Just wondering if anyone has come across this 'problem'.
Have a 2003 Focus 1.6 Ghia Automatic, with 60,263 on the clock, and have NEVER had a pick of bother with it in over 4 years of ownership, however, in the last few weeks I have noticed that when it is changing gear from 1-2,, or 2-3 there is a sort of pause/delay before it engages with a jolt; It has always been a relatively smooth transition before. I am not getting any warning symbols on the dash, the fluid levels is normal and in a clear state with no peculiar smell.
I'm no mechanic so am I looking at something expensive? Is this to do with the timing belt being due to be replaced?
All helpful advice gratefully appreciated.
