In May 2014 had purchased a 2001 Ford Escape XLT. There was no issues with Transmission and Engine and always checked the fluids. May 2015 driving on I-75 north headed to work, the Ford Escape started to lose acceleration. Pulled vehicle over the shoulder. No burning oil in engine or trans. Put car into park and turned off engine. Restarted the car and put it into drive, no movement. Only engine rreving. Put gear into 1,2 and R. Car did not move. Had it towed the next day home. Transmission fluid was red but a little brown. Transmission never slipped. Sometimes it jolted a little bit. Mechanic friend came to home next day. The gear shifter cable was loose. Popped it back in. He was able to move the gear in all different gears. No movement. Said tranny is gone. Is that the case?
