Re: 2003 Ford Escape transmission problem
I've never heard of that device..... But as I'm in Africa, so maybe not surprising?..... I do know that cooling the auto trans is very important and failure to have efficient cooling can result in failure.... Please contact your dealer and find out what they suggest..... It may be that you need a larger ratio of coolant anti freeze in the radiator..... Your agent will give you the info....

most likely your transmittion happened to me but in reverse my mechanic told me it was due to a transmittion flud hose that was too small which if you had your escape dealer serviced they replaced however it was not a recall the smaller hose in cold weather doesnt allow enough trans fluid to circulate which heats up the trans causing the clutch in trans to warp and disentegrate. when mine went it startd slowly engine would rev but car hardly moved then it would no longer move at all had t rebuild trans cost me 3200.00 im taking action against ford as to why a recall was not put into placed a few people i know who have escapes have had to rebuild trans for same issues hope it helps!
Does the engine crank but just not start? Or... are you cycling the ignition switch without trying to crank the engine? Based on the information you have given, I would first guess that the fuel pump may be going out. I say this because when you first turn the key on the pump primes the engine with pressurized fuel. If the pump is getting old, it may take a few power cycles to get it going. You can test this theory by having somebody listen near the rear of the car while you turn the key on for the first time. The fuel pump make a faint, yet distinctive high pitch noise that can be heard when you turn the key on. Try that first. Next thing you would try is checking the relays for proper function... starting with the fuel pump relay. Good luck.
It depends on where you live. the colder environments you want high cold cranking amps. warmer climates dont require high cold cranking amps.. A buy 750 amps or higher for my cars. I live in Oklahoma. It can get below zero here. If you want a quality battery remember this. Batteries are made by two different companies regardless of the sticker on the battery. The highest quality batteries weigh more. Optima are the best, but cost $120 and up.
