Hi

I have a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid w/ AWD. Yesterday, after i turned a corner I heard a rattling noise, maybe a little grinding. Only heard it when I was coasting. I drove it home & parked it, and noticed a leak right in the middle between the front wheels. Is this the transmission? Wondering if I should have it towed, and whether to take it to a Ford dealer or regular mechanic.

Thanks!

Had it towed to dealer....they said something broke inside the PTU causing the housing to crack, leaking fluid. 3-5 days to get the part and $1,400 to fix. No longer under warranty.

now i know what a PTU is!
