When driving for several miles, automatic transmission clunks into first gear after stop. Only happens afterseveral stop and goes, usually after 6 to 10 miles. Had mechanic check out and they said there was no problem but had them do full transmission service anyway. Stopped for short time but now is back.

Go back to the mechanic and ask them to check the throttle position sensor and to connect a scanner to car computer, to check if it returns any error code related to this problem.

My ford escort quit moving in the middle of an intersection. Engine was still running, but car quit. I hgeard a "clunk" as I was turning. what could have happened?


Most likely one of the CV [constant velocity] universal joints on one of the drive shafts broke.
If it is an automatic transmission, something in the transmission may have broken; but automatic transmissions usually give other symptoms like slipping before actually breaking with a clunk.
If it is a manual transmission, it could be the clutch or the transmission that went clunk.

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.

Gear shift is locked. we can only shift the car


The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp mode now.

You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.

The bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.

after 100,000 miles you have wear in the transmission and rear end gears and bearings, it is not normal but it is not a real problem that can cause a breakdown, to fix this you could spend upwards of $3000.00, so in my opinion just live with it.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.
