Why might a 2000 Ford Focus manual transmission not accelerate when the gas pedal is pressed even though the engine revs up?

Answer

The clutch is worn out or needs adjustment.

Or, you are just not utilizing the button under the shifter knob, that releases the transmission out of overdrive. You will find that the transmission will keep up with the RPM's if it is not in overdrive.


EDIT: There is no overdrive button for a manual tranny, that's what the 5th gear is for. If the RPMS are going up and the speed isn't, it's time to have your clutch examined.

You have not pressed the Clutch peddle to change the gears!!

an automatic transmission shifts through the 4 or 5 gears for you as you accelerate. a manual transmission must be shifted by hand using a shifter and a clutch (located next to the left of the brake pad).

An autimatic transmission will have a 4 speed transmission and a manual transmission will have a 5 speed transmission.
