I've been told it will take 11 hours of labor costs to replace the front oil pan gasket in my 2008 Ford Escape (V6). Is this typical? What takes 11 hours to do this repair?

When the seat was turned up to "5". Really smelled like something was burning.

I have.the ABS break light been on for a while had it checked and said to be faulty light. Now when letting off the break & having to step back them, the break locked up. yet while stepping on to break your thrown very fast i might add in to drive with out even on the gas. I almost ran into the car in front of me at Windy's! Please help I have no idea why this happened! Or what the cause may be!!!!

What's a good price to replace the 3 back spark plugs, wires, and coils?

A couple weeks ago, after washing car, discovered water pooling in the drivers side front. No water running down inside of door. Thinking drivers side door gasket is bad. Can this be fixed at home with minimal repair skills or this a big deal. Also need to know what parts to get. Dealer wants to do the job, I think $500 is ridiculous.

Have extended warranty but it will be Wednesday before I can get it to Ford Dealership. Will it hurt to drive on an approx. 450 mile trip. Makes noise going slow and coasting speed. Can not hear on high speed i.e. Interstate driving...

Driving on freeway and engine loss of power. Only able to go 40 mpr. Radiator tank on upper hose blew hole. Also blew a hole on egr. Engine running rough and jolting when accelerating while in park. Strong smell from exhaust burning my eyes.

ld it be the muffler no lights on just loud

Occurs 10 to 20 minutes after the AC is on.

Basically after I replaced everything and put everything back together as is was before, I turn on the truck and it revs up and down with problem, like if it missing gas or something, I give it gas and it clears out a little bit but when I take the foot off the gas, it sputters really bad about 2 or 3 times and shits off, now is worst that the misfire in cylinder 2 & 6 that it showed before.

Any suggestions?

I am in the beginning process of removing & replacing my alternator on my 2004 ford escape. I have to detach some electrical connectors but i can't seem to figure out how to on some of them. Then i get frustrated and they end breaking and i don't need that as my work is going to be most difficult as is. HELP!!!

106,000 miles

had to jump start this morning. not a problem. then later i was idling, it sputtered and died. No power. can't even roll up window. Instrument panel air bag light came on and emissions of course came on. Battery? Alternator? Help!!!

The engine light from my 2003 Ford Escape come up with a code P0403 which indicates a faulty EGR Valve. I replaced the EGR Valve, Selenoid Valve and the EGR Sensor with new ones. I reset the engine light by eraising the code with a scanner. Once the start the car the engine light came right back. is there any advice reagding what may cause this to happen after replacing the faulty parts all together. Please advice.

Power steering but belt not wet or greasy I think it something else

the brakes bounce until the abs light comes on then they work good. this happens everytime i shut the car off

tried using other remote,and tried unlocking from driver's side door. It will occassionally open, but not very often

Nobody was near the car or the key fob that has the panic button

I have had the vehicle scanned, because I was told it was a bad door sensor, and replaced the gate (both sensors) and it still does it. Scanned again and no codes came up. If I leave the vehicle unlocked it does not go off. Only if I lock all the doors with the key fob. And it always happens in about an hour from locking the vehicle. Also wondered if there was an easy way to find out of all the door and hood sensors if there was an easier way to determine what is wrong. It did say while scanned there was low voltage to the computer...but the vehicle was running and the tech didn't understand that. The door ajar light does come on when the vehicle doors are completely closed. This used to happen once in awhile, but now it is all the time, with the alarm going off.

On many long drives in hot weather when I have stopped briefly and turned off the engine, it will not start up again for about 30 minutes. Has happened many times but dealer cannot find a problem and has no idea what the problem is even though it has happened over several years.
