Question about 2005 Ford Escape
How do you change the filter and fluid on an automatic transmission. 2005 ford escape
You will have to pull the pan off the bottom of the trans, the filter is inside, this is a very messy job and you will most likely get trans fluid everywhere, I would suggest a shop do this unless you have a good floor jack and 4 jack stands, you will also need a large drain pan to catch the fluid. If you do this job do not overfill the trans, get it hot before you top it off with fluid, add 2 quarts right away and then keep adding until it is just below the fluid full line on the dip stick.
PS the other post is a fluid flush and does not include a pan removal or filter change.
