I hate bumping an older thread however I need some help please with my 2012 Ford Focus.
Went out tonight and stopped at McDonalds for about 30 minutes then got back on the interstate and suddenly felt a lurch like in the car and then the transmission overheating warning came on.
Pulled over and let it rest for a few minutes and turned it on and tried to go and the engine will rev but it acts like it is transferring very little power so was only able to creep under 20 mph and thus triggers the overheat msg again.
So, transmission bad or is it more likely the TCM decided to die again? Car has over 230k miles so its seen alot of action.
My brother checked the computer and the codes he pulled were

Shift Error
P07A4 - Transmission Code

Transmission Friction Element "B" Apply
P2701 - Transmission Code

(PATS) Key
