Question about 2005 Ford Escape
There is a big problem the transmission slips
into IDLE. Some 2005-2008 Escape
and Mariner vehicles equipped with a CD4E automatic transaxle and built
from 8/1/2004 through 2/15/2007 may exhibit an engine stall
when coming to a stop or when engaging the transmission into drive or
reverse. This condition may be intermittent and often occurs after
extended drives. There may be no diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) stored.
This may be caused by internal wear in the torque converter which
prevents it from unlocking.
