I have a 2011 Ford Escape the transmission seems to hesitate shifting gears is this normal I just had the throttle body replaced but the transmission still seems to hesitate and the rpm rev high then go down
Is your Check Engine Light on?
How many miles since your last trans. Service ?
No my check engine lite is not on and I have only owned the car for a month it has 36000 miles on it and i don't know if the trans has ever been serviced
By chance do you have a factory warranty?
Not knowing when or if its ever been serviced I would start with that.. If you have ever changed the oil and filter on a automatic trans. You will know , this can be a messy job.. Not hard, just messy.. Auto oil changers will do it fairly reasonable price. Dirty filter & plugged ports will cause tranny to act up & even cause pump failure.. Good luck..
pull the dipstick seeif it smells BURNT , which may not be good
That's bad. If its still moving get a transmission flush along with a new filler. That may get you by for now.
