PowerShift Transmission Challenges

Without moving so broadly into the technicalities, Ford Focus models from 2012 to 2016 tend to have problematic dual-clutch automatic transmissions. As a matter of fact, over 2 million customers have been affected by this so far. PowerTrain problems are incredibly noticeable, with the worst vehicle years for this issue being 2012, 2013, and 2014.

Some of the most noticeable symptoms associated with this transmission system include shaky feelings when accelerating from a stationary position, as well as rough gear upshift that causes the entire vehicle to vibrate. In some cases, you might even feel the vibrations in your steering wheel.

PowerShift transmission challenges can be complex to fix, but we have a team that’s capable of handling it. We will be able to properly diagnose the issue to find out what is affecting your transmission system, then move forward with a clear solution. Get in touch with us today and let’s begin.

Ignition Issues

Another significant challenge for the Ford Focus appears to be that of its ignition. Already, thousands of vehicle owners have reported several issues related to the part – from a locked steering wheel to keys not removing from the ignition to keys not turning when inserted in the ignition.

As expected, some of these issues could even happen while the vehicle is in motion. An inability to turn the key while in the ignition is especially old, being reported in Ford Focus models as far back as 2001 and 2002. And, even with some recent models, the issue could still very well persist.

The most direct fix for this will be to have a replacement for the ignition entirely. Doing this allows you to get an ignition system that is most compatible with your key, and which will be able to hold it perfectly.

With Precision Auto Care, you have the perfect partner for this type of job.

Suspension Problems

Back in 2008, Ford went on a major redesign of their vehicles. However, while this redesign was a welcome development, it also led to a major issue with the Focus’ suspension system.

Most owners primarily complained of hearing strange noises from the end of the vehicle. Just as well, the tires were prone to wearing off quicker than before.

If you find that these issues are prevalent in your car, then the first solution will most likely be to bring it in for a check. We can spot suspension issues and work with our trained technicians to get them fixed. Just as well, you might have to replace your tires and find stronger ones.

Whichever of the tasks you’re hoping to get done, rest assured that we will be able to help you out.

Sudden RPM Jumps

The RPM stands for “revolutions per minute.” Also referred to by some as “revs,” a sudden jump in this has been noted in several Ford Focus models – particularly from 2018. According to some owners, this causes the engine to suddenly begin revving when it shouldn’t. In some cases, owners claimed that they put their cars in “Park,” only for them to begin revving uncontrollably.

There are several reasons why a car could rev in “Park.” These include a sticking throttle body, a bad oxygen sensor, and possibly a vacuum leak. Regardless of the problem, rest assured that we will be able to lend a helping hand and ensure that your engine is back in top condition.
