2002 Ford Escape (Manual) Slips Sign In

So when I accelerate on a highway, maybe when i go above 2nd gear I notice that my gear slips. It may be a bad transmission but i notice that when i lightly get up to speed it doesn't slip at all. When i press down hard enough, maybe like 3/4 of the pedal to the floor i notice it slipping. It doesnt annoy me at all except when im trying to get speed fast.. which i rarely have to do.

Is there any suggestions?

or some kind of liquid that i need?

Sounds like it's ready for a rebuild.

Probably needs a clutch job. If you do a clutch job, make sure the flywheel is resurfaced for a quality job.

Oh yeah, skipped right over the manual part. Wasn't even paying attention to the title.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to change the rear main seal while you're in there. Cheap parts but you have to pull that all off to get to it anyway. You'll be waiting for the machine shop to surface the flywheel, so you'll have the free time to swap the seal. I always change them at clutch or trans time myself. The seal is already 11 years old now. How much longer till it leaks?
