    • Most commonly the torque converter is failing. If you have a scanner you can monitor TCC application, RPM or input speed (Impeller) and output speed (Turbine not Vehicle Speed) and look for "slip" or the difference between the input and output speeds and see if that matches what you are feeling.
    • The fasteners they show should be clips that attach to the backside of the panel and snap into the body. There may be about 6-8 of them but you can't see them until the panel is out. Remove anything that is screwed to the panel and anything overlapping the panel and then you literally just pull the panel out. 
    • Hey all, I have a 2015 Escape SE with the Sync headunit.  The headdunit in my truck does not have navigation.  I have searched all over (this forum, YouTube,etc.) and I cannot find a way (if it is even possible) to connect my wife Samsung S7 to her Sync headunit so she can use Google Maps (or something else) on her phone and have it show on the Sync headunit.  Is this even possible to do?  I am not 100% sure what headunit she has, but I think it's the Sync2? Any and all assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!
    • Hello all, I am new to this forum (not forums in general).  I recently bought my mother's 2015 Escape SE (she has the 2.0L EcoBoost in it) for my wife to replace her 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander.  The Escape only has 9,696 miles on it when I bought it (mom's health isn't the best and her Dr. told her it was best not to drive anymore so...).  Currently, I myself have a 2011 GMC ACadia Denali and a 1992 25th Anniversary Chevrolet Camaro Z\28.  I am hoping to learn a lot about the Escape on here.
    • My Chilton's manual shows fasteners holding the rear trim panel.  They don't exist on my car.  So, how do I get the panel off to get to the upper shock mount?
    • Hello, Name's Mike. My wife recently gave me her 2011 Escape 2.5 front drive. I got rid of my old chevy van but I still need something to haul stuff around. So I took out the back seat bottoms, flipped the backs down, covered all the back area with a rubber mat now I have a decent wagon. So far I put on a set of 235/70R16s, a trailer hitch, a new switch behind the dash so I have all fan speeds and stuck some wire down the little drain holes so the moonroof doesnt leak. Next up is a new set of shocks on the back. I like this little car. 160+ miles, probably good for another 100. Well I guess I'll head to the forums, check out some shock info.
    • I have a question about what's going on with my first gen. It's a 2002 xlt v6 auto 4x4. 122xxx miles.  1. The Torque convertor lockup in 4th is pretty rough. I've heard that this is from the convertor slipping on lock up and pretty common. With OD off it's not nearly as noticable but that could be from the RPM difference.  2. Recently, when it locks it will sometimes make a scraping type sound or hesitate to lock. It feels like a gear slip.  I've owned it for less than a year so the maintenance history is not know but everything looks like it was babied by the P.O. anyone have this issue that could point me where to start? I love my car and would rather not rip the gears up or something.
