Question about 2010 Ford Escape XLT
I have 70 thousand miles on my escape and the fluid is dark
Yep! Paul's right! Get a complete t-r-ans-mission fluid flush and fill at Ford or Midas or SOMWHERE,but do it now! don-ohio (:^)P.S.
Every 40K miles is a good to replace fluid.

I had the defective cooler replaced yesterday and the Ford service manager told me there is no pan or filter in the 2008 escape, only a screen.

The Trans fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles or two years.
Changing any fluid on a vehicle is never a fix for anything,just preventative maintenance.
You should have done the Power Steering Fluid, Trans Fluid,Brake Fluid,Etc a couple of times,before getting to 80K.
Also I would hope you changed the spark plugs buy at least 60K.
You may have a TCC Solenoid going bad,but the engages the torque converter clutch.
Is it shifting into OD? Most likely you have a solenoid issue,but need to find out which one. Most fords have a solenoid pack in the trans,with all of them in one unit. Not sure on yours.
The only way it will be expensive, is if you go to a dealer or get pitched some story by a shop, not able to diagnose, what is most likely a simple fix.

The front seal could be replaced, and not have a problem. If you have a shop other than a transmission shop do the repairs, make sure the torque converter hub is inspected to make certain its not scratched/scorn. If the trans shifts properly and the fluid is not burned or smells burned, this would be an easy repair. If the trans fluid smells burned, and hasn't been serviced regularly, the rebuild would be the way to go. Also, ask what the warranty for any and all repair are on your vehicle. Normal warranty is 1yr, 12.000 miles in the automotive business.
