transmission pump

I have 2010 ford escape I am setting up to tow 4 dn. After reading about towing eacapes and such I am alittle leary. I have towed jeeps for years with no issues. My question is : I there a less expensive option for a tranny pump than the demco version. Any and all feedback would be greatly appteciated. I jest want to do this once.

Thanks again,
Poppa J

Your 2010 Escape is towable 4 down, as it is now, without a pump. The only thing nécessary to do are: Check with your Ford Dealer, I think that they remove a bit of tranny oil and change the tranny dipstick. Also check the procedure in your owners manual.

I believe you meant Remco rather than Demco. Demco doesn't make a tranny lube pump.

However, as jacmat says, you don't need one anyway. Remco makes a lube pump for the AWD version in case you want to exceed Ford's towing speed limit, but if you have the FWD Escape its not even needed for that reason.
