Question about 2004 Ford Focus
It is very intermittent sometimes it goes into gear . last night going home stopped at traffic lights went to pull away 1 st gear fine the engine was then reving up until it slipped into 2nd then did the same into 3rd . 3 to 4 was ok . i started my car this morning and the gears were fine all the way to work as if nothing had happened . this has happened about 4 times now . can you tell me what is wrong . ?
This may be caused by fluid starvation from a plugged trans filter, also a shift solenoid inside the trans may be sticking, I would recommend u change the trans fluid and filter (required at 60,000 miles), also go to a Kragen auto or any chain parts store like it and ask to have a code test run on the powertrain control module , it is free.
