A faulty vss should trigger your service light, but not always. You'll have to check the sensor which should be located close to the front brakes as the sensor and the wires are all exposed. The other sensor would be on the side of your transmission

    You never mentioned your check engine light was on. Have it scanned at Autozone (free) and they'll give you a code or codes that will pinpoint the issue

If you replace the sensor all you have done is replace a part that was damaged by water intrusion, which likely means it will be damaged as well. You need to find out if it did get wet, and if so remedy the problem. You might very well need a new VSS, but replacing it without repairing the cause will just lead to another failure.

Antifreeze Leak


First check all hoses and connections if these are leaking there should be a tell tale mark a bit like salt deposits. Also check round the engine as there could be a corroded core plug. Also, inspect the rad for possible leaks. another possibility is the water pump seal gone

Ford focus, 2000 zx3 code p0455


your engine code means "big leak" in the evap control system, this system has alot of pieces, but you are looking for a vacuum leak most probably, look at your vacuum hoses, and refer to the vacuum diagram stuck under your hood for routing, see if you have a bad hose, or disconnected hose some where. these are small vacuum hoses that attach to the purge valve, air filter housing, and charcoal cannister. let me know what you find.

After changing the oil on a ford focuc 1.8 tddi the oil pressure light flickers on and off when im driving but the oil level is fine


I had a 2000 Focus ZX3 and Mine did the same thing. All I had to do is tighten the oil filter down pretty tight and It went away. Hopefully you get the same result.
