Question about 2005 Ford Focus

Open Question

Focus powertrain p0001 fault

When accelerating near 3000 revs, in third and 4th gears the powertrain malfunction indicator light comes on. Not every time. The car seem to drive on normally but has been sluggish sometimes and can feel rough to drive. Mpg is usually around 40- 50 which is pretty much expected for what I use the car for getting to work and back 6 miles away and some longer journeys. The powertrain light resets when ignition is off and I only managed to get this code from buying a reader off Amazon and self diagnosing because the fault is never active unless the light is on

SOURCE: Car rides rough when accelerating

The throttle position sensor could be kaput.
On the other hand you might begin by cleaning the throttle.It may be sticking. Locate where the throttle cable goes to the intake and use an appropriate spray cleaner to clean the throttle.

clunking from the tranny has nothing to do with the tps or anything even close to it. you may end up needing a new transmission. my friend has the same car as you and apparently they are notorious for having terrible transmissions.
do a vaccuum test to diagnose the revving properly

SOURCE: Ford Fusion 04 Engine Management Light

I had a 2002 model 1.4 Fiesta, same problem Engine management light or ECA, electronic accelaration Control (EAC), it needs a ford dealer to do a computer diagnostic, most likely that it will need replaced.

Mt friend who is a mechanic for ford said that it was a common factory fault and is very common in 1.4 zetec /duratec petrol models.

I now have a 2007 Fusion and was quick to see if this problem had been sorted on this model, and it has!!

Hope this helps!!

I have a ford focus 2008 sedan automatic. I get a transmission malfunction message.


Diagnostic Procedure Before Repair
Step 1 - Clear all DTC's with a engine scan tool (diagnostic trouble codes.) Visit - Scan PCM
Step 2 - Start the engine and observe the MIL, if it does not illuminate continue to next step (service engine soon or check engine light.)
Step 3 - Drive the vehicle while trying to maintain a constant throttle position as it accelerates up through all four gears. If the transmission is shifting properly, it should be in 4th gear by the time you reach 45 to 50 mph on level ground. Repeat this procedure from a standing start 3 to 5 times. Rescan the PCM for trouble codes, if none appear the problem could have been a onetime occurrence. If a trouble code has returned repair as needed and recheck system. Hope This Helps !!!

2006 wrench light is on


Powertrain Malfunction (Wrench) Warning Indicator (base instrument cluster)
The instrument cluster receives the powertrain status from the PCM over the high speed CAN. When a powertrain system concern is detected, the PCM sends the instrument cluster a command signal to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. If the 4WD control module detects a failure with the 4WD drive system, the 4WD control module sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. On 4.6L engines, if the transmission control module (TCM) detects a failure with the transmission, the TCM sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator.
better have it checked !

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

You have internal transmission damage I expect the clutches on third and fourth gear are wiped out. Its either that or a solenoid gone bad that holds those clutches pressure get it in a transmission shop soon to avoid whole transmission replacement costs.

sounds like 3rd gear/clutch is worn.I don't think a service will do any good.But if you remove the pan and find debris you know you will need a trans in the near future.

U have an ignition related problem, have the system tested for the trouble code that is stored in memory any time the check engine light comes on to determine what is causing this issue. check engine lights have nothing to do with oil level or pressure, they indicate electronic control problems with the engine, trans or emission system.

Engine Idle Problem - Intermittant


I've just had the same thing on my Elantra 2001. I took it to the dealership and they fixed it easily; it was a malfunctioning 'Throttle Position Sensor'. They fixed the faulty connection but they said a new one would have cost about 175GBP (275USD) fitted. Hope this helps.
