Question about 1994 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Third gear doesnt want to engage on 1994 ford

Third gear doesn't want to engage on 1994 ford escort lx wagon automatic transmission. When it gets to third gear shift, the rpm's red line and it doesnt engage unless you drop the rpm's really low, even then, it tends to struggle to shift over. once in third gear, it runs pretty high in the rpm's and works hard enough to cause it to run very hot though not overheat.

Electronic pressure control solenoid circuit p1745. Check engine light on 2000 ford escort, 4cl, automatic. Advance auto told me it was a dealer part but I can't find it on any of the ford websites?...


Here is what the service manual says about the EPC solenoid, the processor looks at allot of different inputs to command the solenoids, such as Throttle Position Sensor, Vehicle Speed Sensors, Transmission Range Sensor and RPM signal, The PCM controls the shift patterns for the transmission. Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) Solenoid
The electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid is located on the main control valve body and is controlled by the PCM. The EPC controls line pressure used to apply and release clutches and bands in the transmission.
The 2-3 shift solenoid is located on the main control valve body and is switched on and off by electrical signals from the PCM. The 2-3 shift solenoid activates the 2-3 shift valve which controls the automatic shifting between second and third gear. Second gear is established when the 2-3 shift solenoid is switched on. The 2-3 shift solenoid is switched off when vehicle speed increases and requires a second to third gear upshift.
The 3-4 shift solenoid is located on the main control valve body and is switched on and off by electrical signals from the PCM. The 3-4 shift solenoid activates the 3-4 shift valve which controls the automatic shifting between third and fourth gear. Third gear is established when the 3-4 solenoid is switched off. The 3-4 shift solenoid is switched on when vehicle speed increases and requires a third to fourth gear upshift.

Escort wagon automatic wont shift into any gear


You may need the transmission serviced with new fluid, so have that done first, if that doesn't cure the problem you will need an overhaul.

The rpm's in my 1995 escort wagon surge when shifting from 2nd to


It sounds like your clutch is slipping. Does it do it more when the wagon is loaded or going uphill?
Most likely needs a new clutch.

I jsut bought this 93 ford escort lx station wagon


If this is a manual transmission the clutch has burned out, it may need to be replaced, if you do not do your own mechanic work I would suggest that you take it to a good local repair shop and have them check it out. If this is an automatic I would still suggest the same, but the actual problem could be more complex. Hope this helps, let me know.
