Some 2009 Ford Escape and Mercury Mariner vehicles equipped with the 6F35 automatic transmission and built before 10-29-08 may exhibit a loss of transmission fluid from the dipstick tube area.

This may be due to an overfill condition. A new transmission dipstick with added minimum and maximum lines is now available to easily determine proper fluid level.

If you don’t have reference lines on the dipstick, it’s easy to accidentally overfill the transmission. The new dipstick features easy-to-read reference marks.

If the vehicle was built before 10-29-08, and if the dipstick does not feature minimum and maximum lines indicated, replace the dipstick with P/N 7A020.
