My Escape runs poorly after it rains (lack of power and misses). I've taken it to my mechanic and no codes come up on the scanner. It is only running on 2 converters. It doesn't happen every time. If we put the car in the garage to dry it out it's fine but as soon as it gets moisture from rain or snow it starts all over again. It just had a complete tune up about a month ago. Any ideas?
For some time, it was taking longer and longer for the headlamps to turn on automatically. Now they won't turn on at all, even by switching the function on and off at the rear view mirror. I must manually turn lights on with the headlamp switch at the steering column. Is there a bad light sensor somewhere, like in the rear view mirror, that I can replace? Occurs all the time.
The car makes the 5 beeps in a row abt 5 times them just stops & is fine. I have my seatbelt on so it can't be that, any idea what it is? Is it something I need to worry abt?
2003 ford escape, automatic. Has no check engine light on at all. Skips or misfires in drive & reverse but in Park its like it hesitates. Have changed the fuel filter, and vacuum lines. Have put fuel injector cleaner in. Have ran all the gas out & got new from another gas station. Have checked the first 3 coils, but haven't checked the others yet. Any ideas on what this problem could be? It's really racking my brain.
