What Does Your Ford Escape Transmission Do?

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. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2020 Ford Escape transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping 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 discover that your Escape’s not even driveable.

2020 Ford Escape Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • How much can my Ford tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Escape towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • How often does my Escape transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Ford Escape transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Ford Escape? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Ford Escape, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Where can I get my  Ford Escape transmission fixed? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair Escape transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Can I drive my Ford Escape with a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Escape to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
