Question about 2008 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Accelerates on own

My 58 reg Ford FIESTA (not listed as an option on drop down menu)! 1.4 Zetec sometimes accelerates on its own in low gear when I first start driving; also, have never been happy with gear change from first to second-can grate-could problems be connected? I have noticed the problem more in hot weather. Experience with intermittant faults on Fords not good as they just refuse to admit they're happening, but as this car is under warranty I have to use them so would appreciate some advice to back me up!

I would have them check to see if a minor clutch adjustment may remove the 1-2 grate. You might ask it the is a shift linkage lubricant to smooth out the shift as well.

My 98 GMC Jimmy accelerates really slowly but once past 40km/h it takes off fine and handles dropping gears going up hills fine. What would it be? Would it be my torque converter?


Sounds like theres no 1st gear. Have you put the shifter in 1 and seen if it went, if so try 2-3 if it still accelerates slowly its probally stuck in 1st or 2nd gear, when it goes in to the 3 rd gear it will accelerate normally, also in 4th (OverDrive)
