Asked by Sep 26, 2014 at 06:46 PM about the Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 05 Escape XLT 2WD will only move in drive 1 and reverse but this happened all of a
sudden I can crank it and let it run to charge the battery and all and I move it around once
in a while; but, now my O/D light is flashing... Please give me some advice as to what is
going on... I have a lot of mechanics telling me it's the transmission but I want a second
opinion... I also have a few saying it could be other things... shed some light on this...

Have you tried,and sound,s like you have nothing to lose,replace filter and fluid,leave fluid a quart low,and add some transmedic,in to it,may help,but can,t hurt.

TST you can't replace the filter on the CD4E transmission as it's only accessible if you dismantle the trans. You can drain the trans and get 4 qts out of it at a time, or remove the hoses and do it quicker. IMO, the OP aka "Brooks" would be wasting his time. Since you lost all the forward gears except 1 and have the O/D light on, (which is a trans fault), 90% chance you are going to be rebuilding the trans.
