I have a 2000 focus SE auto... and I have a 'funny' shifting
characteristic I was wondering whether it was standard or if perhaps
it's forecasting a future problem.
The best example is in traffic. If you're accelerating away from a
stop, and the traffic infront of you is suddenly stopping, if the car
is close to shifting from 1st to 2nd, and you lift off the gas
(because, obviously, you now have to slow down), the ford tranny will
feel like it will disengage and 'hang' for just a second or 2 before
it'll select a gear.
I noticed on my highway trip this weekend, that maybe 1x each way, the
tranny would go to shift on a long uphill, and it'll feel like it's a
bit "indescisive" as it's shifting from 4 to 3, for example.
There's no noises or anything, and this may be just how THIS tranny is
with the weak little ford engine... but I wanted to touch base with
