2006 Ford Escape 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles
As my wife was coming off the interstate and approaching a stop light at the end of the ramp, the car starting jerking and upon stopping the car shut off. She was able to put the car in park and re-start the engine. If she put it in D, R, 2, or 1 the car would shut off. If put in Neutral, the car would run with no problems. When I got to it I noticed if I feathered the gas as I put the transmission in gear the car would take off and drive properly until I came to a stop. When I stop the car acts as if I am not pushing a clutch on a standard transmission and chokes down. Could the torque converter be the problem and if so, about how much would it cost for repair?
have the same problem?
