Great thread but could someone please clean it up and delete all the garbage?
I passed this one up yesterday until I realized that I have the P0850_52 DTC... hopefully this will fix my transmission issues? Though, I'm sure my clutch is already toast.6361 - 2012-2013 Focus - Various Drivability, Transmission Shift/Engagement Concerns and/or DTC’s – Service Tip

6532 - 2012-2013 Focus - Vibration in Reverse After Transmission Removal and Installation - Service Tip
Some 2012-2013 Focus vehicles equipped with a DPS6 transmission may exhibit a vibration in reverse after a transmission removal and installation. Prior to following normal diagnostics, first ensure the two roll restrictor bolts are correctly installed. The roll restrictor to engine bolt is longer than the roll restrictor to frame bolt which could touch the steering rack and ground out. If no issues are found, follow normal diagnostics.
6531 - 2011-2014 Fiesta / 2012-2014 Focus – Fluid Leak Between the Engine and Transmission.
Some 2011-2014 Fiesta and 2012-2014 Focus vehicles equipped with a DPS6 transmission may experience a fluid leak between the engine and transmission. Be aware that the engine oil and DPS6 transmission fluid are similar in color and texture. A transmission fluid leak at the input shaft seal can cause a buildup of fluid in the bell housing; creating the appearance of a rear main seal leak. The rear main seal should only be replaced after a rear main seal failure is confirmed through appropriate diagnostics outlined in the online Workshop Manual (WSM) Section 303-00 / Diagnosis and Testing.
I thought the same thing, but that's not saying that 2014s currently have the problem, just that the engine/bell housing/seal setup is the same as the rest of the years.6531 is disturbing, there is a whole thread here of people excitedly awaiting their 2014 focus's, to which 6531 directly refers, for the same problem well known in posts here.
if it does, the same sequence of events can happen,I thought the same thing, but that's not saying that 2014s currently have the problem, just that the engine/bell housing/seal setup is the same as the rest of the years.
Big, its important to remember that it is a very small percent of the owners having this problem. This is a highly popular car selling world-wide.Wow, mr_cassandra, disturbing to no end. I guess Ford went all in with this tranny. No matter how many fail, they will not fix or replace anything in the construction or build process because it costs too much money.
