It very well could be the shift solenoid, that would cause the symptoms that you are describing.

if you have a shift solenoid and a incorrect gear ratio you are prob looking at another trans or a rebuild. The Ford Escape im sorry to say have weak transmissions, they can go at 70,000 miles or last to 200,00 miles no matter your driving habits
