transmission

I had my clutch replaced and a week later ( today) i got in my car and 5th and 6th gear were not there! I had it in the place of 5th and 6th, and it was still in 3rd and 4th. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you linkage came off somewhere. Happens a lot, especially when tranny work is done. If you know where the linkages are, check them, if not just head to the dealer, itll be a quick fix if it is the linkage.

i just had this problem about a week ago, there are actually 2 sifter linkage cables, the one works 1-4 and the other just 5and 6. they had to order the part for me, but intill the part got there they just zip tied the linkage together and i went easy on it and it lasted long enought for them to put the new one in...about 4 days. it took them like 6 hours to install, but thats probably just becasue they were not a svt certified dealer, and they had never worked on an svt focus before

Warranty does wonder's, take it back to Ford and by all means let them deal with it. That's my suggestion...

You took your SVTF to a non-SVT dealer?!?! Wow, you're far braver than me.
