Ford Escape QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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.

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!
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!

somehow my EGR valve blew a hole in it, I was able to drive it home with a lack of power, it would get up to about 40 mph, about 10 miles. No overheating no engine or oil light. After I replaced the EGR and restarted the car, it made a loud squealing from the water pump area and overheated. I changed the water pump and thermostat and still have the squeal and no power. I tried to drive it and it over heated and lost all power, would idle but would not go at all. after letting it set I was able to limp it home slowly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
What causes it to flash? Is this a dangerous condition?

The drain hose goes down from the ceiling down the right side of the windshield through the dash and ends in a little 90 degree plastic knuckle that goes through the wheel well...THAT little 90 degree angle is plugged and causes the right side interior to FLOOD when it rains or when going through a car wash! Which is how I found out it was plugged up! Fun..Fun..!. HOW can I unplug it?! I have the hose pulled off (and don't know HOW I'll ever get it put back On to that 90 degree angle knuckle...I'd have to have an arm like ET...) and I put it out the passenger window so it drains out that way when it rains. BUT HOW do I fix the stupid thing!??
