I've read through all the posts and sadly I have the same transmission issue. 64K mileage. I pulled the code and got P0772. I have no Reverse, 3rd or 4th gear. I'm going to try #76 however, I'm nervous #76 fix will not address the reverse gear issue. Plus, my code is a little different. P0772 is a Solenoid E stuck on. Does this mean that I should purchase Solenoid E in addition to Solenoid A? Or, should I just purchase Solenoid A? I've already purchased the Mercon V ATF and the filter kit from Advance Auto. I have to wait until Ford opens on Monday to get the solenoid(s). I haven't dropped the pan yet so I don't know the condition of the solenoids or the wiring harness. I'm considering dropping the pan tomorrow to drain the TF and replace the filter. This way, I can inspect all the solenoids to see what I'm up against.
Any advise on the reverse gear?
#178 of 670 Where is the "E" solenoid?

This is a bit newer than most of teh models we see here, but you are heading in the right direction.
If the computer is telling you solenoid "E", then only replace "E".
As far as inspecting the solenoids.... I don't know what you would be looking for or at but it shouldn't hurt anything. Just make sure the wires are on.
I cannot remember as to how the solenoids are labeled, but I will do a search here if I can stay awake. The "A" has the white wire, thats all I know now, not much help I guess.

4F27E is the transmission model used in the 2006 Focus FX4 model but the FN4A-EL is suppose to be the Madza sister model. It appears that the solenoids are in different locations between the two. I'm looking for the 4F27E model diagram. I dropped the pan and all the solenoids looks good and the wire connections were tight.

#183 of 670 Soleniod E stuck on

I can't determine which solenoid is E. However, looking at all solenoids, they all look closed. What's the best way to remove the solenoid? I've removed the plate that holds them in place but was wondering if they should just pull out or do I need a tool to remove them?

Does anyone know the best way to remove Solenoid E? Do I need to remove the control value in order to remove it?
#186 of 670 Second transmission problem for my 2007 Focus
Jul 21, 2009 (9:03 pm)
I have a 2007 ford focus with 48,000 miles that we bought about four months ago. As my wife and I were on our way to play a game of golf which is 70 miles away, the car started to miss gears and rev up high with no gear then clunk into a lower gear. The overdrive off light came on and then the engine light too. We were near the dealership that we bought the car from and so we drove it to the dealership to have them work on it. This happened on July 10th. Today (July 21st) I called Ford and they said the car was repaired and ready. We went to pick up the car but I had to press them on the fact that the car was still under warranty for the powertrain for 5 years or 60,000 miles and that ford actually raised that higher about a year ago. They finally agreed to the fact that the car was still under warranty. The cost would have been $280 for a replaced solenoid. After we picked up the focus we drove to a Home Depot that was about 15 miles further down the road in the opposite direction of our residence. The car ran fine but then when we came back the car started its transmission problems again but this time the over drive off light never came on. This time it had a miss after it was in 2nd gear searching for 3rd gear it would rev and clunk hard. After stopping and starting at another a stop light it happened again. So we took it back to the dealership but they were closed. We left the car with a message, put the keys in the drop box and asked them to really fix it this time. After reading all the horror stories about the numerous Focus transmission problems on this site I am just happy to have the warranty to cover the costs. I had a feeling that this is far from over while I was driving to pick the car up. I told my wife that selling this car was prioity one after we get it back. I feel sorry for those who only have the one car for meeting thier transportation needs. This car was supposed to be for my daughter for college but she never got her license and we have two other cars for our transportation needs. I will post again when I talk with Ford and the second repair session to the transmission. I truly appreciate the information that has been posted on this site so I thought I needed to share my story for others too.
