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.

Calling all tranny mechanics, is a transmission likely to not perform in drive if 1 the computer failed? and if the internal filter has not been changed and how easy is it to replace a filter on a 2001...


Yes your transmission is computer controlled so a computer failure would directly affect operation. To change the fluid and filter just drop the pan remove the one or two bolts holding the filter in place and then grasp on two sides and pull straight down then take said filter to your friendly parts store nad match with a new one reverse steps to reassembl taking care to keep everything hospital clean.

On the 2005 it is actually part of the fuel pump in the tank. However, there is a fuel filter located under the vehicle, passenger side by the gas tank.

Ford escape 2001. When I accelerate to overtake another car only the rpm shoot up but the speed does not increase.


your transmission needs immediate service. common with the escape. Turbine sensor or low transmission fluid in most cases. otherwise upwards to torque converter failure.
AAMCO transmissions should be your best start

I am trying to locate the fuel filter for my 2001 ford escspe. where is it?


It is very easy locating the Fuel Filter. It is located in front of the Fuel Tank located at the Driver Side. To identify the Filter more clearly, you will see that the Filter will have 2 Hoses attached to it. These Hoses will be further attached with Clips which are usually Whitish or Yellowish. Sir, I think now you can get the location of the Fuel Filter. Contact me for Further Doubts.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Fuel filter at foer escape 2001 4w chenging


start the engine  open the hood and remove the system fuse 
the engine will stall, the pressure is now relieved 
the fuel filter is in front of the fuel tank, driver side 
wear gloves/saftey glasses and have a fire extinguisher available (who knows!) the filter will have 2 hoses attached at either end. white/yellowish clips attach these hoses. feel for the top of the clip and push the 2 ends in and down. you may have to use a screw driver to pry the bottom of the clip as well. pull the bottom of the clip down, it will not come out of the coupling completely. repeat for both lines, pull lines firmly off of filter. unscrew filter from hose clamp. approx 6-10 oz of fuel will spill from lines and filter. you should use a pan. install new filter, in same direction as last. insert new clips into coupling, discard old. clip on "out" side may be reused if an R clip. tighten clamp on filter, attach hoses. push in clips to lock. inspect for leaks, wipe entire area clean of fuel. insert fuse and attempt to start. Cycle the ignition to run and off three times before starting to pressurize the fuel line. Good luck and hope this helps.
