replaced an engine now the transmission is acting up when it wasnt before
i replaced the engine in my 2007 ford escape 2 wheel drive now the transmission is
acting up now where i didnt have any problems out of it before.. it acts like it doesnt
wanna shit when u get to 20 mph and then starts to jump back and forth and the overdrive
light keeps flashing what could the problem be
I would double check all electrical connections. Possibly one not fully plugged in or might have been bumped loose.
? "acts like it doesnt wanna shit ". Lol typo I am hoping.
yes meant to say shift sorry checked connections is there any thing else that could be causing it
Yes any number of the sensors could cause this type of issue. Did you reuse the sensors off of your old engine or use the ones on the replacement engine? Might try disconnecting your battery for atleast ten minutes then retrying it. This should reset everything. I will do some digging for a better answer for you.
Is your check engine light on? If so get the codes read this will help narrow down the possibilities.
Also are you having any issues with the new engines drivability? Idle issues, going dead, hard starts, ect.?
nope just shifting hard anf the over drive light keeps flashing done did all the computer stuff to it so far nothing is fixing the problem it acts like in wont stay in drive either it just wants to free wheel when it revs up to much
Overdrive light flashing means you have a trouble code stored. Get trans codes read and it will help you narrow down your issue. Can't seem to find one definite thing that might be causing your issues. Seems lots of escape owners have trans issues. Some as simple as speed sensors needing replaced. Others as major as needing new trans. Just can't stop thinking that with your engine replacement that you might just have a loose connection somewhere or loose ground wire.
