Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
on idle in park for few second then sounds normal. When rev it and let go it stays at the rpms I let go on for a sec before it goes back down to where idle rpms.

i would check the motor mounts they are famous for vibrations on the focus.....if you think its tranny related then thast would point towards a bad torq converter

How do you think the converter went bad?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm.Che k the motor mounts.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'll check the motor mounts.

they are not common for converter failure but age and miles are the biggest factor

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
if its the torque converter would it make the same vibration on
Park as it would on neutral when I rev?

no only in gear

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
