2010 Ford Escape Problems

Ignition Misfires

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.

Check 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.

Abnormal Noise From Driveline

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.

2010 Ford Escape Recalls

Fuel Delivery Module Leaks Fuel

The fuel delivery module (FDM) may crack and leak fuel. Dealers will replace the FDM flange with one that has a redesigned fuel supply port free of charge to resolve the concern.

Power 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.

The Vehicle May Roll Without Warning

The park rod guide retention pin may not have been properly installed in nineteen vehicles. These vehicles may not properly engage the transmission in the "Park" position. If  this occurs and the parking brake is not set, unintended vehicle movement may result, increasing the risk of a crash. This recall is expected to begin by May 28, 2010. The Ford recall number is 10C12.

Purchased my Escape in Sept/Oct 2009. It currently has almost 65k miles on it and I learn that the a/c compressor, condenser, and accumulator is bad. I received an estimate from Ford and they want almost $2,000 to fix. I think this is ridiculous. They put defective parts in the car. I have a 2001 Toyota Celica with over 170k miles and the a/c is running just fine. The only thing I've repl...
