Ok, just wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem. I was driving my 91 lx with a 1.9 automatic, and all of a sudden the engine started to get hot and the transmission started to shift weird. It would start to slip and shift erratic. I thought it may have a leak in a line. The next day, i checked the tranny fluid. It was full, and still a clean red and no burnt smell. So i took the car for a drive. And every thing was just fine. It is kind of frustrating. It is hard to fix something that seems to be working.
Also, on a side note. My fan is not always coming on. Whitch of the 3 temp senders controls the fan. It will come on when i run the code scanner like it should. But not on its own.
And no, the car was not getting hot because of the fan not working. I was on the highway.

well this is a stab in the dark, but clean your sensors, that might help it. i know my escort started to shift hard, it was simply a loose linkage. Yet then again i use the ATX tranny, which has some weird linkage set up. Im not to familiar with the 2nd or 3rd gen scorts.
