How can i adjust the gear linkeage on my 2000 ford focus it is hard to select reverse gear occasionally.5 speed manual


You may want to grease the fork sliders on the top plate. Check the nylon thickness on the forks for excessive wear. Check for excessive shaft end play between the gears and the case. Make sure the detentes on the fork sliders fully engage. The shift linkage arms have bushings so make sure there isn't excessive wear on the reverse arm .

My 5 speed wont go into gear... all the shifting cables are new and working properly but it still will not go into gear


If what your saying is correct & the clutch
is in fact releasing,then the transaxle has
to come out and be disassembled and
gone through to find the problem
Not Cheap. Figure about $1500 .00 min

Hard shifting, revving of the engine, trouble


Your going to need a scanner hooked up to look at data. There is no other way without guessing.

06 ford focus 5spd. no 1st, 3rd, or 5th gear.


It sound like the gear linkage isn,t set up right, you wouldn,t always be able to engage a gear unless you rocked the car.
