Ford Escape Hybrid Problems
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.
Hard driving conditions, including quick starts from a stop and hard acceleration up hills, can cause the rear motor mount to crack. The broken motor mount needs to be replaced, otherwise damage to the hybrid drive system may result.
Ford Escape Hybrid Questions
I am being told it the water pump and actuator.
This happened on the freeway after driving about 20 minutes outside it was dry and about 60 degrees F. After I safely coasted to the shoulder and cried a little, it started back up with no indication it had gone dead. Is this a sign of something bad?
Should I replace all the rod bearings even if they feel tight? or should I use Plasigauge on each one to be sure?
What should the crankshaft diameter be where the rod bearings connect and what plasigauge reading is acceptible using standard bearings?

With gas prices going up in this State as of 1st of 2011, this little 'honey' has become more valuable to me. Headlights are exceptionally bright' brighter than my 2009 Ford Explorer. Not completley cost effective to pur...
My 2006 Escape hybrid just passed 140,000 miles and still purrs like a kitten. I took it to the Ford dealer last month for a complete check-up. They couldn't find a single thing wrong or that needed other than routine service.
