I am new to this site, I just bought myself a Ford Escape 2006 from Japan. Its a really nice vehicle. I love it, however I need some help with a few needs. One is spare parts. My Ford Escape was made in USA for the Japanese market. I tried getting parts from a ford dealer but they just do not see my VIN/Chasis: LFACXZTVX62000008 and the model: ABA-LFAAJ. Can someone please guide me to where I can get parts for this vehicle. I cant speak Japanese language.
Secondly, I notice that my second gear has no power when climbing a hill. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem?
