Question about 2002 Ford Escort

2002 ford escort zx2 tranny slipping from Andrew

I recently bought a 2002 ford escort zx2 from auction and driving it home i could not keep the transmission engaged. everytime i would stop it would ''come out of gear'' but if i would put tranny in neutral and back to drive a couple of times it would eventually take off but slipping horribly. and has a hard time wanting to go into reverse also. so i changed the tranny filter and fluid and now it goes into reverse just fine and goes into drive just fine and stays in gear but it slips on takeoff and when you gradually get it up to speed the tranny slips worse.
open to any ideas at this point.
thanks

Yes. Having owned a trans repair shop, I will tell you, never change fluid on a slipping trans or one that the fluid is very dark and stinks. Why? It will slip even more, to the point that you can't use it.

The Trans is burnt inside and has to be rebuilt or replaced with a remanufactured one. $1600.00 or more

I will be kind here, which is hard for me being a car guy.
Why did you buy a vehicle at an auction?

You buy cheap,you got nothing. I would expect those kind of problems, when deciding on a purchase such as you made and leave room in the puchase price to cover spending at least two weeks going thru the entire vehicle before putting it on the road.

2002 ford escort zx2 camshaft sensor fit a 99 zx2?


Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.
