2006 Ford Escape Problems

The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor tends to fail. The DPFE sensor monitors function of the EGR valve by measuring pressure changes in the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Symptoms of a failing DPFE sensor are hesitation or stumbling when driving along with illumination of the Check Engine Light.

AC cuts out when driving uphill. It seems like when I accelerate on the gas while the AC is on, the AC then stops blowing through the front vents and get rerouted to the dash vents next to the windsheild. Please assist.

On some front wheel drive hybrid vehicles, the intermediate shaft may not have been heat treated properly and may fracture. If this happens, the transmission will be unable to transmit power to the wheels and hold the vehicle when shifted into park, which could result in a crash. Dealers will inspect the drivetrain intermediate shaft and replace it if necessary. The recall began October 23, 2006. The Ford recall number is 06S44.

Ford recalls 2006 E150, E250, E350 Escape, Expedition, F150, Ranger, Taurus, Lincoln Navigator, Mercury Mariner, and Mercury Mountaineer due to a possible lack of lubricant on the wiper motor output shaft gear.
