Re: Driveline Auto Trans Engagement Concerns for 2005 Escape
I just traded a 1999 Taurus in on a 2005 4-cylinder Escape on Sept. 24. On Wednesday of this week at 310 miles, the tranny made a loud grinding noise followed by a constant humming and slipping going into 2nd and 3rd gears. After returning it to the dealer and having them check it out, they are putting a new tranny in it due to "the insides being messed up". Best advice, keep on them about the issues you are having since there may be a problem with these trannys. Good luck!
I enjoyed everything about it for the 5 days I was able to drive it and I am looking forward to getting it back to see the difference with a new tranny.
