2011 Ford Escape Problems
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.
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.
The car was missing with very low compression 45psi in #1. Did a leak down test but couldn't tell where it was leaking from. I just got the head off and one of the valves was burnt very slightly.

2011 Ford Escape Reviews
Bought this car new recently, love it except for one thing. It frequently has hesitation and surging. Mentioned it to the dealer but they basically blew me off and said something about putting more miles on it and "flex fuel is different" Now i have about 3500 miles on it and it still does it intermittently.
