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.

The Trans fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles or two years.
Changing any fluid on a vehicle is never a fix for anything,just preventative maintenance.
You should have done the Power Steering Fluid, Trans Fluid,Brake Fluid,Etc a couple of times,before getting to 80K.
Also I would hope you changed the spark plugs buy at least 60K.
You may have a TCC Solenoid going bad,but the engages the torque converter clutch.
Is it shifting into OD? Most likely you have a solenoid issue,but need to find out which one. Most fords have a solenoid pack in the trans,with all of them in one unit. Not sure on yours.
The only way it will be expensive, is if you go to a dealer or get pitched some story by a shop, not able to diagnose, what is most likely a simple fix.

Jack you vehicle up and put it on jackstands. Loosen the dipstick tube collar and let the fluid drain into a container. Next take the transmission pan bolts out and remove the pan from the transmission making sure you don't spill the remaining fluid. Next clean the gasket surfaces on the transmission and pan very carefully removing all residue and glue with a solvent and then air dry. Be sure to clean the bottom of the pan thoroughly. Remove the filter from the mount inside the transmission. Now you are ready to install the O-ring and a new filter tightening the bolts securely. Next install the gasket and the pan to the transmission and be sure to torque the bolts with a torque wrench to specifications. Install the dipstick tube and tighten the collar. Lower the vehicle and add the fluid through the filler tube, don't overfill please. Now with the transmission in park and the parking brake set, run the engine at fast idle, but not too fast. Move the gear selector through each range and back to park. Check the fluid level and check for leaks. Now You Are Finished and Ready to Go.

you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.
