Hey, Sorry to hear your both having the same problem. I been having the same problem but after doing some research I came across some info. Apparently the speed control sensor found at the bottom of the gear box is faulty. It's a common fault. My cuz also had the same problem and he changed the control sensor and it seemed to have worked. The sensor doesn't cost much either. Something like 20-30. I still need to get mine done but thought i'd share what i know with y'all. B)

Yes, it is the speed control sensor, 26 inc vat from ford. When it stops working the senor tell the engine management you are not moving, although you are, and it reduces your power, so you end up a bit sluggish, For replacement leave it to your garage, as the car needs to be up in the air, its located at the back of the gearbox. Its a swine to remove as there is a pin that doesnt want to come out...deffo not a roadside repair. My local garage charged me 10 to replace it.

Thanks for that.

It felt like some sort of Lube. It seemed like a reasonable amount. I wiped it up now and will see if it happens on the way home.

Hi, up above your foot pedal, there are 2 valves, one of these valves will be leaking, cant remember if it brake or clutch fluid, we had to buy a new part and it cost us about 60. get it done quickly, as the fluid will get into your carpets.

In Topic: Clutch pedal leak?

I have just got a 2003 Ford Focus 1.8 TDI Zetec Estate and I have fluid seeping from the cylinder connected to the clutch pedal.

Can anyone tell me what it is and how much it will cost to sort out?


Hi, I had this problem on my 2002 petrol, all the footwell carpets were covered in the stuff.....a new part cost, if I remember correctly about 60 from ford.
