Sounds like a bad shift solenoid. You need to have a shop read codes in the transmission control module. Before you go that route, make sure the trans fluid is at the full mark on the dipstick and that you have kept the fluid clean by changing it regularly. If it's been 30K miles or more since you've changed it, I would start there first.

The Pacifica will not shift past 4th gear. It shifts normally through 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear. Their is no high reeving RPS, no clunking, no lurching. It will just not shift past 4th gear.

is there an OD button that might have been pressed .if it has lots of miles on it it could be needing a flush job . last one I got done was around 100.00 at jiffy lube.

My Ford focus will shift into 1 gear when it is in second gear the car just reeves up and don't go anywhere

If you have been driving it like that, with it revving (slipping)
you pretty much ruined any change of a solution, other than
to pull the trans & rebuild it

How old is it?
Has the fluid been changed every 3 years since new?
How long has it come out of gear,slipped,etc?
How many miles on the transaxle?

Stop using it now & have it diagnosed
or be prepared to spend $3,500

97 nissan 200sx 2.0, starts but stalls when I shift to forward. Also when in park and reeve the engine up it misses badly. Took distributor cap off and there was oil inside. Other times I can start it...

There should be no oil in the distributor. Replace it. Oil will cause the spark to go anywhere. Most likely to a ground. The distributor base.

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.

I have computer codes p0320 and po750 on my 2002 ZX5 focus can any one help me on what the mean

p0320 is Ignition/Distributor Engine Speed Input Circuit Malfunction which could mean that the rpm(revolution per minute) sensor is bad or there is something wrong with the wiring.
p0750 is Shift Solenoid A Malfunction which means your solenoid that shifts your transmission into a lower or higher gear is no good. i would have it checked out by a mechanic. hope this helps
