Question about 2000 Ford Focus

Open Question

We were just on our way out in my 2000 ford focus i was going around a roundabout when there was a grinding noise and the car wouldn't move at all. Now its noisy in neutral with the engine running the noise is apparent with the clutch pedal released but not when depressed also makes noise with engine off while in motion. I think it's probably the input shaft bearings or the clutch release bearing and I've just had my clutch done could this be there fault?

    Hi jayfh411, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? I would say yes, but the exact problem needs to be identified. Did they leave some bolts out?

SOURCE: Right-Front Intermediate Axle Shaft Bearing

I am assuming this is an all wheel drive. That being the case you probably have an axle CV joint going out. If you hear noise when making a sharp left or right turn and accelerating that would more than likely be the problem. And, yes this is a serviceable part. Easy to replace if you have the proper tools to accomplish the task. Good luck.

SOURCE: how easy is it to replace a noisy clutch thrust

The thrust bearing is normally a part of a new clutch kit.Comprises pressure plate, clutch plate and thrust bearing.You will need to remove the gear box to change the bearing.The bearing basically slides onto the gearbox shaft. Recommend changing all three rather than just the beaing.You may want to get quotes from garages as dealers are expensive.

SOURCE: clutch bites high up on pedal movement

check clutch master cylinder rod adjustment and pedal height should be just higher than brake pedal. could try and bleed system also.
most hydraulic clutch systems have high take up points, adjust master cylinder rod, check for free play at top after adjusting if all that is O.K. then clutch plate may be nearly worn out but not slipping at this stage.

Grinding noise when driving no noise when parked jacked up and spun wheels no noise but found oil all round engine sump its a ford focus 03 tdci


Forget the oil leak thats just the rear end oil seal but the grinding noise is a wheel bearing for sure and as you go around a bend one way the noise lessens ,these cars are bulltet proof and the gearbox is stout so suspect a wheel bearing or ask a local mechanic to have a drive and get his opinion

Grinding noise, intermitent.


there are many things to cause this problem. torque converter is most likely expected if its 3.0 v6. notorious for these problems. If you don't know where it is located, it is behind the transmission. you will have to drop it and it is a cylinder. another issue that could cause rough vibration is bad motor mounts.

TAPPING NOISE, NOW IT WON'T GO INTO GEAR WITHOUT LOUD GRINDING NOISE AND ACTS LIKE TRANSMISSION WON'T ENGAGE TO DRIVE


If it is an automatic transmission, first check the fluid level. If it is low, fill it up and try it again. If the level is fine, then there is a bigger issue and you should seek a professional's help.

My 2000 Ford focus was making a grinding noise when driving the power stering went out and I look under the hood and the belt was loose what do I do... O battery light is now on.


sounds like your belt broke. replace with a new belt. battery light is on because the belt is not spinning the alternator. If it busted you should be able to pull it right out. Make sure to check the tensioner pulley, alternator pulley, power steering pump pulley and ac compressor pulley for free play(if you can make it spin with your hand it's good) and make sure that they're not binding or making any grinding noises. If the belt has never been replaced, then most likely it gave out.

I would guess that something inside of the transmission has failed and there is no longer a mechanical connection between the motor and the drive axles regardless of what gear you attempt to move in.[sheared splines, broken planetary, etc.] Often when this happens you won't hear any kind of noise because of the failed parts being inside the transmission case...instead the car just won't go anymore. You could have a CV drive axle joint that has failed but generally they will make some noticable rattling or grinding noise as they churn away when you try to go forward or reverse. If something has failed inside of the transmission then the transmission will need to be removed and repaired. It if is just a drive axle joint that has failed then that can be replaced without doing anything to the transmission. Hope this helps and good luck!

There is a grinding noise coming for the wheels and the truck start to move from side to side uncontrolable what is wrong with this truck it is a isuzu 2000


I woundn't think you would be using it
at all,I hope not

If you can hear grinding, I will guess a
Wheel Bearing Hub Assy

There is no way you should have
side to side or control issues ever
on any vehicle.

Anything that serious you wouldn't be here
or using it. It would be in the repair shop

did you hook up the flywheel to the torque converter? the clicking and grinding noise could be the trans is in park and the flywheel is going around, or the torque converter is bound up and not properly in the pump of the trans, and the clicking and grinding could be the parking pawl trying to stop and lock the trans.(this is what stops the car from rolling) I think its a torque converter alignment problem.

Check the front drive axles and boots. A bad cv (constant velocity) joint can cause this.
