I am having problems shifting gears

While the car is off, I can switch between gears, but once the car is running it becomes very difficult to get into gear. The clutch seems very soft.

Shifter hard to move thru gears cables are good and free when disconnected hear squeak when shifting

first i would contact ford dealershift to see if any recalls with this problem...The transmission on the 2002 Ford Focus has been having problems shifting gears,The linkage inside the transmission suffers from premature wear, causing difficulty in switching or shifting gears. The transmission bands that wrap around each gear to hold the gears in place are becoming loose, causing the gears to shift harshly. Both problems have been the biggest culprit when the Ford Focus transmission experiences problems shifting gears. The only correction for this shifting problems is to have the transmission replaced or rebuilt.

It has become difficult to shift the gears. They will shift but it takes a lot of effort.

If all the gears behave this way (with the reverse one making a lot of noise) then the clutch is no longer fully disengaging the gearbox - it will have to have its pressure plate replaced and readjusted.

After running for some time, the clutch becomes gradually harder and shifting gears becomes difficult and often sets after a loud crank noise.

Hi probely the clutch pressure plate is ready for replacing or the clutch arm is seizing onto the shaft have a garage to have a look on a ramp when the car is warm with the problem available to see and try for them self's.

Hope this helps.

hi it sounds like your clutch is on its way out thats why when the engine switch off its easy for the gear to go in but when the engine is running the flywheel is turning and makes if very difficult or sometimes impossible to engage the gear as the clutch is worn and wont disengage .

88 Toyota Pickup, has become difficult to shift in to gear. Once in gear (1,2,3,or4th) very smooth. I believe must be something up front in the clutch linkage. Possibly? Can get into, but takes awful...

if your linkage was bent it wouldnt shift into all gears easily.sounds like you need to blead your slave cylinder to your clutch.10mm wrench and bleed it like your brakes same type set up.

Hard to Get into Gear?

Either your clutch is not fully dis-engaging or the transmission synchros are worn. Check the clutch master cylinder for level and check system for any leaks if it is a bit low.

At the rear of the shifter lever on the column you find 2 screws. These screws had worked themselves loose causing the shifter to become loose and sloppy.
