Does a 97 ford escort have a clutch in the automatic transmission?


Yes, many. The automatic transmission shifts through gears relatively similar to an manual transmission, except it does the work for you. Kind of like one of the auto shift 10 speed bicycles shifts as you reach the maximum speed for the gear it's in. As opposed to a regular 10 speed bicycle that has to be shifted manually with the lever.
