2009 Ford Escape ProblemsCheck Engine Light and Hesitation or Stumbling While Driving
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.
The common problem for ignition misfires are ignition coils going bad. Replacement of the bad ignition coil is necessary. These should be fixed as soon as a problem is detected. Otherwise the misfire can cause damage to other components.
2009 Ford Escape Questionshow do you change a pressure sensor (1 answer)
everything else is new except the preasure sensor
we have replaced :pump, censor, tank and checked the dash for bad circuits
the needle goes from empty to only 3/4 full but the fuel in the tank is full ???
The vehicle ran great for the first 29 days, then on the 30th day my check engine light came on (started to flash) and it would start shaking and not accelerate. Dealer said it was a fuel injector, which would cost $485 to replace. Does this sound right, or should I make them replace all of them?...
2009 Ford Escape RecallsPower Steering Assist Loss
Due to a software issue that affects operation of the torque sensor, the electric power steering may stop functioning. This would make it difficult to steer the vehicle. Dealers will reprogram the power steering control module and instrument cluster module free of charge to resolve the concern. Dealers will also replace affected electric steering components as necessary upon inspection free of charge.
