2000 Ford Focus se transmission won't shift why?

Not really enough info given to diagnose your problem. BUT, here's a possibility: IF it is an automatic transmission AND it won't shift out of second gear - second gear is a safety default called the "limp-home" mode. If the transmission is failing it will automatically lock into that gear so that you will at least be be able to get it to home or a repair facility. Transmissions are usually NOT a do-it-yourslef item, and it will probably have to be diagnosed by a mechanic.
