Why is Your 2008 Escape’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. They're often easy to notice. Ford Escape transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Ford Escape transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Escape at all.

2008 Ford Escape Transmission Q&A

  • 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.
  • How much can my Ford tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • 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.
