Welcome to Ford transmissions. Have you checked your transmission fluid? I don't know how the trannys are on the escape, but the Ford Taurus was terrible and it may have just gone out on you.

How do I fix the transmission problem? The car is moving forward at neutral, drive and low gear, and switching to parking mode at reverse and parking. The car is not backing up at all.


Transmission may now be toast since you continued to drive it when maybe low on fluid or torque converter had failed. How long since last fluid and filter change? Ever?

What would stop a transmission from shifting ?


On a newer car this is a mode the transmission goes into when there is a bad problem with the transmission. It will usually go into 2nd gear where you can drive it safely to get it checked out but will not shift into any other forward gears.

If it is an automatic, and absoloutely no movement it sounds like the torque convertor has failed. Either impellor or turbine. If it is a manual the clutch may have gone. If it is a manual, place it in gear and get a friend to rock the car back and forward. See if you notice any movement of the harmonic balancer/belts in the engine bay?

The transmission solenoids are not working properly. Probably requires a transmission rebuild.
I don't think it's in the ground strap or wiring.
It's an internal problem with the transmission.

To be honest with you Jeeps are notoriuse for their transmission problems.Most likely you have a shift solonoid in the transmission bad. I would have it checked before it gets worse to try and prevent internal problems.

Good Luck and I hope this helps you.

All forward gears work and shift fine....all the sudden no reverse, still drove forwards and shifed fine. Reverse is like park or neutral.


There is a pin in the transmission that has sheared off or a band has come loose. Bottom line you need to have the transmission serviced and repaired.

Will not run in forward gears


its a common issue that once the low forward band in ford transmissions wear out that it will engage first and 2nd at the same time. of course this is not mechanically possible and the car stalls out.

your fix is to replace the transmission
