Make sure you're replacing your transmission oil about every 30,000 miles, or as directed in your owners manual service section.
If your gears are slipping, it could be as simple as low fluid or old fluid no longer providing the correct lubrication between your gears.
The issue could also be that your gears have worn down and the metal parts aren't fitting together correctly anymore. This will cause a jump in gear shifting and can only be remedied by rebuilding the shaved down gears in the transmission. Typically, this issue can be identified by pulling out your transmission dipstick and inspecting for evidence of small metal shavings in the fluid.

Good luck!

My Ford Escort GL 1.6 Jerks whenever i reach 80km/h, the stench of petrol is also high during this time.


When it's in neutral and you hit the gas, does the rpm rise slowly? And if you try to give it too much throttle does it choke and try to die? It sounds like your catalytic converter is partially plugged, or there is some other exhaust restriction. If the check engine light is on, there may be relevant diagnostic codes available, some of the auto parts chains used to read the codes for you for free, but I'm not certain that is still the case.

1994 Ford Escort, auto trans, 83,000 mi, randomly won't shift from 1st to 2nd, randomly loses power at hwy speeds


It could be an internal problem with a pump, or it could be it needs to be serviced really bad. Most 'oil change' places can also do transmission services... I'd try that first, before paying a big repair bill to a shop. good luck.

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph
