Hi I am new on here..I have to say that this site has been extremely informative!!! I also have a question..I am buying an 01 Escape 3.0L 4x4..I am picking it up on Friday actually (was supposed to be LAST Friday but just before I picked it up both the front manifold converter assy and the rear cat just after the flex section clogged up solid..luckily they are going to fix it with OEM parts @ no cost to me)..its got 130k on it which is pretty high (its in great shape though) and I have researched common problems and the only one that really worries me is the somewhat common CD4E transmission problems...I am just curious if anyone has found ways to head off perspective problems and for preventative maintenance (i.e. fluid additives or anything else)...I was also wondering if I should upgrade the transmission cooler with an aftermarket one? Or is the factory one (if it has one) sufficient? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!! Oh and pics of my Escape will be up soon! Thanks!
