1995 Ford Escort Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 1995 Escort’s Transmission?

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 Escort transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Ford Escort transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Escort’s not even driveable.

Questions About 1995 Ford Escort’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Ford's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Ford Escort? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Escort is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Escort's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Ford Escort transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
