It does sound like a clutch, but deserves to be more thouroughly checked out, Does the clutch pedal feel normal? is there a little free-travel at the top of the pedal stroke? do you see oil dripping under the car?
Clutches usually go out slowly, they start to slip under heavey load first, then gradually slip even under light loads in low gears. If an axle was loose, it could have spun in it's hub, with the hood open ans an observerstanding beside the car looking down at the axles, slowly let the clutch out (engine running, in reverse gear, ) being careful not to hit your assistant, if the axles turn- one of them, but the wheel doesn't this is your problem. If the axles don't turn with the clutch out, and engine still revs, well it's time for a clutch or transmission, Good luck, hoe this helps

That smell is your clutch material burning up from the engine reving and the clutch being partially engaged. When a clutch gets that hot a few things happen, the clutch disk material wears down giving less grab and the pressure plate overheats causing warpage, erratic engagement, slippage and weakening of the metal spring or flanges that apply pressure to the clutch pack. The clutch might be damaged, your (or the previous owners) driving habits may be wearing it at an accelerated rate or there could be a master/slave cylender issue.

your trans has lectronic controls to operate the shifting of your trans. If there is a defect, a fault code will be stored in the computer, called a DTC. You need to have someone with a scan tool check for the fault code. It is likely a solenoid that is not working or stuck.

Get the codes first. Autozone can run the test for free on engines, maybe trans codes too. Call your local Autozone or big parts store and ask them.

SECTION 307-01: Automatic Transaxle/Transmission 2001 Escape Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Transaxle Description The CD4E automatic transaxle is a four-speed, front wheel drive automatic transaxle with electronic controls for:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid for shift quality.
  • Shift scheduling.
  • 3-2 shift timing.
  • Coast braking.
  • Torque converter clutch control.
The transaxle features a four element torque converter with a torque clutch and a geartrain that includes:
  • Compound planetary gearset.
  • Chain drive.
  • Planetary gearset final drive.
  • Pinion and side gear differential.
The hydraulic control system of the transaxle has five solenoids that control:
  • Shift feel, through line pressure control.
  • Shift scheduling, through shift valve positioning control.
  • Modulated application of the torque converter clutch.
  • Timing of 3-2 shifts.
  • Engine braking during coast operation.
----------------------------
Solenoid Valve Body Assembly The solenoid valve body assembly contains the transmission fluid temperature sensor (TFT) sensor, as well as five PCM controlled output devices:
  • Electronic pressure control (EPC) solenoid.
  • Shift solenoid A (SSA).
  • Shift solenoid B (SSB).
  • 3-2 timing/coast clutch solenoid (3-2 T/CCS).
  • Torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid.
---------------------------------
You may need your PCM, Powertrain Control Module reflashed by a Ford Dealer.
Try disconnecting your battery for 1/2 hour and then reconnect and see what happens. It will run a little rough and shfit hard until it relearns your engine/trans characteristics.
Let us know results of tests and DTC codes if you get them.

My 03 Hyundai Santa Fe is slipping out of gear while im driving


Sounds like the clutch is slipping . You will need a new clutch assembly and fly wheel. Also make sure the crank shaft end play is not excessive.

New clutch and car is still slipping


in some cases if the ther is not enough free play in the clutch pedel as the engine area heats up things will expand in this case the distance of freeplay in your clutch pedel. have your clutch pedel freeplay adjusted. Also it is recomeded NOT to resurface the flywheels on nissans It dose change the hight and the distance for where the fingers of the pressure plate and the release bearing flang contact
