SOURCE: my ford focus tdi 2003 cant select 1st,3rd or 5th gears.

Car is in limp in mode unless you have the tools to work on automatic transmission you will need to take it to a transmission shop. Of course you can check oil level but I suspect you have other issues.

88 - 89 festiva "L" models came with a 4 speed. Unless it has been swapped with a 5 speed from an 88 - 89 "LX" or a 90 - 93 festiva 4 gears is all you have. Everything you ever wanted to know about your festiva can be found a fordfestiva.com. I've seen 8 festivas with 500,000 miles now. They are bullet proof and big time fun. Easy to work on too. And most owners are really down to earth because we don't care what people think of us. Festivas are also easy and cheap to make very fast. Get on the forum. We will welcome you!

Yes, that is one possibility. You will need a computer scan tool to check to see if you have a fault code relating to the shift solenoids. Other possibilities are physically damaged internal parts. [Is the transmission fluid discolored? It should be bright red. Does it smell burnt? [like burnt cork] How many miles are on this vehicle? When was the last time the ATF and transmission filter were changed? {Yeah, I hear you thinking "You mean I actually have to change that stuff?] Number one cause of transmission problems is lack of owner maintenance [stupid owner disease] If you have over 80,000 miles on the car and have never changed the fluid and filter, that might be the cause of the problem. The fluid breaks down and causes "gum" deposits to build up in the valve body. These deposits cause the valves to "stick". If this is the case [fluid will be dark red, gray or straw colored, but not smell bad] you might be able to fix your problem by flushing ALL the old fluid out, changing the oil transmission oil filter and cleaning the oil pan and the magnet inside the pan.
Forget those "quick oil change" places that "claim" they can change the fluid by inserting a suction probe down the dip stick tube. That is a half a$$ solution. You need to drop the oil pan, clean it, change the oil filter [accessible once the pan is removed] and fill the system with clean ATF. You are NOT done yet. You still have about 5 or 6 quarts of badly contaminated ATF left in the torque converter and the oil cooler. To remove that fluid you need to remove one of the two rubber hoses which connects the oil cooler [part of the radiator] to the transmission. Attach rubber hoses to both ends of the disconnected hose and the fitting on the radiator [because you don't know which way the ATF will flow] Place both free ends in a 5 gallon bucket.
Have additional ATF ready [generally you will need an entire case of ATF for the whole job]. Have an assistant start the car's engine. That nasty, dirty fluid from the torque converter will now flow out of the free ends of the rubber hoses [1 of them] into the bucket. Pour more ATF into the dip stick tube as the engine runs. Monitor the color of the ATF going into the bucket. When it starts to come out clean [just like the new fluid] shut the engine off. Re-attach the cooler hose. Start the engine and add fluid as needed to bring it up to the proper level. Now road test the car. After the road test, double check the fluid level [it will go down, due to air pockets in the trans] and re-fill to the proper level.

Ford festiva transmission


You have a manual transmission. The synchronizers are bad. Probably a couple of bad bearings also. Get a manual and buy the parts. Save yourself atleast a $1000 labor from a garage.

2000 ford ranger pulls in reverse but not in drive, whats the problem?


When you say "pull" I assume you mean it wont go foward..
1st thing -check the trani fluid while the engine is running in park..
The tranies in these trucks are known to give out.. Reverse is usually run on the 3rd gear band.. It could mean that the band for 1st gear is damaged.. Could also be a vacume & or modulator issue.. Some trani shops give free estimates..
