I just bought a used 94 Ford Escort. It is and automatic but it sticks between 2nd and third, and runs the rpm high. Now if I start in Low and shift it into to Drive at just the right time it works fine.
I thought maybe it as a vaccum hose. But not sure now. I was told if you can shift it up to drive then it is the transmission. Do you have any ideas how I can fix it. I have to do it my self.
It also seem to have like a rubbing sound on the drive front side. Caliper, rotor and brakes pads look fine. Could it be the bearing.
I have to fix this my self. Husband got hurt on the job, or he would. I have fixed many different things on cars but bearing I have not.
Sure hope you can anwer these for me. With him being off work. Having a rough time and can't afford to take it in or have it get worse.
