Are there any computer issues when replacing the automatic transmission on a 2008 Escape Hybrid

Asked by Aug 01, 2014 at 09:49 PM about the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The Ford dealership diagnostics indicate that my transmission is bad and needs to be replaced.  Can I replace it with a used transmission without special tools or computer reprogramming? The high voltage fuse in the cut out switch is also blown.

You can install a used transmission for sure. As far as the fuse issue, no clue. Stop in a few reputable transmission shops in your area and see how they can help. Are you thinking of replacing the trans yourself? You will need to do plenty of research on how to do this. You do need some tools and place to work to drop it and knowledge on the correct steps on how to do it.
