    Sudden Gearbox Failure. How?!

    Hi, My car is a 1.4 manual petrol 2011 Fiesta with 70,000 miles. I was driving home from work yesterday and was nearly home when I pulled, as I was accelerating and changed from I think 2nd to 3rd gear my car suddenly felt like it was in neutral. No matter how much I revved or which gear I used I just coasted to the side of the road and came to a stop. I restarted the car and tried 1st gear, and a few others but was unable to find a biting point in any gear and even if I completely lifted my foot off the clutch it wouldn't stall in gear. I was towed to the independent garage I usually used and they first said it was likely the clutch. I was surprised as my clutch was fine up to now, no slipping etc and I tend to be kind on the clutch with how I drive anyway (got 140,000 miles out of my last Fiesta's original clutch). I got a call today to say that it wasn't the clutch after all and was the gearbox and it will need to be replaced. I've been quoted £1000 to replace the gearbox with a reconditioned one and have a new clutch fiitted whilst they're doing the gearbox anyway. What I don't understand is how a gearbox can fail so suddenly without any warning signs at all? No grinding when selecting gear and no slipping of the clutch at all to suddenly having a car that has absolutely no power making it's way from the engine to the front wheels. Does this look like a gearbox failure based on what happened and can a gearbox fail so suddenly? Has anyone experienced something similar to this or have any thoughts of how this could have happened? The garage has a reputation for being trustworthy. Any thoughts will be much appreciated! :)
  3. Hi, have a 2006 Smax petrol 2.0 5-speed manual. Gears 1 and 2 are sometimes stiff to engage. Seems not to be temperature related. Compared to an identical smax (and a focus MK2) tried this wasn't like it on that. Seems better if changed in a slow 2-step process (i.e. returning to centre position first). Have oiled the mechanisms under the stick. Anything else to obvious to check/anyone have similar experiences? Thanks.
  4. Hi all i took my car for a test drive today after refitting a gearbox and clutch but it appears my electric windows and heater controls have stopped working. The windows are now stuck half open & making this cold weather feel even colder lmao is it possible that it’s a coincidence with the clutch & gearbox change or just a blown fuse? fiesta mk6 btw
  5. Hi guys, I own a 21013 fiesta 1.0 ecoboost zetec, yesterday evening I was driving and the car just would not go into any gear. I had it towed to a garage and the issue seems to be the clutch. I don't understand how the clutch can be gone with only 52,000 on the clock. Has anyone else had any similar issues? The mechanic is saying that it needs a new bearing and a a new clutch, he's quoted me £390 for the job, does that price seem okay? Also the car is need of a service, he's quoted me £120, does that price seem okay? New clutch, new bearing, new brake pads and service, looking at a £520 bill :/ Thanks, Zak
  6. Good morning everyone, I hope you are well. I have noticed a small knock noise as i switch the car from 1st to 2nd gear. The noise happens almost instantly and before I lift the clutch. It is just a single knock but i happens almost every time. I had a Google around and I have read that a similar noise is normal, but I wondered if anyone else has experienced this or has any thoughts. Thank you in advance.
  7. Hello I`m having an issue with my Ford Galaxy Zetec 2.0 tdci 6 speed manual its a 56 reg new shape The problem is sometimes when i shift in to first gear it goes into reverse instead even thou i did not pull up the ring that allows you to engage into reverse. I have tried removing the trim around the gearbox to see the safety lock out mechanism , and it looks okay and functions well so how am i able to shift in reverse ? anyone who has any ideas please help Thank you
  8. Focus on 56plate

    Gearbox malfunction

    I'm looking for advice. My car is a Ford Focus Zetec 1.6 diesel automatic with the option of manual override on a 56 plate, just over 90K mileage. I recently broke down driving home from a holiday in Somerset. The issue is transmission related, I have little or know drive forward or backwards, if feels and sounds like a slipping clutch. so far I have been unable to get anyone to look at it, cannot drive to the garage, everyone including a Ford local dealership suggests due to age and mileage, scrap the car. I do not believe the car has a transmission dip stick, so no way of checking the transmission fluid. Has anyone else experienced an issue like this and got any advice, the car has been serviced every year since new and up to this point has been an excellent runner. if it has to be sold for scrap or breaking, so be it, but I would hate to discard what I still see as a good car, just! Thank you in advance

  10. Morning.. I own a 2002 Ford Fiesta 1.25, earlier this morning I was moving my car up the side of a street, the engine was warm and I decided to dump the clutch (Silly I know) and when I did so the car span up for a second then a bang and the car shot into neutral. After I got the car safely to the side of the road I looked on the road to find a black piece of plastic about 3 inches long and half an inch wide... The car does now go into gear but it's not easy to find 1st or reverse.. My mechanic friend has but a temporary "fix" with zip ties which popped out after 2/3 gear changes.. The gear stick now sits about 3 inches lower than normal and wobbles about the place... also when the car is in reverse the gear stick will move around a bit before it actually decides to get into gear.. Any help.. Thank you.

    Servicing help!

    Hi all, half way through a full service on my car (ford focus 2005 1.6 manual) so far I have done, oil, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs, ht leads, rocker cover gasket, all brake pads, disks, shoes and drums, new wheel cylinders and brake fluid. I have yet to do the pollen filter (I know how to do that) Does anyone have a guide or photos as to how to do the powersteering fluid & does anyone know the location of the fill and empty bungs on the gear box. Also the location of the fuel filter (if there is one) more photos and videos the better! Thanks everyone.
  13. I need some help figuring out what is cousing the following probem on my mk2 petrol focus: Sometimes when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear, the shifter stucks half way. It doesnt let me put it in the 2nd gear, only at second or third try. No grindig noise can be heard. Any of you encountered this problem? The clutch is in good condition. The car has only 130.000 km. I unmounted the gearshift cover and greased the ables that can be seen there. The interesting is that it only has this problem occasionally, not every time when I shift to 2nd. Somebody told me the cables underneath the car need adjusted. Any advice? Thanx!

    Reverse Gear

    When engaging in reverse gear sometimes it doesnt engage fully and just wirrs, if this happens i put it back to neutral and push it back in sometimes i hear clunk and it engages. all other gears are fine could this be a sign of more problems in the gearbox or could it just be some bracket has come loose. should i renew the gearbox oil? the guy at halfords said its guarenteed for lifetime. is this true or was he pulling a fast one?

    Selector cable help

    Hi guys, New to this site so please be patient. I've recently brought a 55plate focus 1.6 zetec climate. So to cut a story short, I had problem with the selector cables. I understand they come as a pair together, they need replacing. But my issue is I don't know which ones to buy, are they all the same? Some were saying for a certain transmission. It's stressing me out trying to find things online. So I though I'd ask in the best place. Thanks
  16. Hi, yesterday I noticed I was leaking oil. Originally assumed it was engine oil but looking underneath the car I think its pretty much coming from a gearbox sensor,,, Unfortunately I don't know which sensor is it (check manual and haynes), its near the front of the car, on the gear box (more to the passenger side)

    WHINING

    HI ALL, RECENTLY BOUGHT A 2002 KA COLLECTION WITH 56k MILES. WHEN ITS STARTED ITS SOUNDS LIKE A GRINDING NOISE? IT DOESN'T REALLY EASE OFF AS DRIVING TOO. THE CLUTCH BITES REALLY LOW, BUT EVEN IF IT WAS THE RELEASE BEARING, SURELY THE NOISE WOULD QUIETEN OFF WHEN CLUTCH PRESSED? I AM RIGHT IN UNDERSTANDING, THESE CARS SUFFER FROM GEARBOX FAULTS? ALSO DOES ANYONE LOCALLY TO ME FANCY CHANGING THE CLUTCH FOR ME? (WITH PAYMENT OBVIOUSLY)

    Mk 3 Engine Problems

    Hi all, My Ford Mondeo MK3 is giving me a headache.The gearbox and engine lights are on.I ran diagnostics on the ECU which returned trouble codes:P0171,P0403,P1131,P0073,P1000,P1432. It seems the car has problems with the Engine Thermostat,,Heated O2 Sensor and ERG Sensor.I don't know where to start.The car drives and it seems when the fuel pump get hot the car starts jerking and refusing to change gears. I would like more advise on what to look out for before I replace these sensors. Many thanks for your advise.
  19. Hi All, First time working on a transmission system and I've made my car (Ford Focus mk2 1.6 zetec - manual - petrol) severely pull sideways by turning a small black adjustment knob on the top of the transmission differential that had a retaining clip on it. I've circled it in red in the attached picture. It sits on top the differential block, just above the RH drive shaft with a small sheet metal retaining clip that pulls over it to secure it. If anyone could tell me what it is/does? And how I readjust it back to being equal? That would be great. For those interested I changed the oil seal on the RH driveshaft and needed to refill the oil, I spent sometime turning and pulling at it thinking it was the filler plug to top the oil up. I found the correct filler plug after doing research but when driving off I noticed my car has become extremely unstable and pulls to one side, skids when at full lock and jumps to the side when driving over wet drains. Quite a drastic effect for something so easy to turn but definitely not good for the tyres or putting stress on the gears. Thanks in advance, Chris

    sierra

    i have a K reg 2.0 dohc sierra and the gearbox is winning is there anybody who may be able to help. we are looking for a decent replacement or someone who can replace the main bearings and the 1st to 2rd sincro hub
  21. Awrite folks, does anybody know the gear ratios through the box for the Mondeo 4 2.5T TitaniumX? Can't find it for the life of me.
  22. I've got the new (2015) Ford Focus with the 1.5 120PS diesel and its mated with Ford's new six speed manual gearbox. I had done less than 3k miles when it started making clunking noises changing in and out of second gear. I put it into the dealer and was told "we can't fix it because our Focus six speed demo car also exhibits that noise". I told them that wasn't satisfactory and to look at it again. Once again they are saying that there's nothing they can do but - because I told them that I'm taking the car on a European driving tour in a few weeks - that they would ask Ford about it. If my car has the problem and the local garage's Focus also has the problem then I'm pretty sure that other Ford owners will experience this. If you have, please let me know!! Apart from that, its a lovely car. Handling in particular is superb. Anyone else got one?
  23. Hi , I was hoping you clever lot could help with an issue I'm having with my car? I have a 2005 (55) Mondeo tdci 130bhp and 6 speed box. The mileage is 96000. In the last 3 months, I've had the DMF and clutch replaced with new thrust bearing. . The parts were L-UK. I've also had a new aux belt and pulley kit fitted. Right, the problem.... About a month ago, I started to hear a slight whine from what I thought was the gearbox. Over the last month, the noise has got much worse. The things I've done so far.... I've had the car on a ramp with all 4 wheels unsupported. When up in the air, you can rev the engine and change through all the gears and it doesn't make any unusual noise, however the noise is very much there when driving through all 6 gears. In reverse, the whine isn't there. There are no oil leaks. Wheel bearings have been checked and nothing is apparent. I've spent approximately £800 recently. I don't really want to spend much more. From the sound, You would think it's the gearbox. What I don't understand is, when the car is up on a ramp and the wheels unsupported, the noise isn't there. Could it be a drive shaft or diff issue? Any help would be very much appreciated. If I had hair, I would have pulled it all out by now. Thanks, Jim.
  24. Hi, Got a 2006 1.4 Fiesta Ghia with ~75k miles on it and seem to have a bit of a problem with the clutch / gearbox. When I'm pulling away and the engine's cold, or changing gear particularly harshly (high revs) I get a reasonably high pitched squeal for about half a second as I'm releasing the clutch - after the biting point. From what I've read, it's a fairly common thing with Fiesta's. Anyone know what it could be?
  25. I recently had my clutch changed in my fiesta and after a few month's there is a leak coming from somewhere. could it be possible to use heatproof sealant to close the gap would that work or am I just wasting my time? I don't really want to put more money into the car as I'm looking for something newer.
