I got my car back from ford today and on the way home I heard when my car was shifting from second to drive I heard a kinda squeeking sound, I hear it only when going from 2nd to drive, I hear the same sound when shifting manually also. Anyone know what this could be?

thanks,

i hear the sound when coming from a dead stop, not punching the gas either, just driving at a regular pace and letting the car shift itself around 2-3000 somewhere around there. I hear it when i shift it manually at the same rpms also, I dont hear it when i get the rpms up to 5 or so, possibly b/c of my exhaust. what else would help in figuring it out?

That would be your 3rd gear clutches going bad my friend


it starts off as a chirp as 3rd gear engages...

then the 2nd gear will disengage and the revs will surge upwards before 3rd gear engages...

then before you know it... you have no 3rd gear


if you are still under warranty, the dealership should replace your clutches for you. That is an extremely common issue w/ the focus ATX tranny

i have the esp warranty, would this be covered under it. If it is my tranny, my mods shouldnt cause any probs, I talked to the service advisor i usually go to and he said they wouldnt give me any crap over them. how much longer do i have until the car is no longer drivable? guesstimate

Your race header. That voids warranty/law/etc.

abso-freakin-lutely not

magnusson moss warranty law
don't even TRY to let them tell you that your warranty doesn't apply. They'd have hte burden of proving the header caused the malfunciton.
