I'm a newbie here, I have a 01 Ford focus. Haven't been real fond of Ford but with the new design and changes it has been a great experience for me. I do have a question though. Is it possible for the shift solenoid to cause the vehicle not to go in any gear? When I put the car in gear nothing happens, but as I'm putting it back in park there's a grinding like it was a manual trans. trying to catch the gear. So is it at all possible this could be the problem or is it just what I think it to be the trans. Is gone? Anyone ever had this issue? All comments can be helpful.
