Reported by 97EscortBob for the Ford Escort

Heater core developed relatively minor leak & despite preventative fix per recall 02v323000 there was some electrical shorting occurring in the Integrated Air Bag Module located directly below the heating unit containing the heater core. Upon pulling out entire dash to replace heater core I observed that a flimsy plastic cover was indeed placed over the IABM per the recall. However, the job was poorly done and the cover was partially crunche...

2011 Ford Expedition King Ranch with 22,000 miles was gushing transmission fluid while driving. The entire back of the truck was covered with this fluid. Transmission began slipping and the powertrain light came on. Ford has had my vehicle for 1 week stating they need to replace the transmission pump. But they weren't sure if that was even the problem. Although the vehicle is under warranty, they refuse to provide me with a replacement ve...

I noticed over a time putting gas in the vehicle, became a time consuming process. About every $5.00 the the gas pump would stop pumping, and sometimes gas would spew out. After investigation I found that the EVAP Purge Control Solenoid has a screen that can get clogged with dust from the charcoal canister. Which will not allow air to escape out of the tank durring refueling. The EVAP canister is located underneath driverside between the frame...

noticed at about 87,000 miles that I had some oil spots under the truck when parked. Turns out the dipstick tube rotted out and needed to be replaced. It's all over the internet, but Ford won't issue a recall on it. Paid the dealer about $350 to replace. UGH!

Noticing for a couple of months a burning smell coming into the car, at random times. Sometimes very strong, enough to have to drive with the windows down. Took into dealer and discovered the PTU (the thing off the transmission that powers the AWD) was leaking fluid, possibly dripping on exhaust causing the burning smell. Shop said parts inside were possibly worn or broken and the fluid was very burned. Covered under drive train warranty thank...

the pins will pull out of the connector for the transceiver ring,the connector is under the dash right above where your shins are.the wires pull out due to tilting the steering wheel and not enough slack in the harness.

The adhesive holding the glass convertible window gives out and the window delaminates from the outer convertible shell. I used 3M VHB 2-sided adhesive tape (the same type that is used to hold glass panels to the outside of skyscrapers) to hold the window back in. It worked great, but long term effectiveness is still unknown.

when filling up the nozzle will click and will make it hard to fill with fuel. Ford had a service bulletin that called for a replacement of the fuel tank with a revised tank that has a larger inlet at the tank. this will solve the issue as I have done dozens of them.
