How do I check the transmission fluid

I have a 1993 Ford Escort Wagon with 5 speed transmission, 1.9L engine that is having trouble shifting, especially when car has been sitting overnight. I had the transmission fluid changed recently, had
the fluid suctioned from the master cylinder and replaced and still experiencing difficulty shifting. There is also a burning smell, especially
on hills.

My 1993 ford escort wagon will only shift into gear right after I turn engine on the longer I leave it off the further it will go before it starts to loose speed and stop


How long has it been since you had the transmission serviced? A plugged filter or water in the trans fluid will cause those symptoms.

1993 ford escort wagon with automatic transmission, it will not shift into the two higher gears it only has first gear.


Hi.

There are several things to check.

1) Check transmission fluid level.
2) Make sure that transmission is not in limp mode. That will restrict use of transmission to low gears. Go to the nearest car dealer and do a code scanning.If there are codes stored troubleshoot the codes.
3) Check if brake lights are working. Check brakes switch. The transmission shift lock may be on.
4) Check the TPS. The throttle position sensor is located on the throttle body The sensor detects the opening of the throttle, its output is used by the transmission control module to determine when to shift gears. The TPS is basically a variable resistor mounted on the throttle body. The TPS is tested by reading volts while operating the pedal. Making sure that voltage is in range and that there are no gaps or spikes in voltage changing while the pedal gets pressed slowly and smoothly.
5) Test the transmission switch solenoids. The higher gears solenoids may be defective. The solenoids are part of a pack located on the valve body in the transmission. The solenoids are tested reading Ohms at their terminal.
6) If you do not find anything else check wiring to transmission control module located under the dash. Make sure you did a code scanning.
7) Look for mechanical problems (clutch, valve, gears) inside the transmission.

Ford trauras trouble code 732 - was told transmission code 732 was being produced, what does a code 732 say?


P0732 FORD - Incorrect Second Gear Ratio
Transmission in second gear and the ECM detected an incorrect gear ration. This diagnosis monitors actual gear position by checking the torque converter slip ratio calculated by Transmission Control Module (TCM) as follows:

Torque converter slip ratio = A x C/B

A: Output shaft revolution signal from revolution sensor
B: Engine speed signal from Engine Control Module (ECM)
C: Gear ratio determined as gear position which TCM supposes

If the actual gear position is higher than the position (2nd) supposed by TCM, the slip ratio will be more than normal. In case the ratio exceeds the specified value, TCM judges this diagnosis malfunction.

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Incorrect transmission shifting

Possible causes
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Tech notes
Start by inspecting the transmission fluid level and condition, and change fluid if necessary.


Hope helps.

2003 series wagon feels like I am flooring the gas pedal and won't go past 20mph, stalls when I stop, shakes, rumble under the front floor board and keeps going to 5 rpm's without shifting?????


If your transmission is an automatic, it sounds like the torque converter is locked. It could be something as simple as a bad solenoid. You need to get it to a shop and have the computer scanned to see if the solenoids have triggered a trouble code. Also, check your transmission fluid while the engine is hot and running.

Replacing transmission fluid in standard


The manual transmission in the Ford Escort uses transmission fluid, it is checked and filled in the same hole. That hole is where the speedometer cable is hooked up to the transmission. Remove the speedometer cable, set aside, then remove the locking bolt that holds the speedometer drive unit in place. Pull up on the drive unit and it will come out, look on the side of the drive unit and you will see the level indicator line for full and add. Fill as needed and reinstall the drive unit and cable. Hope this helps, let me know.

Manual Transmission fluid for Ford Escort ZX2


I know this sounds crazy according to Ford:

You can use-
Motorcraft MERCON Multi-Purpose (ATF) Transmission Fluid XT-2-QDX MERCON® Alternative Transaxle Fluid - SAE 75W90 Gear Oil F32Z-19C547-MA API GL-4
You are seeing that right, one instance they call for 75W90 and the other it is ATF. It is ok to run either, 75W90 will give you smoother shifts and less noise.

This transmission is filled through the VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor) hole.
