my underestanding from what I've read about 3rd gear failsafe is thats all you get for forward gears is 3rd.

After my wrench light, I have 1,2 3 and it shifts normally. Since I have ,after the wrench light, a functioning 3rd gear and SSa code and no 4th gear it must be a leak, either thru a seal or a broken spring/stuck valve. Am I making sense? Haven't had to deal with many transmission issues.

I'm tinkering with trans until school is out. Then I'll have more time to dedicate to installing a used unit. If I get it sorted out, great. If not time for a used one.


thanks for the help!

Make SURE converter is all the way in when trans gets close to engine, common for them to slip out of place moving trans around. Like 3 steps to go over there before it is all the way in. Trans is in right when you have to pull converter forward a little bit to install the studs in flexplate holes.

i'm never doing this again. it was easier to replace the hpop, injector orings and rebuild the rurbo in my 6.0 diesel. t trans almost fell off the jack twice, I couldn't get the stupid trans up in place without something hitting. it took me 3 hours of adjusting, pushing, pulling, swearing, prying, cursing and loudly proclaiming how much this sucks to get the stupid trans to line up.

Thank you for the info about indexing the t/c. That actually was the only thing that worked out.

thanks for the help. I'll be finishing up tomorrow and give a recap.

Front wheel drive cars sure have tight engine compartments. have to get the angle right of everything and bolt together and then jack up into place and even then theres usually cussing , complaining to get it into its home correctly....

glad you got it handled.

My 2 cents so if anyone reads this thread later. I always drop the front subframe when pulling a transmission in a focus. Makes removing and installing the transmission a breeze. Furthermore, at high mileage it is a great time to refresh the sway bar mounts and steering rack mounts.
