2002 Ford Escape Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Ford's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Ford Escape? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Escape towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Escape transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Ford Escape’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Ford, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
