2006 Ford Escape Hybrid Problems

The hybrid models have a coolant pump that cools control electronics. The pump can fail or spin slowly, which causes a Check Engine Light to illuminate and complete engine shut down.

An abnormal noise may develop from the transfer case. At this time parts are not available to repair internal damage to this type of transfer case, replacement is the only option. It is not uncommon for irregular tire wear to cause a similar noise. Diagnoses should be performed to confirm the actual cause of the driveline noise. Tire noise can be reduced by rotating the tires at least every 5000 miles.

Hard driving conditions, including quick starts from a stop and hard acceleration up hills, can cause the rear motor mount to crack. The broken motor mount needs to be replaced, otherwise damage to the hybrid drive system may result.

My cousin's husband is a mechanic and seems to think it may be the transfer case. I was wondering the estimated cost of this repair.

I have a Ford Escape Hybrid that is due for a check-up. My warranty has recently expired so I'd like to find a mechanic to take my car to instead of the dealer. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good mechanic in LA that is qualified to work on hybrids? Thanks for your help!

Was wondering how much it is to replace the recharging battery, that makes it the Hybrid.

Not completley cost effective to pur...

My 2006 Escape hybrid just passed 140,000 miles and still purrs like a kitten. I took it to the Ford dealer last month for a complete check-up. They couldn't find a single thing wrong or that needed other than routine service.
