I have a 2002 escape so I'm not sure how much different it is for you.

There is a pan on the driver's side of the engine up towards the front by the radiator. It is sitting vertically facing the front of the car. I went through the painstaking process of pulling mine off to find the transmission filter, only to find it didn't have a filter. Everyone told me it had a filter, even the dealer. All lies =) Don't waste 3 hours of your time pulling that thing off and then trying to get it back on.

This is more diffucult than changing the oil filter for engine oil.

You must remove the transmission pan. The filter is housed within the automatic transmission oil pan and is attached to the valve body by several small screws or bolts.

You should be aware that many do it yourselfers choose to take this job to a professional!

Good Luck

Landcruiser 200 transmisssion slips

First, change the transmission fluid and filter. That may do it. If that does not do it, look for shorts and bad or broken wiring going to the transmission. If not get the truck to a transmission shop or dealer that can scan the transmission control computer.

How much transmission fluid does it take when changing the transmisssion screen and filter?

When the pan is dropped and fluid is drained, to refill, it usually needs 5 - 6 quarts. When refilling, check the transmission fluid dipstick as you are adding the last two quarts. And also run the transmission thru the gears.

Transmisssion make s noise when put in gear. I

I think at this point a proper diagnosis & estimate of repairs would be wise from a reputable transmission shop. You can always say no, but check all options, such as rebuild, replace, etc. Good Luck. P.S. sometimes a used one is a bad idea as well, unless it's confirmed low mileage & well maintained.
