Exclamation Tranmission problems. new to fords.

hey all...

i am new to fords and my new winter car is a 1997 Ford Escort LX. I its got 78500 (exactly) on it right now. And as I was driving it home... first and third gear were slipping. now i tried to check to fluid level, but i couldnt find the stick. since i have only had this car for like 2 months, bear with me. i am just in a bind and hope that the fluid level is low and not the gears are worn.

my question to anyone who knows. is there a stick where i can check the trans fluid with fords or no. yeah stupid question but new to fords.

It's an automatic (blah) 2.0 I4.

thanks all... i feel like a noob but i just

Re: Tranmission problems. new to fords.

G'day,
most of the trannies these days have done away with the dipstick, and use a similar system to manual boxes, where you remove the filler plug, and fill to that level...as for which one it is on your car.....i have NFI! but hope this helps in your education :)

Cheers
Jas

Thanks, I found the dip stick, the fluid level is where it should be so that increase my worries that it is actually the transmission. I am to check the sensors and hopefully that might be it, if not, then its the tranny. Thanks for your help though.
