Ijust had parts replaced because my 2003 ford focus ideled way to high and drove way to fast now my transmission jerks me when driving does that have anything to do with it


Transmission can suddenly 'grab' when it/you changes gear. An automatic transmission can be sluggish to change gear if the fluid is dirty and needs changing. A worn/slipping clutch on a manual transmission causes the engine to rev high before the car picks up speed.

From your description it sounds as though there's a misfire or rough running with the engine which causes the jerking, not the transmission unit.

There's many things that can cause the symptoms you describe - the MAF sensor .. fuel starvation .. O2 sensor ..

Get a good mobile mechanic to look at your car - or take it to a workshop. I don't think it's your transmission at fault.

Why does my car make a jerking motion while in drive?


It sounds like a misfire, My suggestion is that you change the spark plugs and wires first. Then if it continues look for a vaccum hose that has come detached.

04 focus jerks when I put. On reverse why?


Check your two engine mountings and the pitch control bar underneath. The right hand, oil filled mount has a tendency to collapse. The left mount is a solid rubber mount which can be checked from the underside, using a torch.

2003 Ford Focus won't go into reverse


You can check the fluid level of a transmission only while the motor is running while in park or neutral (wheels blocked). Remove the rear dip stick (transmission) and wipe it with a rag, reinsert it completely. Repeat the procedure and note the level, which should be between or in the hash marks (towards the end of dip stick) and add accordingly.
If the level is okay you will have to check with transmission shops and the Ford dealer for quotes ( and check on Google ). The problem you have is either a transmission or computer problem.

Anyone have a problem with their 2003 Ford Focus jerking, even while car is idling


Maybe a bad coil. Mine did this for about a month. It would skip but not all the time. It had weak spark on one side of coil and had small cracks on the coil. You should also check the rubber hose that goes to the pcv from the intake manifold as they will collapse and leak.

Ford Focus Engine Light


Start by getting either a mechanic or someone with an OBDII scanner to read the code so you know where to start. Lots of time a loose gas cap will cause a "Evap system small leak" code which illuminates the check engine light for a while. Other than that I can't help you much without knowing what code comes up.
