Hey guys and girls I havent been here for a while sorry. I was thinking about trading my focus for an SRT-4. BUt now it looks like I may just put a turbo into mine. I have a minor problem. When I throw my car into third from second or down from fourth it grinds. I thought it was the syncro but the ford garage said no. I've takin it to them twice and asked them to fix it and nothing happened. THis time the blamed it on my winter mats making the clutch pedal stick pardon my cow lingo BULLSHIT!! Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Chad

I HAVE A MUSTANG AND IT DID THAT , BUT IT WAS FOURTH GEAR. DEFINATELY A SYNCRO OR WORN GEAR. IF YOU RACE MUCH, IT'S BOUND TO HAPPEN WITH A STOCK SETUP ON ANY CAR BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONE THAT'S SLAMMED THE HARDEST! HOFEFULLY IT'S UNDER WARRANTY, BUT IF NOT ASK HOW MUCH TO FIX IT. IT MIGHT BE WORTH BUYING A USED TRANNY IN GOOD SHAPE FROM JUNK YARD OR E-BAY! [driving]

This problem is fairly common in some foci, I had it in mine long ago. We replaced my tranny under warranty, I got a newer 2002 tranny and never had a problem again.

Its a synchronizer. It should be under warranty. Mine went out and they fixed pretty quick. Just get it fixed soon tho.....grinding=bad
