You have good instincts!
"We LOOK for the car that WAS STANDING here yesterday" does sound weird, because "we look" is better used, for example, with repeated actions -- "We look for books at Shop A instead of Shop B because they have a better selection" / "That cat looks for mice every time it goes outside" / "We look for furniture that is on sale because we don't want to spend a lot of money."
On the other hand, ""We ARE LOOKING for the car that STOOD here yesterday" would be fine in English.
