Please check out this web site for more information about your car. Sorry, but, your car is not highly regarded. Take a look at all the transmission problems with your car. If you can, I would bail. http://www.carcomplaints.com/Ford/Escape/2002/

Ok so now I put 15 6gallons of gas in tank and antifreeze in the coolant reservoir and get BARELY out of the gas pump and my temp gauge is all the way on H now its doing thy damN turn ac on And off and it cools off engine bla bla but with vibration Checked tranny fluid it's ok I suppose so now KM waiting to see if this bitch will act. Right If not gonna have to call triple a and get it towed Amy suggestions I NEED TO MAKE IT HOME OVER 40 miles away think it will make it


Just how many miles are on your car? If you have AAA Premier, they will tow your car up to 100 miles at no additional charge. So, we're not just talking about your A/C, but your cooling system and transmission. That's three system failures at once. Just how much money do you want to invest and you probably already read the link I sent you earlier. This vehicle is not doing well. Consider an alternative vehicle instead of fixing this. Sorry. Asian cars, particularly Honda , Toyota and Subaru are a safer bet. Good luck.
