflow tank and is translucent plastic, and when the engine is hot, excess coolant is supposed to flow into it, and then when the engine cools down the coolant is supposed to flow back into the radiator.

Replace 2000-2007 Ford Focus reservoir


 

On the other hand it's easy for a leaky radiator to cause an engine to overheat.

California has had its issues with reservoir leaks. Check YouTube for when the Baldwin Hills Dam collapsed in the early 60's. Another near catastrophe after the Sylmar earthquake in the early 70's. This was long before there were Ford Focuses. Ford Pintos existed, which were crap cars that leaked a lot.
