problem #4

Aug 092008

Focus SE 4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


It hesitates into gear going uphill. Worse on rainy days... been driving it like this for 8 months now... once the tranny like comes on I have to pull over and shut off vehicle... once I do that and turn it back on its fine. Also... worse when AC is on... I'm thinking its a sensor... hoping its a sensor! I'm in college and dont have alot of money to pour into this car...

Focus ZTS 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

The car transaxle light comes on when going over steep mt. passes. The cars performance then drops and the transmission has a hard time shifting gears. To fix the problem I pull over and turn off the car for a time. The engine does not over heat. I've replaced the transmission to solve the problem and still have the same problems.

Focus LX 2.0L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

This car was purchased new in 2000. The transmission is going out for the third time. The first time - in 2000 shortly after I purchased it. I do not remember the exact year the second time, but here I go again - the third go around 2008.
