Also it flucuates in and out of gear. I have to continualy push more gas in or it will slip out of gear.
Is this the gas filter or the tansmition, and how much would it cost to fix.
Well this will be a tough one as you don't do a very good job of explaining yourself. I'll assume you have a '93 Escort, 1.9L, auto trans. I'll also assume the engine is running okay because you don't state otherwise.
If I have made all the right assumptions the first thing to check, as with any auto trans problem, is the trans fluid level, fluid condition and filter condition. Then go from there.
So now how much does it cost to fix. Unfortunately my crystal ball isn't working today. Without knowing what's wrong how could you possibly expect someone to estimate the cost to repair. If it's just a clogged filter you're looking at under $30 to do it yourself, probably around $75 at a shop.
If you will try to provide some useful information I'll be more than happy to do the same.
