Question about 2001 Ford Focus
I have a Ford focus estate 1.6 zetec engine. The problem happens intermittently whilst driving. Can you tell me the exact location of the speedo sensor and give any help on how best to change it. Thank you
It is most likely the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) It is located on top of the gearbox. I changed mine - it was a pain....It depends on how tight it sits. There is a pin securing it. I would let ford do the job....
If you decide to do it yourself prepare it with rust loosener - (WD40 is not good - it is a lubricant and not a rust loosener) several times in the days before the "operation". When you remove the old VSS take som fine sandpaper (grinding paper?) and use it in the hole where you fit the VSS. This makes it easier to pop it in.
It can also be the little wire that runs where the sparkplugs are located (Dont know the word for the location) The wire must be insulated so that sparks cant jump from sparkplugs to the wire.

Speed sensor would usually cause hesitation aswell,could be the start of your clocks failing,you can get it plugged in to check this as it does have its own fault memory.
