What Does Your Ford Escort Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. 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. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Ford Escort transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Ford Escort transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Escort at all.

2000 Ford Escort Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Ford? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use 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. Defying your Escort towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • How often does my Escort transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Ford Escort’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
