It could be one of two things.

1- it could be an adaptation problem , you will need that done by a proffessional to check the exact problem with the right tool and see if any adaptation is needed.

2- it could be a clutch problem , unlikely but possible

When checked with the proper tool you should be able to know

2010 ford focus automatic trsnsmission makes rubbing noise when accelerating from acomplete stop . noise continues until 2nd gear engages. from then on all is fine. reverse sometimes doesnt engage, ma


A carrier bearing usually pertains to the differential assembly and would not cause the symptom you describe. There is a problem with this transmission that causes it to not drop completely to first gear after a period of driving. Ford is aware of it but I do not believe they have initiated a recall. Call your Ford dealer(s) to see if you can find an honest man. Ask for the service manager.

Hi Steve. Your foot has to be firmly (pressure )on the break to engage reverse gear. It won't go into reverse gear doing so.Hope this helps.

My 2004 mustang is shifting hard into rev. and 5th sometimes it seems to not go into n. what could the problem


your tranny synchronizing bearings are going out most likely. usually it starts getting hard going into reverse then sometimes into fifth and grinds as it gets worse. something to help with it will be when you first start the car just put the car in 5th gear before you go into reverse that allowsyour bearing to align and ussually allows it to go in more freely.

Hard to get into reverse


try shifting in to first and then reverse. reverse might be worn out. you can have that gear replaced without replacing the whole transmission.

0.transmission takes a minute or 2 before reversr gear engages


The anti-drain-back valve in your torque converter has gone bad. The torque converter drains into the tranny when you shut down, and you have to wait until the pump refills it before it can work.

The pump does NOT fill the converter in park, only in one of the gear positions, or neutral. Start it up in NEUTRAL, wait a minute, and drive off.

Reverse gear


it could be that reverse gear has been partially stripped. when we talk gears we are literally talking of mechanical gears. sometimes teeth break off from normal wear and tear, after so many break off the gear has trouble engaging. you will either have to have the transmission rebuilt or have new one installed, hope its under warranty this kind of work can be costly. Most likely this is the problem. If your car is standard transmission it could be your clutch is having trouble engaging, but this would also affect forward gears so it is most likely your reverse gear is missing teeth
