2010 Ford Escape Q&A
2010 Ford Escape Question: What could cause my car to sputter and then die.
Last night I didnt think my car was idling correctly. It was acting almost like it was misfiring but once you gave it more gas and got going it was fine. This morning I went out to start it and it sputters and dies and giving it more gas does not get it going at all. - wjl3evatt
Many things can cause this.The best and easiest starting point is a good visual inspection for anything obvious like split/collapsed pcv hose or vacuum hoses,remove air filter and look inside the mass air flow sensor for foreign objects like dead bugs,leaves,etc. and get a fuel sample.And of course retrieve dtcs if any. - bmdouble
