Moved to MkIII Focus section, because the driving tips stickie is at the top of this page.
LOTS more trans. info. in the MkIII problems section.
Bottom line, it can't take constant creeping. Clutch isn't engaged until the 5-7 MPH zone, so you need enough space to get moving that fast before moving in stop & go traffic. 5MPH is a good walking speed, we're not talking very fast here.
The more creeping the more likelihood of shudder on clutch engagement.
Overheat warning for the trans. is based on recent use pattern, it doesn't have an actual temperature sensor.
