2012 Ford Focus Transmission

Asked by sbolesraborn Apr 27, 2018 at 06:40 PM about the 2012 Ford Focus SE Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A friend just purchased a 2012 Ford Focus that was affected by the recall on
the transmission. The shop had the car for 5 weeks trying to repair the issue.
She got the car back, and two weeks in the water pump/radiator went out
and somehow caused the engine to blow, I believe cracking the block. The
extended warranty is saying the water pump is not covered, therefore the
engine isn't either. Is it possible that the radiator or water pump was
damaged during the rebuild on the transmission? Do you have to remove
wither of these items to get to the transmission?

This would be unrelated to transmission rebuild. Unless they somehow knocked a hole in the radiator. The water pump is never removed or touched taking the transmission out. I actually am pulling a 2012 ford focus transmission right now. I know that its coincidental, but if it cracked a head that means the head gasket blew off. which has nothing to do with transmission repair. completely unrelated parts. Unless they pulled out the engine, but that would only be done by a shop that had no idea how to take a transmission out. If the shop did anything to cause this. It would have happened within the first day or two of receiving the vehicle back.

The new CV torque converter was the issue with the motor overheating and blowing. The new trans comes with a much lighter torque CV converter and therefore the engines rev higher and longer to shift especially off the line. That is what happens when the CV converter is replaced. Usually they replace the clutch packs as well but any time you replace and or do a conversion of these sorts the engines like the fuel injected 2.0 motors are not made to withstand that timing change and spark advance for that amount of time thus the engine over revs and overheats because it is working harder and beyond the engines design capabilities. Seen this happening to even the older cars like the Taurus and Ford Contours that used that 2.0 and DPS6 tranny.... Hope I helped out
