Questions About 2006 Ford Escape’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Ford? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Ford? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Escape's transmission fluid checked or exchanged?

A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Ford. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
