2001 Ford Escape 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 108000 miles
I started having problems with the transmission on my 2001 Ford Escape. When I put it into drive the rpm's rev very high like it is starting in high gear. When I manually place it in first gear I can start to drive. I can then shift to second and then to drive which allows me to drive the car, although it feels like I am going from second to fourth gear in that process. Reverse works OK. I took it to a repair shop and they told me the transmission needs to be replaced. Do you agree? What would it cost to rebuild the transmission? The shop told me it would cost between $3200 and $3800 to replace it with a rebuilt one (they won't rebuild mine).
