I have a 1996 Ford Escort hatchback automatic with 192,500 miles on it.
Just recently I started having an issue with the transmission. It
seems that when accelerating, it misses 3rd gear until I let up on the
throttle, at which point it finally upshifts. This is under normal
acceleration, nothing hard/fast. It doesn't happen every time, but
most of the time. Would it do any good to replace the transmission
fluid or is it pretty much done for?
