Used transmissions for 2000 Ford Escorts can be found online at The Auto Channel, Car Part and eBay. In addition, many local salvage yards sell power train parts for vehicles over the phone or online.
Purchasing used car parts is an excellent way to save money, as long as the buyer exhibits caution during the transaction. Only buy used parts from vendors that accept returns and exchanges. A reputable dealer or salvage yard should allow the part to be exchanged for a working part in the event of a failure. Try to develop a relationship with the used-part dealer. The used market is more easily influenced through relationships because the wholesale cost of the part is very low.
