Transmission Problem on '05 Ford Escape
My Escape will shift gears randomly on the highway. It will be in Drive then
suddenly downshift to 3rd or 2nd or even 1st. The dash indicator jumps
around with the shifting. What component is failing me?
Either the trans itself or a shift solenoid. You will need to have it diagnosed. The CD4E trans in the Escape isn't the most robust and it needs periodic fluid changes every 15-30K miles for longevity. Have a reputable trans shop look it over, and stay away from the chain shops?
