Very nice video on the mechanical parts. But no explanation of what the problems are, and why, and how they could be remedied. i think the answer is in the mystery box, the TCU. It just can't figure out when and how to shift. I think there's a solution to be had, but Ford is busy designing EVs instead and is just waiting for the Foci to die.
Good video but the guy talking makes it seem like this transmission is an engineering marvel not an engineering disaster like several courts have already decided. This video must have been made well before the issues were well known by the public.
You guys are blaming the Transmission and the transmission isnt the problem or the TCM , The problem is the software running the TCM , You can build the best running longest lasting part and if the software running it sucks the part will suck
There was internal Ford documents released where Ford knew the software was a an issue long before production in 2012 this was posted on the net on top of that my Custom Tune greatly improves the shudder or cures it so that as well proves its a software issue like I have been saying sense mid 2012

Hello fellow Focus aficionados,
Been having a very slow leak show up at the junction of the transaxle and the motor. I think I pinpointed where it is coming from exactly (at least I think). See pics for oil leak. Showing both sides of motor and transaxle.
I have seen one post about a similar...
I had to replace temp sensor in my 2002 zetec dohc engine. I finished drove car and noticed a battery light. I realized I forgot to plug in alternator so I plugged it in cranked up and everything was fine for a second then suddenly I got a cylinder 2 and 3 misfire. I opened hood and noticed my...
