What a difference changing transmission fluid makes!!

I got my 00 se auto trans ztec equipped focus a few months back. It only has 114,000 on it. It has had issues shifting from the days I got it. very lethargic taking off like it wasn't shifting to first gear when I stopped and wash taking off in second. Just all around sloppy shifting accompanied by terrible mpg! I went and got fresh fluid and filter today, changed it all out, WOW!!!!! What a difference, its like driving a new car. My old fluid looked and smelled good but I had a feeling it was original fluid. Anyway sorry this is so sloppy and all . I worked a double and messed with my truck and car all day. Lol. just wanted to put this out there. If you're having slightly sloppy shifting, try changing the fluid first. especially if you're not sure when it was last changed. It was cheap and easy.
