Question about 2001 Ford Focus

1 Answer

The vehicle i have is a 2001 ford focus. The problem im having is when i took a left hand turn, it seemed to have jumped out of gear, and the speed needle went up. i shifted into neutral, and back into drive, and the speed needle jumped again. After the car came to a stop reverse worked for a few seconds, then stopped. Currently theres no park, reverse, drive, first or second, but it makes a grinding noise when put it park, but theres nothing there. the axles, dont seem to be damaged. any would would be geart.

SOURCE: 1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock

most likely the shift tube bushings are bad- you may have also lost a few screws in the shift tube or they could just be loose. you have to pull the steernig column down to inspect/repair it.

It is a cable behind the steering column. Cheap and easy to replace.

2001 ford focus rear driver side tire wobbles by hand , what could cause it ?

I can not imagine anyone using any vehicle with a wheel
noticeably leaning in or out

You actually, not only drive that way at low speeds, but at
higher speeds -enough said- makes no sense you would risk
your car & your life doing so

Obviously you paid a shop in a sincere effort to resolve some

Here the thing

You can see & feel the wobble by hand,so both you
& any repair shop can see the problem !!

What sort of shop do you use, that gives you a vehicle
back in that condition & why are you here for us to guess
at something, when you should asking the place that took
your money, what's going on, or maybe check with a lawyer

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.

My ford focus is loosing power at roundabouts and kangeroo jumps

Really bad wheel bearings. Does it do it while turning right or left. If it does it turning one way or the other you want to check the opposite side. If you notice the problem while turning right you want to check the left side (drivers side). Jack up the fron left and try to wiggle or move the tire and wheel. There should be no toutward movement, try the same for the back tire. If you notice anything take it to a shop, now you would know whats wrong and what to expect. I've replaced some before it is possible for you to replace them also but its tedious work in some vehicles.
