I recently had the battery changed in my 2006 Ford Escape. I took it to be inspected, but my car failed inspection as the monitors had not reset completely yet. The inspector told me that I needed to complete the drive cycle in order to pass inspection. Any idea how far or long I need to drive the car? Any tips? Thank you so much.

Twice in the last month. Hatchback door would not open. Appeared lock wasn't opening but not sure about that. Sprayed WD40 onlock mechanism. Working at present.

Are there special tools required to replace the serpentine belt on the 2005 ford escape?

No leaks and no smoke. What could be the problem?

I am having a problem with gas milage. I am getting roughly 9 miles per gallon in my Escape. Even under the worst driving conditions this is almost half of what I should get. I got new tires, changed the oil and air filter, new brakes, and I have no codes. Car seems to run perfectly. What can I do?

I put the refrigerant guage on Low side and it fluxuates from 5 psi to 60 psi. I can't get a good reading, because the clutch cycles on for 3 to 5 seconds and off for 3 to 5 seconds....Is this part normal? It blows warm air. I tried charging it, and I can see the line sweat, but only warm air comes out.
WHAT CAN IT BE?.....orifice or clutch?

The set screw that holds my shift nob fell out recently. There is an inner shaft of white plastic inside the shifter that I can't seem to put back to its original position and my Escape will not switch to overdrive. Is there a diagram somewhere where I can see the proper installation? Thank you.

This just started to occur. there are 77,000 miles on the vehicle. It only happens after heavy rain while the vehicle is parked. When I start to drive the "event" occurs and goes away after driving several miles.

The upper u-joint and steering shaft on my Escape needs to be replaced. I looking for a diagram or schematic so that I can do the repair. I am an experienced mechanic.

A couple of days ago my car stalled. Everything just when dead in my car. When I got the car to the repair shop they told me I needed a new alternator. They replaced the alternator and belt. Next day turned the car on and the battery light was on and after driving about a mile the car stalled again. They then told me I needed a new battery. They replaced battery. Car seems to be running fine, but the battery light still goes on when I turn car on. It flickers for about 5 minutes of driving and then eventually goes off. First question...did I need a new alternator in the first place or was it just a new battery that I needed. Second question...why does the battery light still come on?

I'm thinking it possibly might be that we need to reset the computer. I resently chaged the battery.

2005 Ford Escape Limited. Parked and not driven for 1 1/2 years. Battery dead and taken out to recharge. Car now starts but lights and all the panel intruments are inoperable. What's the problem here? Is this something that the Ford service people will need to examine and can fix without too much difficulty or expense? solutions? Thanks in advance for any insight.

Recently I have noticed a humming noise coming from the passenger rear of the vehicle. It seems to only make the noise when it is hot outside or when the vehicle is hot. It doesn't do it in the morning or when it is cool or cold outside. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

all the time

2003 Ford Escape due to failure to start without foot on the gas because of flooding out had IAC replaced at 32,000 miles again IAC replaced at 58,000 miles due to flooding out when started. 70,000 miles had throttle plate and air flow sensor cleaned and again at 91,000 miles. An inconsistent whinning noise occurs only at low speeds and only makes the noise when the tempertures are hot outside. On 4-2-11 Check engine light came on. Self diagonistic handheld instrument indicated emission control system leak-very small. Mechanics want to replace the IAC again. Whinning noise is so inconsistent that I have been unable to get it to a mechanic when it is occuring. Any ideas what can be going on? Thank you!
