2017 Ford Escape Transmission Service

Why is Your 2017 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. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Escape’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Ford Escape transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Ford Escape transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Escape at all.

2017 Ford Escape Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Ford's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Escape’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Escape is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Escape's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Ford Escape’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Ford's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
