blown hose from radiator to transmission.. Cause and affect? how can i fix it?
I have a 2001 ford escape. We went to town a couple of days ago. The transmission (automatic) started shifting kind of funny while going down the interstate at 65 mph. we took first exit and got out and transmission fluid was pouring from under the suv. we towed the escape home and started looking for the problem. I saw the intercooler line had come loose from the radiator and drained the transmission. we replaced the line and refilled the trans. now al the gears are messed up. Park, the vehicle lunges forward for a split second. there is no reverse. Neutral the vehicle moves forward like its in drive. and the drive gears are as usual, but with very little power. we replaced the neutral safety switch and still nothing. any ideas? can this be fixed, or does tranny need a rebuild or replace?
