it is possibly the steering stops.just lube them with grease.have someone stand beside the vehicle and slowly backup,maybe they can pinpoint it if it is not the steering stops.
more than likely it is an internal failure,have seen it before and the trans will have to be torn down for an estimate.have a good shop check it out and they will more than likely give you a price to tear it down to find the cause.
let me guess,p0340. it is located just under and to the left of the throttle body,but you will have to replace the synchronizer as well because it is the root cause of the sensor failing due to the bushings failing and causing the top of the synchro to walk and hit the sensor.
did they test the charging system? All I can tell you is that I replace ALOT of alternators on escape v-6,they are kind of a pain to replace,but I have my own method that has been perfected over time.have a good shop check it out and give you an estimate.
check the coil output voltage.lift the plug wire off of the coil one by one.chances are that one or more of them will have low or no spark.
check the water valve where the coolant lines enter the vehicle at the firewall/bulkhead.
sound like you may have an injector partially stuck open.have a good shop do an injector flow test,it can be done at a ford dealership for sure without having to remove the injectors to do the test.if you really want to figure it out yourself,try to swap the #3 injector with another cylinder.if the miss goes to that cylinder then there you have it.
p0420-catalyst efficiency below minimum threshold bank1.this dtc should not have any bearing on your no start concern.do you have fuel pressure?spark? crank normally.give some more info and we can help.
well,if you are having a concern with the clutch or hydraulic portion of it,you would have a concern in every gear as a general rule.but it doesn't hurt to check the clutch master cylinder reservoir fluid level.if it is low,look under the truck at the slave cylinder for leakage.or you just have a synchro or internal trans concern.
if your plugs have been replaced less than 60,000 miles ago,just replace the #2.that's is just my opinion,not what the manufacturer recommends.
