08 Escape transmission replacement?
- I have an 08 escape FWD automatic 3.0 v6 XLT 176,000 miles . And 2 years ago the transmission was grinding into and out of 2nd hard shift into 4. I had 2 bands replaced in the transmission. Shifted fine until now, its slipping, from 2nd to 3rd up down up 4,000rpm and then to 4th. A new and improved guts transmission is $4,000 installed. Would a new transmission work right with a 176,000 mile engine? If I have a new radiator/ alternator same time. Would it last? (Taken care of). Be worth the money/time it lasts?
Not worth it, even if the replacement transmission turns out OK the rest of that thing is going to be falling apart soon. Time to look for a replacement vehicle.
That vehicle is at the end of its life. I would not sink money into it.
