transmission problems : I was just driving my 2004 escape and all of a sudden the tranny started slipping and grabbing. it would go from not engaging at all to engaging and then going out again. when not engaging it was just like being in nuetral. I had it towed to the dealer and will find out something in the morning any ideas?

It will be interesting to see what they find, nevertheless, it depended on what type of engine you have because if you have the V6 with the tow package you have a transmission cooler to reduce wear and friction on your tranny. Unfortunately, other models without this option have been very problematic and require more frequent tranny oil changes.

Another idea I conjured up, would be the proper use of the overdrive system if you vehicle is equiped with one.

I await your report as well. Loose band, low fluid......etc!
