    Is there anyplace you can get to the oil in the tranny and put some on your finger and smell the oil to see if it is burnt?

If it's what I think it is...the same use to happen to me with the car you see posted here. The gear box sometimes gets stuck in two gears at once causing the problem you describe. I had to get under vehicle and shift one of the gears on tranny itself to an other position to unlock. I think this was happening to me because I would take shortcuts in shifting like going from 2nd to 4th. Hope this helps you out.

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.

When stopped gears sometime grind when shifting into 1st gear(2001 Ford Focus)


Then the clutch is not releasing properly & the continual
grinding will wear the gear teeth & you may also have worn
syncros, that will require you to pull the trans & go thru it, as well
as do a clutch replacement

I have a 2003 LR Ford Focus Manual 1.8. While driving and changing gears, I lost all gears the car is is neutral with no feeling of selecting any gears.


sounds like your shifter cable came off at the transmission or the cable is broke.You hould be able to see the cable on top of the trans. Have some try to shift while you see if the cable moves.

Sounds like air has gotten into the hydraulic clutch system, or it is low on fluid from a failed master or slave hydraulic clutch cylinder or connecting line between the master and slave cylinders.
