Question about 2001 Ford Escape
There is no fuel filter on a transmission, however a automatic transmission does have a drain plug, it's behind the oil pan, the transmission filter is not replaceable.There is no flat pan on the underside of this vehicle and if anyone states it does, does not know the ford escape period. On a ford taurus yes.

If it is an automatic most have the filter in the transmission, Since there is not a drain plug on most automatic transmissions, you have to loosen the transmission pan bolts and let it drain. Then you have to take the pan off and there you will see a flat filter, usually held on by three screws. This job should left to a qualified repair shop unless you are a good shadetree mechanic.

I had the defective cooler replaced yesterday and the Ford service manager told me there is no pan or filter in the 2008 escape, only a screen.

First, get yourself a BIG drain pan. Then crawl under the vehicle and remove all the bolts from the transmission pan (which will then fall on your head, dumping transmission fluid everywhere). You will see the filter attached to the valve body once the pan is removed.
