It sounds like the torque converter is locking up and sticking. You have to remove the transmission to replace it.

2005 Ford Escape v6 4wd Runs and starts no problem when accelerating and it gets to 25 mph transmission basically goes into neutral until you drop below 25 and no check engine light.


Failed Transmission & need to rebuild it,
is more likely than a simpler fix

P0750 and P0755 codes on a 2005 Ford Escape, 6 cyl. Codes were pulles with the Check Engine light came on and then the warning light (O/D Off/Transmission) started flashing.


All I will tell you is, that any time you have transmission
issues,you have to stop using the vehicle immediately

It doesn't matter what the situation is with transportation
or appointments,your vehicle has priority over everything

If not, your going to end up pulling it out & your repair bill
will start at $1,500 & go up

Both those codes, as I suspect you know, appear to be
shift solenoids & you don't exactly have a premier trans
to start with,mazda I believe

I would suggest a trans repair shop

This will happen if the Torque converter goes bad or the TCM module. As well as any number of Solenoids inside the Transmission. When the Torque converter goes bad it the transmissions puts too much drag on the motor when you engage a gear. Basically it's like dumping a clutch on a standard. Have the transmission checked. Although I must say, if you have a mechanic or service shop looking at this I'm surprised it wasn't the first place they went after you explained the problem. You were most likely experiencing a loss of gas mileage as well. Were you using more fuel than normal prior to that point.

Problem accelerating after 50 mph


If you don't have a obdII code reader, I would take to autozone and have them check for stored obdII codes they do it for free even if check eng light is not on, and look them up on the net just type in the codes on the search ex ford escape p10442(whatever codes show up) and you should get problems associated with codes. It could be a number of things from a bad seneliod to the tranny pump, you would need to get a diagnostics test done to know for sure from dealer AMCO, or other facility that does transmission work it runs around $100. ope this is useful.
