#138 of 146 escape transmission issue
Feb 01, 2013 (7:59 pm)
I have a 03 escape 3.0 4wd. the problem i'm having is with the transmission. The truck works in all gears but drive. it wont engage in drive from the start. But i'm able to shift it into drive if i start out in 1st then 2nd and move it into Drive then it drives fine. From my understanding the filter is located in the transmission case and not in the pan, Is this true? i just picked this up and planed to replace the transmission anyway, but i dont want to waste money if i dont have to... Also do i have to replace the torque converter if i put in used transmission or rebuild it myself..
thanks for any help you can give.....
Also the o/d light will start flashing once i get upto 50mph.
And no i'm not getting any transmission codes.

"Sure- have everyone of your receipts- that show you bought the vehicle new- have taken it back to the selling dealer- they can't fix your suspected problem in 3 tries "
Not sure of other states, but for accuracy, the Lemon Law in California only applies if you bought the car new, and within one year you had the vehicle in three times for the same problem, or the car was out of service for 30 days. It does not apply after that first year, or with a used car.

Some states require as many as 5 trips and even if you win, the dealer may get one more try to fix it. Lemon laws need work. And they don't usually don't apply if you buy your car out of state. But there's always your local consumer protection agency or AG's office or your personal attorney could probably do a failure of warranty kind of claim.

my friend just had her tranny die on hers, and I went to the page you said Rosemary9 and yes the page is blank, but then there is a pop up with the info its 7 pages long. I printed it out for my friend so they don't give her a hard time about not coming up. thank you, I hope this helps.
#146 of 146 signals before dieing

most tranny or other engine parts give indication before stopping or dieing. If its not in Ford's system about screwups, they will ignore you. Or as my experience, 'we have never heard of that happening before', till you get on the web.
