2000 Ford Focus SE Wagon, Z-Tec engine. Automatic transmission
Started noticing a little slipping in the tranny in this car. Also car
would shudder a little when pulling off from a stop. Problem was worse
after warming up. transmission fluid level was good.
Took it to the dealer today. They ended up replacing the spark plugs and
the ignition coil pack. Total repair USD 340.
Dealer says the coil was so weak it was not firing the ignition
properly. It runs well now after repair. Dealer said they don't see
many transmission problems in these cars.
All the best,
