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.

Need to replace a wheel speed sensor in my 2000 ford focus on the back passenger side


There's a single set screw holding the sensor on the side.
Disconnect the electrical plug first.
Caution: With the sensor out, transmission fluid will leak out. Either drain the transmission fluid before or use a preselected hole plug.
Remove the set screw. Gently pull out the sensor from the transmission.

2001 Ford Focus. What is the speed sensor's function?


If you are talking about the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) , it relays to the ECM (Electronic Control Module) what the vehicle speed is so that it can manage fuel mixture and transmission shift points as well as ignition timing. On some vehicles it also is used for the ABS system and for the cruise control and to make speedometer readings.

2003 ford focus... possible transmission problem.. or electrical?


Overdrive is a lock up within the transmission. The other "gears" are fluid and belt driven. So, could be that the sensor that allows the overdrive to "lock" is dirty/faulty. A transmission shop should be able to tell you in a heart beat.

Cant find 2002 ford focus speed sensor


I had a 2001 and the transmission was not shifting correctly that was diagnosed as a speed sensor issue.

There is a speed sensor on the transmission, near the rear.

And there is a speed sensor on one of the front wheel hubs...

Tell me what the problem is?

Problem with speedometer for ford focus tdci reg03


This is caused by the little circuit board that runs the speedo or a Vehicle Speed Sensor problem, have any Kragen auto or Auto Zone run a trouble code test to see if a VSS trouble code is present in the memory, if nothing shows replace the speedometer or have it repaired, if there is a code for the VSS replace the sensor on the transmission.
