Cwallyman Fluid looks full I was going to add some see how the level changes no noises or nothing Rpms change when going into reverse but that's it I ordered a and b solenoid was going to replace them but no codes

amc49 Is the fluid OK and up to level? If so then a line pressure check in order, sounds like you may have a catastrophic fail there. Hear any clunks or other noises when it happened? Failing all gears at once says no oil pressure or broken part.

If it were one of the earlier design ATX that has the spindly oil pump driveshaft I'd say stripped the flats on it but these drive old school with flats on convertor snout; they don't break near so common but not impossible.

Cwallyman OK I'm at a loss I usually find what I'm looking for on this form but it seems like no one else is having this issue or I just haven't found it so if someone could point me in the direction that would be great I have a 2005 Ford focus ZX3 with automatic transmission it will go into park and will come out of park no problem but when you put it in drive or any other gear it does nothing it doesn't engage at all I don't want to start just replacing parts or the transmission for no reason I'm not the kind of person I ordered the solenoids and a gasket and filter and probably will change them but I can't for the life of me find out any information that I can check with my Obd2 app in the app it shows the transmission range sensor is being selected the right gear when I put it in drive Shows drive when I put it in reverse it shows reverse but it does not do anything what am I missing please help
At a red light one day out of nowhere I go to step on the gas and it doesn't go anywhere towed home and have been waiting to fix it

amc49 Messed up TPS will certainly affect shifting sometimes, depending on how messed up.

Mines doing the same thing! Only tps code though no tranny codes!

demell Hi i have an 04 focus 2.0 ztec and it pops out of gear when trying to shift into 3rd but only when cold then its perfect also the only codes i ever get are the tps and ive replaced it 4 times now and the latest i got from ford itself but still giving me that code! Also once and awhile i can smell a burning smell. i've also replace the mass air flow trying to get the tps code to stop tripping checked the wiring and all seems good not sure where to go from here! Thanks!

amc49 Define 'lag' better, a poor word choice that can mean more than one thing there.

Trans can be worn out at that mileage and you know what that means.

crazyjess I have a problem with my transmission, it lags when it shifts from 2 to 3 gear. I have an automatic transmission 2004 Duratec 2.3l with 189,000 miles. I'm trying to figure out the issues..
