    Transmission is going in and out, mostly out. Will go into gear for a short time then not respond. Engine will rev with no response. Also when trying to shift into standard mode it will move into position but won't register its in standard. I want to try to replace the TCM but can't locate it. I...

    I posted a message Friday that my 2015 Escape was hesitating as though it wasn't getting enough gas. I was concerned as when i pulled into traffic, it putt-putted along. I did not use it yesterday at all...This morning, we took it to our dealer's lot to leave it...1 minute before pulling in...

    I’ve been told the transmission needed to be rebuilt as to what it sounds like is happening is the filter inside the transmission is clogged. The issue I’m having is total loss of power after it is running but if i cut it off and let it sit and crank it up and put in to gear immediately it will...

    Hello I was wondering if anyone has had the same problems I am having. While under hard acceleration my escape will kick like the motor is misfiring. It also does this while driving down the highway mainly going up hills in 6th gear. If I manually shift into 5th gear before going up the hill it...

    I've noticed an intermittent issue that only presented itself after the most recent dealer service at 62k. The issue is that when the engine is cold and I pull away first thing in the morning, I hear what can best be described as a whirring / grinding (it almost sounds like an RC car) when the...

    I've had this issue for about a month now. Escape will have a vibration only when applying power. Vibration gets bad, obviously, at higher speeds. The vibration does not affect the steering wheel or gas pedal. As soon as gas pedal is released, vibration goes away and Escape cruises smoothly...

    Hi, I've got a 2013 Escape 2.0 FWD that about a month ago had a message come up "Engine Fault - Service Now" and started running really rough. After stopping and restarting the vehicle, the message went away and it ran normally. I brought it into the dealer, they couldn't find any problem (no...

    I spent the last few weekends swapping the engines in my daughter's 2013 Ford Escape FWD (1.6L ecoboost). The used newly installed engine is running fine, but I got a output shaft sensor error - no signal (P0717 and P0715). So I think I either I knocked a connector loose when putting the motor...

    Hoping I'm not alone in this, but I'm getting very hard shifts from gear to gear. It seems to be amplified in warm/hot weather. I notice it most in gentle kick downs from 6th to 4th gear. Anyone else having this issue? Also getting a loud whining noise on cold starts for the first 10-15 min of...

    Dealer says there's nothing wrong with the transmission. My wife recently noticed it driving differently. I drove it and confirmed what she experienced: going from 4th to 5th gear, the engine over-revs by a few hundred rpm. Doesn't do it all the time. Seems to settle down after warm up. Of...

    I own a 2013 Ford Escape SEL with all the bells and whistles except 19inch rims. Make a Long Story Short I am slowly researching to make this SEL faster than the Focus RS. Now I know rims and some other parts can be swapped. I am looking for a list of parts that can be swapped from the...

    A 4 year old car with 63,000 miles on it should not need a new transmission! It's our commuter car, no towing, no hard driving just back and forth to work. My wife's Escape has been shifting hard from park into drive, kind of a lurch forward for a month or so and has been getting worse. After...

    Hi folks, I have been experiencing the 2-3 shift flare behavior on ALL shifts hot or cold, and now the vehicle is "dropping" hard from 1st to 2nd. I would very much like to know what if any info is recorded in the memory of the TCM. Problem is, I cannot get any Ford-Specific Android Apps to...

    Hello! I have a 2014 Escape SE FWD with ~44k miles on it. Brought the car in for a general service check at 38k about a year ago and they recommended the transmission flush. I had been driving a lot, so I agreed with the dealer's recommended items. A year later I had issues where the car bucked...
