Question about 1991 Ford Escort

1 Answer

My 1991 Ford escort recently had a new rebuilt alternator installed. Before it quit I noticed the transmission was taking a long time to get into 2nd gear. Now it is doing a similar thing. Do you have to add transmission fluid to an automatic transmission?

Yes, but first check the transmission fluid level with the vehicle parked on a level surface and the motor running in park.

There may not be a drain plug on this model.

Some ford transmission pans have drain plugs and others don't. Those without drain plugs are drained by removing the pan.

E4OD starts in 2nd or 3rd when cold


The E4OD is a complicated tranny and unfortunately prone to many problems. There are three shift controlling solenoids inside the tranny mounted to the valve body. Without being able to actually drive to evaluate it makes it very hard to give you a starting point for trouble shooting. I have rebuilt many of the E4OD transmissions over the years and found them prone to many problems. That's why Ford quit using them. A tranny shop can hook up to two different line pressure ports to evaluate the problem. But, be warned they are going to recomend a rebuilt be installed. You will be looking at around $ 3300.00 dollars for the rebuilt unit.

1999 ford escort zx2 alternator works brand new battery but battery isnt charging !


Stecorbett:

May I suggest that you drive your car to one of the major auto stores and they can and will check your alternator for you to make sure it is good/bad.These places like AutoZone do this all the time. They do not charge for the check out. (Of course they are hoping that if you need a part you will buy it from them.

One other suggestion. If you do need a new alternator, get a rebuilt one. It is cheaper and most always comes with a warranty.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please take a moment to give me a rating
