1999 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


I keep getting check engine soon light.
The transmission is burning fluid and I have to flush the transmission fluid out every 4-6 weeks and then the light comes on again.
I received a quote from a transmission place in Hayward, CA for a rebuilt transmission for $1600. Another place quoted me $1700 for a used transmission. The car still runs okay, but I keep putting in about $100 every month for flushing the transmission fluid. I've had a fairly good run with this car, and it's time to get a newer vehicle and I plan to keep the Escort as a backup. Still, car needs some work, though. Car has Automatic Transmission and not 5-Speed Manual as indicated when I selected the model.
