If you have extended warranty, you'll be fine. If not, sit down with a stiff drink. I had the exact same symptoms and was told it was the torque converter. I have the extended warranty, which also provided me with a rental. So when, after three working days, I picked up my 2006 Escape, and heard the cost of the repair, I was sooo glad I was covered. I don't know if you are in the States or in Canada and if that would make any difference, but, are you sitting, the final bill would have been between CDN $5200.00 to $5400.00. All the best to you.
