As you drive, it's the 2013 Ford Escape transmission that moves power from the engine to the wheels in a controlled way. If your vehicle isn't shifting or driving as it used to, it could be a fault inside this major powertrain component. A transmission failure is sometimes repairable, but a replacement can be less expensive and takes much less time. If that's the route you choose, find What You Need To Do The Job Right at AutoZone.
How Does an Automatic Transmission Work?
An automatic transmission converts the engine's constant rotation into power that can be channelled to the vehicle's wheels in a way it can be harnessed. Clutches, gears, and shafts allow the transmission to vary the engine's input for use at different speeds and RPM ranges. A valve body directs hydraulic fluid pressure through the correct channels to enable different functions, and a torque converter allows the transmission to spin freely when the engine is idling. It takes hundreds of transmission parts
working in sync for an automatic transmission to function.
