I have a 2001 Ford Focus with an automatic xmission. It seems to be "loose" as I can hear slippage when it first starts up cold. It also seems to slip a bit shifting from 3rd to 4th.


Is this characteristic or is there something I can do to alleviate this?

When was the last time you changed the fliter/fluid? How many miles are on the car?

They have problems with the valve body, just be careful when taking the valve body out, remember where the springs go...good luck;j That should be a cd4e in a 2oo1

I bought the car used with 50,000 on it. They said the service was done when I bought it. I didn't mention cuz I forgot, but sometimes when I slow down at a light or stop sign to quickly, the engine will stop.

What does the valve do?

The valve body is the heart of the tranny,that directs the fluid where to go.

cd4e is non serviceable... sounds pretty charicteristic of that particular tranny actually... see if your local tranny shop can flush it for ya and if they offer an additive called lubegard, take it... good stuff.

BTW, I worked on trannies for ten years....:)

Why would Ford make a tranny non serviceable ;g


That's just plain stupid but it doesn't surprise me.

"Non serviceable"? What do you mean by that?

The FOCUS uses a new trans called 4F27E

The CD4E is non serviceable in that it does not have a bottom pan and you can't change the filter without tearing it down. SO A SERVICE BECOMES AN OVERHAUL;g
