Dear camera_luv,
Just went through the slipping nightmare!
Here's the deal, check between the thermostat housing and the transmission where it connects to the engine block after you have let it warm up to operating temp. If you feel water then you have a leak in this housing that leaks water and antifreeze directly into the clutch area of the transmission. Btw, just in case, the thermostat housing is the black plastic part on the front right of the motor that connects to the radiator hose. If you can help it, DO NOT TAKE IT TO A MECHANIC! They wanted to charge me over $200 to replace what turned out to be a $50 part at O'Riely's and about 30min.s of work! Hose clamp pliers a real plus on this one! Yes folks, a $50 part can cause you to shell out up to about $1200 in clutch repair costs! Go FORD!

How i clean the TPS sensor of a ford escape xls 2011 2,5 Lt l4 mecanic

it sounds like it's the idle air valve this controls the idle and drive rpm's when you step on the gas does it sometimes at idle go up & down by itself repeatedly? it could be something hitting the throttle and when you press down on the gas or shift it is knocked out lowering to normal idle/rpms, the tps is on the throttle body and is connected to the throttle lever and most likely right on the other side of the lever a little switch with a electrical plug on it search it so you can see what it looks like if you don't know already they are sealed and can not be cleaned you must replace it try checking with the car in park engine running and raise the idle by the throttle lever if it goes smooth up and down return to rpms that's not it if it races or sputters and then raises up that's it or it could be both units are blown out needing to be replaced

2002 ford expedition rpm not right

DId the Check Engine light ever come on?? Normally with such a major problem the check engine light should of activated in which case you can take it to a Autozone or most auto parts stores adn they can plug a Code reader into your system download the codes/messages and it should pinpoint or at least point you in the correct direction as to what is causing your issues.
I have had to do that a couple times with my 2005 Chrysler T&C due to a O2 Issue, and a Catalytic convertor issue.

Truck still moves with clutch pressed in.


I had this problem on my 2600i Mazda.

Check your clutch resevoir--if this is low or empty this is the problem--there is a leak. The leak is usually the clutch cylinder (has a bleeder valve) which is bolted to the transmission. Follow the metal lines from the reservoir down by the tranny should be a bolt or two and a bleeder valve ($20 or so). Bleed like you would your brakes.

Hope this helps--

My autotransmission will not shift when starting out Ineed to back off the gas so it goes to 2,000 RPM and then shifts if not it will just run high rpm and really not go that fast .

You either have transmission shift solenoids that are faulty or internal problems. Try having a technicion hook a scanner up and have the solenoids tested while being driven. That will tell u your answer. Thanks Josh

I have a 2002 Ford Escape that starts ok, but when you attempt to give it gas, it bogs down and the engine cuts out. If you start it and do nothing, it will idle at a very very low RPM.
