Park it.
Most likely the trans is in need of being rebuilt.
Most people never change trans fluid, and you end up with what you have.
Changing fluid now, won't repair anything,so forget that.
Don't install a used trans either,that's some elses bad trans, like yours.

My 2000 ford focus does good, til i change into 2nd gear, then from 2nd through 5th gears, it jerks and barely runs. and when it gets real bad, it causes the clutch to slip, what could be the cause of...


So you can race the engine in neutral, and no problem with it trying to die? If that's so, I think you need a clutch job. A clutch disc contaminated with oil or grease will cause jerking and slipping.

1994 Ford Escort jerks into 2nd gear.


Make sure you're replacing your transmission oil about every 30,000 miles, or as directed in your owners manual service section.
If your gears are slipping, it could be as simple as low fluid or old fluid no longer providing the correct lubrication between your gears.
The issue could also be that your gears have worn down and the metal parts aren't fitting together correctly anymore. This will cause a jump in gear shifting and can only be remedied by rebuilding the shaved down gears in the transmission. Typically, this issue can be identified by pulling out your transmission dipstick and inspecting for evidence of small metal shavings in the fluid.

Good luck!

I have a 2001 Ford Focus with approximately 71,500 miles. It feels like the transmission is slipping.Recently, I was driving on the interstate and the jerking got really bad at a higher rate of speed....


The first thing you should do is go to your local auto parts dealership that offers free computer diagnostics. They'll be able to read and interpret any codes your computer is posting, and that will pinpoint any engine or transmission problems.
Hopefully you simply need a transmission flush. If your transmission fluid is full of garbage, it could certainly cause the jerking you experienced. However, in case it turns out to be more serious, I would recommend limiting how much you drive the vehicle until you've gotten the problem identified.
If it turns out to be your transmission, compare repairing it to your car's Kelly Blue Book value and see if you think the investment is personally worth it. A new transmission will cost you approximately $2200 - $2800.
Keep in mind that trading in a vehicle with serious transmission problems will get you a significantly less trade-in value. That said, your car is nine years old. The choice is up to you.

This is common problems to the transmission when the fluid is getting to dirty and the transmission fluid and filter needs to be replaced. The transmission fluid and filter should be replaced every 45,000 miles to ensure there is no dirt causing the shift servos from binding. The other thing to is that when the transmission fluid get's to dirty, the fluid gets thicker. It retains fluid retention which can cause conflicts in the transmission sensors. What your experiencing is, your transmission is not shifting back to first gear and sticking in to 2nd gear. When you get on the gas peddle, the transmission sensors realize that it needs to be in 1st gear, so as the engine's RPM goes up and the transmission drops back to 1st, you get the jerking condition which will in turn cause you a $2,300.00 transmission replacement. For now when starting off from a stop, let the engine creep forward on it's own first to ensure that the transmission has shifted in to 1st gear. Then get on the gas peddle lightly till you have the transmission serviced. $100.00 transmission service is better then $2,300.00 transmission replacement. Good luck and do not have a transmission fluid flush, just filter and fluid replacement.

This sounds like your transmission is slipping. When it slips you will lose power when it catches back that's when you get the ****. Hope this helps.

Automatic transmission slips


Quote from Haynes manual for 2000-2005 ford focus:

'Due to the complexity of the automatic transaxle, it is difficult for the home mechanic to properly diagnose and service this component.'

You may have to visit a transmission expert...save up some $$ first.

1994 F350 transmission intermittent problem


I had the same problem in my 96 f-350. The transmission has slipped recording a slip code in the transmission. You can pull the codes and get it. I shifts into a safe mode that increases the pressure inside your transmission as part od a fail safe. Plain and simple, you have to have the tranny rebuilt.
