Question about Ford Escape
My transmission light came on, I checked my fluid. It was empty. I added 1 quart, which brought the fluid up to the cross hatches on the dip stick. It says dont add fluid if its in the cross hatches. So, Im assuming its full. Although, the light still will not go off. What should I try next? Its a 2003 Ford Escape V6
It looks like the transmission level sensor is burned out. You know that the transmission wasn't empty but it was only low...one quart, to be exact. Replace the sensor!

THERE IS NO DIPSTICK. CAR MUST GO TO DEALER TO HAVE CHECKED AS SCANNER HAS TO BE HOOKED UP & MUST BE BROUGHT UP TO TEMPERATURE TO CHECK LEVEL

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!
Keep using Fixya
