Question about Ford Escape
The transmission solenoid pack is located inside the transmission, the solenoids are in a pack of solenoids (sold as one unit) attached to the valve body under the sheet metal transmission pan, u will need to jack the car up in the air and set it on safety stands, u will also need a large drain pan to catch the 3-4 quarts of AFT fluid that will drain out, there is no drain plug, it will be very messy, once the pan is off you will see the shift solenoid pack bolted to large assmebly called the valve body, carefully disconnect the wire connectors to this solenoid pack and remove it, reverse instructions to install, don't over-tighten the trans pan gasket, about 10 foot pounds will do, tighten in a alternating pattern so it is bolted down evenly, once the trans is buttoned up lower the car and add 2.5 quarts of MERCON transmission fluid, then run the engine until the trans is very hot, about 185 F, then slowly add fluid until the trans fluid is in the safe zone of the trans dipstick, DO NOT OVERFILL!, it is a cross hatched section, this will require about another quart to top it off, clean up and u are done.
