    I have a 2015 Ford Focus hatchback se. my check engine light is on and my car won’t go in reverse (though does go forward). I have heard a concerning noise from my engine every now and then about a month or so before this check engine light came on. Sounds like the engine is straining. Working...

However I just bought a new one and I’m just looking for a little guidance on a possible trans leak. I have 2012 manual focus SEL I bought for quite cheap from auction. I...

    When I removed my old engine from the bellhousing, the release bearing, a really weak spring, and a toothed ring popped right out. I was under the impression that the bearing and whatever the sping and ring are, were part of the slave cylinder assy? The bearing is fine, so I wonder what I should...
  6. Engine & Transmission Swap
    I've pulled my tranny out to change the clutch and slave cylinder. I'm just having a hard time getting the tranny back in place. Any tips for me? I got a transmission jack but there isn't much space for me to work with when I try to lift it in place. I tried benching it into place and got pretty...

  10. Focus ST
    Hello, I have an 05 zx4 st (2.3) manual and had a question about the transmission. I may just be a bit paranoid but I have to do a lot of highway driving in the car and it has a very low gearing. At 70 I'm just over 3k rpm, and the car has quite a few miles on it. I know that the SVTs have a 6...
  11. MK1 Focus
    I JUST bought my car, and I am having noise from my transmission, and want to get it rebuilt for the most part. Looking at getting a bearing/seal kit, but I've run into an issue. All of the kits I find ask if I have an 18.5mm or 20.5mm rear pinion bearing. I have zero clue how to figure out...

  13. MK3 Focus
    So I have a 2012 Focus Titanium that I bought last June with no issues. Around December it began to show the "stutter" and other problems that seem to be characteristic of the Focus transmission. After swapping the engine with a 2016 Focus that had a transmission that was supposed to have been...

    Hey guys new to the forum. I've tried to look on google mostly and did a search here for the placement of the speed sensor for a 2010 Ford Focus SE 5sp trans. I bought the sensor jacked it up thinking it'd be around the same area as the auto trans but had no luck. I'm thinking it might be on the...

    Okay so me and my girlfriend were taking a little road trip and we were cruising on the highway at like 90 for about 30 mins. All of a sudden it starts slowing down and I can’t accelerate anymore so I slowly pull over and turn off my car and turn it back on again. Now it’ll shift into drive and...
