Question about 2004 Ford Escape
The filter is in the transmission, you have to remaove the tranny to change it on the 02 escape. Beware these tranny's go bad often. I am on my 2nd tranny at only 90000 miles

That's incorrect. I took the pan off my 02 escape last week to discover that there's no filter. There is a drain plug underneath on the bottom of the transaxle. You need a ratchet to get the plug out. If you have a V6 don't waste your time trying to get the pan off. It will take you an hour to get it off and 2 to get it back on.

The transmission filter is located in the transmission pan.
remove the pan note: there is no drain plug. once you have removed the transmission pan the filter will be visible.
clean area and apply new gasket than reassmeble.

SOURCE: transmission filter
If it is an automatic most have the filter in the transmission, Since there is not a drain plug on most automatic transmissions, you have to loosen the transmission pan bolts and let it drain. Then you have to take the pan off and there you will see a flat filter, usually held on by three screws. This job should left to a qualified repair shop unless you are a good shadetree mechanic.

I had the defective cooler replaced yesterday and the Ford service manager told me there is no pan or filter in the 2008 escape, only a screen.

SOURCE: 2002 ford escape tie rod squeaks
My outer tie rod did the same thing when just out of warranty. I could tell it was "bad" by putting my hand on the tie rod while someone else turned the steering a little and I could easily feel the vibration.
Check the other side to feel the difference. Tie rods don't cost that much, if you can replace it yourself, and take a chance on foregoing the wheel alignment. Maybe a $150? job at the shop.
In my case, a tie rod was not readily available. I verified that it was a good joint; no shake or rattle. Then I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and put it back together. 70,000 miles later, the new tie rod is still on my shelf waiting for the squeak to return.
