Question about 2002 Ford Escape
Ihave an 02 escape 3.0l auto power 4wd xl. while driving on interstate at 65mph in cc, I slowed for work zone then hit resume, engine tached to 5g"s and stayed at the same speed.then the engine started to rattle.I checked it and found #4 rod bearing spun,so I rebuilt the engine and it is running fine. I had the local trans expert check the trans, he said it was ok,but I still have a problem. When accelerating in passing gear the trans seems to stall while the engine tachs higher than normal (about 4 g's) Is it slipping if so is it O.D. or is the solenoid failing? What would you recommend?
I would recommend taking it to another tranny shop. Because if the tach is higher than normal then more than likely its slipping. Eather way what ever it is. I wouldnt wait till the last min, because it could be just the tranny pump and if so then it can be saved before it wrecks havoc on the tranny.
