Slow to engage in drive and reverse

Asked by Mar 01, 2011 at 07:46 PM about the 2001 Ford Escape XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi there everyone. I have a 2001, v6 4WD. I recently had the trans. out to fix a bushing problem in the driven gear that was taking out the left front axle seal every 100 miles. Now it is slow to engage into drive or reverse and I have to rev the engine to about 1200 rpm to do so . after that everything works perfect. Fluid levels are good. could this be sensor related. thanks in advance for any help.

1 Answer

I would take it back to whoever worked on it and have them fix the problem they created.
