I have and 2003 ford focus lx with 99850miles, just recently my car started jerking on me, 1st and 2nd shift is good but when i goes into 3rd it feels like the car is on neutral, my neighbor scanned my car and the code P0750 Bad function of Shift Solenoid A, had called the ford dealership and they dont go by those codes and want to charge me $100 just for a scan. But the problem is I cant find a Shift Solenoid A anywhere in which is also know as a Shift Control Solenoid, Ive been calling places and they said they have to order the part from Ford but ford is selling it for $171, I live in SW Florida can anyone help me locate this solenoid I dont have the money to pay 171. Thank you

Stay calm focus87.
Search back in this thread, there are many helpful posts, use the search feature to find exactly what you need.
If yours scanned 0750 you need an "A" solenoid.
It costs about $48 at the Ford parts counter. Don't let them BS you.
Follow the many here who have had the same issue.
One of these posts has the Ford part # for the solenoid as well.
Check posts #76 & #110 for more info.

The ford Part number is XS4Z-7H148-AA. SOLENOID ASY $46.67 IS WHAT I PAID FOR IT. Unfortunately it did not work for me I need a new trans. Hope it works for you.
#320 of 672 Focus Transmission Problems
Jun 21, 2010 (10:15 am)
My problem started with a 1996 Ford Contour-transmission problems-dealer I bought the car from said they took it to FORD,(later found out they didn't) Ended up with a 2002 Focus. It has been sitting for 5 yrs with transmission problems. Finally in April got a mechanic to put in an aftermarket(from a popular company) Same problem. Shifting from drive to 2nd it jerks. Now 4 transmissions later I am still having the same problem. Another mechanic told me to google transmissions and here I am. I am on disability, have put over $2000 into my car in the last month, otherwise the car is in great shape. This new mechanic told me it is the solinodes(msp).
My dad was a master mechanic. I know how to change oil, spark plugs, brakes, just not transmissions. He is no longer with us. Can anyone help with suggestions. Called FORD and they said that I can't rely on what is on the web

I own a 2002 ford focus and once again having problems with the transmission. A few yers ago i had to have a censer replaced in it cause it would only go 30miles ph. Now my problem is that before the transmission warms up, i can drive it forward and then in reverse,but as soon as it's warm it stops. the replacement of a transmission is costly and hoping it might be another censer. Please help!

Ok~! I called Auto Zone to rent this scanning machine to see what is wrong with my car and to see what code i need. They told me as long as my engine light isn't on it won't scan. So i go out to make sure the engine light still pops up when i start my car and just my luck it won't. Any other ideas! Please help!
