Question about 1997 Ford Escort

1 Answer

My Escort is a 5 speed and a few days ago I could not get it into 3rd or 5th gears. Well, my son drove it and slammed it intothose gears, so I am now able to shift into those gears, but it doesn't feel right. I took it to AMMACO and they told me it's my shifter assembly. First does this sound right and second how hard of a job is this?

That does sound right and with all the small pieces and things that must align to work right,I would let a shop do the work so it done right and you don't risk your safety by doing it yourself.

Hello
You will need to have an experienced technical drive this before attempting any repairs, but my gut feeling is that you will need to rebuilt the transmission. That takes many special tools and a high degree of skill and training and is not something that really can be done at home with common hand tools.

I would say that you should go back to the shop and tell them whats going on. They didnt fix the problem properly in the first place and that is bad business. Look for another shop and see what they say.
