Have an '01 Escape V6 with automatic transmision problems. Happened
soon after changing transmision fluid. Hard engagement from rest, rough
1-2 shift as well. 2-3 and 3-4 shifts ok. 70,000 miles. Dealer service
dept. says 'probably an internal seal' whatever that means. Changed
fluid, no improvement. If anybody can recommend a good transmission
shop in the Nassau/Suffolk county (NY) area, I'd greatly appreiciate
Change the fluid again, unless you used a flushing machine to do
the change, WBMA. I'll bet you have some gunk messing things up
internally. Tranny fluid is highly detergent and new fluid
cleans the tranny. Flushing machines flush the tranny will new
fluid to loosen the dirt and remove it before refilling the

Might be TV cable adjustment (from the throttle to the trans). If it is too
tight it will cause harsh and late shifts. Too loose and insufficient trans
line pressure will cause slipping and damage. Maybe they misadjusted this
when they changed your fluid.
