Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
It started a couple weeks ago when my car started popping out of gear while driving down the road. also when stopped i can feel it popping from drive to neutral and back. also at night time when it does it my lights keeping going on and off . i was told to take it to a shop and have it tested on the computer. i did and they couldnt find any problems. then it went away, until today it started doing it again. nobody can figure out the problem. anyone have this problem before?
If it's a standard, you may need a new clutch. If it's an automatic, you may need new clutch plates. They wear out over time. I had an old Saturn with an automatic tranny, and when I would shift into reverse it wouldn't go into gear unless I revved it a bit, then it would clunk and drop into gear.. Not very healthy for the car, your tranny may need a rebuild.. Hope your piggy bank is full.

there is a plug connector on the top of the engine (you should be able to see it with the engine cover still on) check the wires going to the plug as they are known to brake
please let me know if this helps

It sounds like when ford rebuilt your rearend they didn't set the gear lash correctly. What is happening is that when your truck cools down the gears are contracting and they are not aligning properly because they did not set the lash right when they installed your ring and pinion gear. When the gears heat up they may be freeing up. Ultimately this will end up chewing your new rear end to pieces. It is only a matter of time. It could also be the pinion bearing, if the tech put your pinion bearing on with an impact wrench it will fail in a short time. It needs to be put on by hand with a torque wrench. Some ideas to look into, it may not be whats going on, but it sure sounds like it.

change the fuel filter. and clean the mass air flow sensor usein a can of carb cleaner from any parts shop. depending on the miles on your car the timing belt mit have jumped a tooth. have to change it every 120.000 km.

Today while driving my 2007 Ford Focus SE The day was getting warm so I turned on the A/C everything was working OK for about two or three Minutes then the ABS caution light came on and then we could start smelling something getting hot so I turned the A/C Off and by doing so the Caution Light went off and the smell went away. I got my car checked by a Mechanic he took a reading for trouble codes and told me all was normal but he wasn't equip for shorts and suspected it could be behind the dash, figured everything would be ok as long as we didn't use the A/C. So the family took the car to the store only to give me a call that now they weren't able to start the car. The battery seem to be in good shape with plenty of power but it didn't seem it was getting it to the starter in fact it took a jump in order to start the car at the store. now that I've got it home, the car starts fine but I Still Get An ABS caution light when I put the A/C on And that smell comes back.
