Your Escape is an AWD, not 4WD. How do you know it isn't working? Do you have a light on the dash? The AWD works without any driver input and when wheel slippage is detected the cars system puts power to the other wheels to gain traction in seconds you don't even notice.

Thanks for your help. But the mechanic said that .There is a damage in the gears inside low gear.And when he left the car from behind and he tried to rotate one tire the other didn't rotate. So what does that suppose to mean. .. with no light on the dash..
