Question about 2001 Ford Escape
You have to take the plastic panels around the streeing wheel off (it's pretty easy). The cable is sold as a complete assembly. There is a plastic coupling on each end and ususlly, the end next to the transmission breaks. The internal plastic falls out and the cable slips off the trans. shift pin. You can fix it without replacing the cable, if you can find the correct size "E" clip to hold the transmission side of the cable to the pin attached to the transmission. Just look at the transmission side of the cable and you will see what I am refering to. It's pretty easy to access from under the hood (pass side). Just look and you will see the loose cable that has popped off the shift pin. I just happened to find the correct E pin and it worked. If you buy a nes cable assembly, it will probably cost around $68-retail.
Wholesale cost is around $35. I was going to replace the shift cable, but the clip seems to be working fine and I have not had a problem...

If you look down at the trans where the cables attach to the shift tower, the cable sheaths also attach to the transmission with black metal sheet metal clips. Sometimes the clips come off and the cables are loose and it is very hard to get into and out of gear. If that is the case then you need to get new clips. If that is not the case then more than likely, you need to replace the shift cables.
Remove the clips that attach the cables to the shift tower and you should be able to run the transmiaaion through the 5 forward gears and reverse...if that is OK the it's the cables...if not then it is internal to the trans.
