Replace the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). $30 to $40 if you do it yourself or $70 to $95 if you have a service station do it. This will fix all of your problems related to the TRAC OFF light and transmission shifting into low gear.

It was the tiny metal shavings in the tranny cooling system that continued to circulate the system.

Just replaced trannie(auto) in 1993 escort, it has a little hesitation when shifting gears and the new oil smells burnt and is frothy on the tip. the level is low could the low fluid level be the problem?


YES! But your tranny has a BAND for first gear, and clutches for 2nd, third, and if equipted, 4th. The bands are usually the cause of the "burnt smell." The foam is cause by fluid aggitation. DO NOT JUST ADD FLUID. Drain the fluid in the tranny case, and replace the filter, and the fluid. I suspect that the salvaged tranny may have a burned 1st gear band.
