Repair or Replace? Other options
Good morning -
I have a 2001 Escape XLT and after getting stuck in the snow it stopped going in reverse. It will shift into gear and the RPMs move but the wheels don't turn. We tried popping it into neutral to push and it wouldn't budge. It drives forward and will push in reverse but won't drive in reverse or push in neutral. Any suggestions on what it could be? I've been told I burned out the Reverse Gear in my trans and I've googled and found it could be a linkage issue. Is it worth the repair or should I just scrap and look for a new car?
