Fattie well i got the car for 400 bucks. it still moves , but it clunks and slips and jerks.

i didnt bother to pull the pan , because i found a good used tranny for 200 bucks. gunna put that one in and pull apart the old one and if its not too bad , ill rebuild it and have a good tranny.

grayzx35speed 600 isnt bad. As f250 stated drop the pan and look for shavings or bits in the tranny fluid. If there are Id lowball the price

GreySkorpion No problem, even worse case scenario and the trans is bad, its seems like a good deal.

Fattie thanks , im hoping its nothing major. because for the price its worth it , even if i just swap the engine into my zx3. but it be nice to have a winter beater.

GreySkorpion Well my 04 with a 2.3 just blew the whole tranny, more metal shavings than a machine shop, so I would say the rest is good, tranny, not so good. My repair bill for a reman trans is $2300 for a 5 year 75k warranty.
Drop the pan and see, could be a solenoid, simple fix.

So , im interested in purchasing an 04 focus sedan. it has a the 2.3 engine with auto tranny. owner says it slips and only goes into 1st and 2nd. I did a quick search but didnt find anything.
