How Ford's Engine Stop/Start System Affects Transmissions

How Ford’s Engine Stop/Start System Affects Transmissions

Learn about the parts affected including changes made to the main transmission fluid pump, and more.

2018 and later Ford Escape vehicles equipped with a 1.5 L Eco-Boost, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine or the 2L VCTi engines, and the 6F35 transmission, have an engine stop/start system. The stop/start feature can be disabled by the driver and will remain disabled after each key cycle until reactivated by the driver. Some Ford Fusion and Edge models will also have the engine stop/start feature. The reason for this was to improve fuel economy and lower tailpipe emissions.
