Question about 2004 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Sticky clutch Ford Focus C-Max 5dr Hatch, Clutch not clearing quickly. Start engine, dip clutch, pause and engage reverse. gears clash, fading gently to silence.... engage and drive off normally, no sign of slipping. On move, low rev changes easily done, but more energetic accelleration causes sticky changes, mainly 2nd to 3rd. 'Pumping' of clutch pedal makes no difference.

2004 ford focus will not go in gear manual transmission


with engine shut OFF, try putting it in any gear. While leaving it in a gear, press the clutch all the way and turn the key to start ( do NOT hold key to start, but just for a moment). If the car jerks forward while starter is engaged, you have a clutch problem. If the engine turns over freely, you have a shifting linkage issue.

Do you mean you can't get the clutch to DISengage? You need the clutch to disengage - 'unlock' the transmission input shaft from the flywheel - in order to change gears.
If you put the transmission in 1st gear and start the engine and the truck starts moving with the pedal depressed, the clutch IS engaged. I think you mean that you can't get it to disengage so you can stop without killing the engine, and can change gears without a lot of grinding.
If this is the case, check to see that the clutch cable or linkage (if you have mechanical linkage) is properly adjusted, or that you hydraulic lines and slave cylinder are bled if you have a hydraulically controlled clutch.

Not sure if shifter is installed properly


Ok, I guess its going to be a not too obvious solution then. All we have to do is find it...
1.What type of gear shifter is in your truck. Column or tower
2. Is the tail shaft turning when you try to move the vehicle
3. Does the vehicle try to move at all
4. Is there any noise from the gearbox or clutch area
5. Are you certain the clutch kit was the right one
6. Did you try the clutch plate on the gearbox input shaft spline
7. Is the release bearing clear of the pressure plate fingers.
8. Does the release bearing carrier slide freely on the retainer on the front of the bearbox, and did you apply lubricant here.
