Well. .I took my 2012 Ford focus se in Wednesday. Had an email from the dealership that the parts that were on backorder until the end of June were in. .. early. What's in the report states this. .. fluid leak from input shaft seal causing clutch slippage...so they changed the clutch assembly the inner and outer input shaft seals ... plus all other fluids involved around there. ... so. . We shall see. Its like this. . You want to believe it's fixed.. but is it really?? It seemed to easy. ..Time will tell. . Keep you all posted!
All shook up. . For a smoother drive!

Well, that's good news, But I lost all faith in that gearbox. They are supposed to be upgraded seals. but I seen the same old ones being installed in mine.
If this don't work, As in some cases it don't. Unfortunately,
good luck to you. .Let us know how it turns out.
If it isn't corrected after that, You have no choice but to rid of it.
I hope you don't got to do that, I did. I had too. I was in a bad spot . no car and need transportation bad. Maybe im paranoid but I don't trust them dct . What were they thinking? yes Im deeper in debt, but I don't have this stress no more.

#676 of 833 2001 1.6 SE transmission problems.
May 30, 2013 (7:23 am)
I have a 2001 Ford Focus 1.6 petrol with auto-trans and, i get transmission error codes:
P0761, P0732, P0734 when I scanned the first time after having several dash board warning about the transmission.
The transmission is slipping for 1st to 2nd then from 2nd to 3rd but hesitate to 4h then down-shift to 3rd and sometimes not upshift to 4th gear at all and the lignt goes on on the dash-board at this time or when I drive at 40 KM/H and stop pushing on the gas pedal!....*
The lasr error code reading is P0734 only?
What is the problem and what can I do to fixe it?
Thank in advance for your help.

I have a ford focus 2012 se with 13000 miles on it. I was just wondering if anyone is having the same problem that I had today. I was driving and it the car just shut off and would not restart. Also the time and date are two days behind and six hours off for the time. THanks

Hi everyone. . Well since I got my car back. .2012 Ford focus se with close to 9k miles on it .. it was in for the tranny noise ...slipping and shuddering for those who didn't see my previous posts. It has been running beautifully! I still remain skeptical though. ..I have the fear that it might come back. . But that's the way i am. A skeptic! I do want tobbelieve that it's fixed for good and will have no more worries! I'm still annoyed that a brand new car had these types of issues but that can happen with anything! I'll keep checking in and reading updates! In case anyone was wondering it's been about 2 weeks now. ...
Smooth driving ahead!
