one way the mazda 2.3 differed from the ford 2.3 is the mazda version has vvt.
the 2.5's may be completely the same.
also the mazda 3.0 had different turning than the ford 3.0, so 95% the same.
#69 of 70 Sudden Transmission Power Loss
Sep 12, 2009 (6:14 pm)
I've had a new 2009 Escape for a few months. In most respects, a great SUV (my previous vehicle was a 2008 Escape). I'm finding though that occasionally, when I look to accelerate, and therefore hit the gas, the revs clearly go up on the tach, but the transmission stalls for about 5 seconds before kicking in. By then, I've generally taken my foot off the gas, and have waited for the transmission to find a gear that it's comfortable with. I vaguely recall others in these forums reporting similar problems, and am eager to hear of their outcomes. I've booked an appointment with the selling dealer on Tuesday to have this checked out. Thanks!

I mentioned this in another forum, but felt it was worth repeating... If you own a Ford Escape (or any Ford car), you should enroll in the Ford Owners (http://www.fordowner.com) website. Its everything online, and allows you to keep track of your carsí complete maintenance records, calendar/mileage of recommended maintenance, and tons of coupons to use when you have your car checked at a Ford dealer.
