The speed sensor would be a likely suspect.
It takes the place of the speedo cable going from the transmission to the speedometer.

You need another instument cluster,the thing with all the gauges. New is pretty pricey but have had good luck with them from a local salvage yard.

2000 Ford Focus. Transmission won't upshift unless I let up on the gas pedal. It will shift if I'm accelerating easy, but under a heavier load it won't. - Catalytic Converter isn't blocked...


it sound like it could be a vacuum problem. I have experienced this on cars i have worked on it usually turns out to be a vacuum problem 90 percent of the time.

My tranny is slow shifting and the s light is blinking


The "S" light flashing means the speed sensor went out. Is an easy fix. I got mine for less than $40 and it was not hard to install. As for the gears going in too slow, I dont know. Good luck.
