2001 Ford Escort Transmission Service

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 your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Escort’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 2001 Ford Escort transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Ford Escort transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Escort isn’t working at all.

2001 Ford Escort Questions & Answers

  • 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.
  • How much can I tow in a Ford Escort? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • When should I have my Escort's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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.
