    my 1999 1.8 lx revs stay stuck on as I go to change to another gear and the car surges forward as the reves are stuck on so high. this problem goes away after the car has wormed up about 5 minuets but the car is basicley driveing itself and it is going to cause a crash. has any one got any idears?

Hi there, can you tell me the engine size. it sounds like you have a problem with the idle speed adjuster. you can try and remove it for cleaning. they tend to carbon up inside and stick, which causes the idle problems. however if your car is a diesel then this fix does not apply. cheers. dave

Ijust had parts replaced because my 2003 ford focus ideled way to high and drove way to fast now my transmission jerks me when driving does that have anything to do with it


Transmission can suddenly 'grab' when it/you changes gear. An automatic transmission can be sluggish to change gear if the fluid is dirty and needs changing. A worn/slipping clutch on a manual transmission causes the engine to rev high before the car picks up speed.

From your description it sounds as though there's a misfire or rough running with the engine which causes the jerking, not the transmission unit.

There's many things that can cause the symptoms you describe - the MAF sensor .. fuel starvation .. O2 sensor ..

Get a good mobile mechanic to look at your car - or take it to a workshop. I don't think it's your transmission at fault.

Engine warning light 2004 focus temperature rising


change your thermostat, and your temperature sensor. The sensors can have a tiny crack in them and cause a lot of problems. Once this is done you should notice a difference. Special note, check to ake sure your fan is coming on, and that your water pump is good. Remember if you change your water pump, you must change your timing belt. If you don't you will be replacing them both in under 6 months. Also make sure your coolant is still good.
