Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
Made a few noises when I was driving, but didn't ****, and then once i stopped and tried to reverse it reved up but won't move. went into d once or twice and now has stopped even doing that
Automatic transmissions can break down over time. my focus had its transmission replaced once about 3 years ago and at that time my boss owned it and had it replaced for at least 4 digits 2000-3000$.
Manual transmissions last a bit longer[ not much ] and are lighter an easy to repair, but a shop will charge the same for the parts.
automatic are heavy and a little more complex
if you have a friend who is good with cars im sure you can save a lot more money
but make sure you have transmission fluid. look for a yellow cap [ sometimes its different colors] that should be to the right or left mid section and remove the cap and make sure its the transmission fluid cap and check to see if its low. try refilling but check for leaking so you dont waste it
your trans might be leaking so check to see if a red fluid it dripping from under your car, that may be the problem and the transmission may need to be replaced

If it's a standard, you may need a new clutch. If it's an automatic, you may need new clutch plates. They wear out over time. I had an old Saturn with an automatic tranny, and when I would shift into reverse it wouldn't go into gear unless I revved it a bit, then it would clunk and drop into gear.. Not very healthy for the car, your tranny may need a rebuild.. Hope your piggy bank is full.
