Ford Escape Transmission Blown

I have an 01 ford escap 3.0 fwd with 73k with squeeling tie rod ends but
there are no after market parts availible yet and the factory ones are $60
a piece and are non greaseable. Well on top of the sqeeling i have noticed
a pop, just one, when turning left or right and accelerating slowly. Well
i got concerned when it got louder so i checked the front end and every
thing was tight. Took it for a test drive and heard the pop when taking
off from a stop and turning left mostly. When i stopped and and did tight
circles to the left at a bout 10mph the trans poped radomly and the case
cracked. Now the trans has leaked all the fluid out and is 13k over
warranty. Does any one know where i could get a reman trans for my escape?
Im in Texas and have only one resorce but they have to have a rebuildable
core and wont sell thier trans without a core so what do i do? Thanks for
any input. Derek Texasbadboy19@aol.com

You check the internet and see if there are TSBs for the transmission
problem.

In addition, you might be able to buy just the case without the guts from
Ford. You can also try going to a junkyard and getting a transmission. I
realise the truck is only 4 years old, but they get into crashes, like
every other vehicle. And a lot of them are turnovers, which means the
transmission is fine.

I think the same engine is used in the Ford Ranger and maybe some Mazdas
(besides the Tribute). Maybe the transmission is shared, as well, and the
parts are more available.

If you get a rebuilt transmission, you can usually buy a rebuilt and just
not return a core. Of course, you will get charged for the core.

You might also talk to the service manager at the dealer. They often have
programs where Ford will pay for part of the repairs. You can also go to
the factory rep.

Good luck.

Jeff
