My 2004Ford Focus zetec max auto keeps saying transmission

Customer Question

My 2004Ford Focus zetec max auto keeps saying transmission malfunction? I think it probably needs a new gearbox! If that was the case how much would that cost?

Hello

what I'd suggest 1st is to get the car plugged into a diagnostic device that can read off the stored fault code and give you a better idea of the fault

as its quite possible that it can be repaired - sometimes just an oil flush is all thats required

if it does need a new gearbox thenthe most cost effective repair would be to source a good used unit and replace the whole thing
