Ford Escape Repair and Maintenance
A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Ford Escape
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.
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.
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.

Ford Escape Recalls
Wiring splices to the manifold absolute pressure sensor may be faulty and provide improper signals to the engine's processor. This can cause an engine stall or hesitation. Dealers will replace the current crimped splices with new splices free of charge to resolve the concern.
For a vehicle that has had a remanufactured Ford automatic transmission installed, the shift lever bolt may be loose, allowing disengagement of the shift lever from the transmission. Dealers will inspect the transmission and either tighten the shift lever bolt or replace the shift lever assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The Restraint Control Module (RCM) is the "brains" behind the airbag system. Portions of the module are coated to help prevent moisture intrusion. The coating can crack and when exposed to humidity the printed circuit board may short circuit. This could cause one or more of the airbag system components not to function as expected in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Replacement parts are currently not available, a second notification letter will be sent when they are and dealers will perform the necessary repairs.
