2000 Ford Focus Q&A

2000 Ford Focus Question: transmision

is the transmision on a focus spi the same as the one on the ztec and can i change it from an automatic to standard -
Answer 1
Changing the transmission from automatic to standard is a huge job, First of all a automatic car needs to have a third pedal for the clutch and your wiring harness would need to be changed. Cheaper to buy a standard transmission car. -
Answer 2
And the fact Zetec and SPI don't hae the same type of transmissions. Zetec has MTX-75 while the SPI has an IB5 transmission (manual that is). -
