    04 Explorer transmission

    Iam assuming you have a manual trans by the way you are describing your issues, and ive never seen a manual trans with a "dip stick". If you have a auto trans, and i you dont see a dip stick its because they are filled and drained from the drain plug on the bottom of the pan, and yes you can do...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    Yea, I kinda agree with you 65Val, when my customers bring in their mustangs etc. for suspension mods, they sometimes ask if we can make the car ride smooth, etc. And my response to them is go buy a Cadillac, and I think its a given that the Escapes are actually SUV's and the ride is ging to be...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    OMG dude, thats a big time wake up call, I knew it was bad, but wow, I didnt know it was that bad. I also work on cars for a living (like you do) and of course we do the modifications on American products, and one thing I learned was, ASE stood for "Ask Someone Else", and yes I thought having a...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    Yup, I couldnt agree with you more. Its really sad whats happening to America (from politics all the way down to the economy). And I think we both are touching on subjects that affect America as a whole, something has to be done to change things so we can get the American's back into American...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    OMG.....this is really sad, I hope Ford did something about it, and I hope a good aftermarket shock company did something better then the OE specs, and to think the Escape is one of the top demand compact and listed mini SUV's out there, and the way the asian's has stepped up the plans for their...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    Yea, I have to agree about the "selective" nature of the A/C systems in those things, because its true how some A/C systems can handle the heat and some just cant kep up, and I know first hand how it gets bad since im in Hawaii, I even thought about getting into a Fusion, but damn, some just was...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    Thats true, but as long as the thing has some kind of Asian decal, stamping, badge, etc. I aint buying or even driving it....but then again, you are right that the Asian vehicles are being built here in America and providing Americans with jobs, etc. I guess im over reacting, but I like knowing...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    Thanks for the feedback guys : ) Yea, still thinking about it, and I realize the newer models have anti-roll over assistance and the interiors look alot better. Not sure about going to all wheel or even 4X4 since they then to consume more gas then just regular front wheel drive. It's to bad...

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    Hmmmmmmm..... I think you must be confused with the Exployer when they were made with the Firestone tires way back then, unless I missed something about the tires with the Escapes, im sure Ford wouldnt screw up again, and ive been keeping up with the Excapes as much as possible.

    Whats the best Escape ever made and why?

    Hi Guys, Just wanted to start a interesting tread and the main reason is I was thinking on getting one myself. And please dont hesitate if you think any of them shouldnt have even been made but please give a justifyable and credible reason why.
