Ford Escape Problems
The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor tends to fail. The DPFE sensor monitors function of the EGR valve by measuring pressure changes in the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. Symptoms of a failing DPFE sensor are hesitation or stumbling when driving along with illumination of the Check Engine Light.
The common problem for ignition misfires are ignition coils going bad. Replacement of the bad ignition coil is necessary. These should be fixed as soon as a problem is detected. Otherwise the misfire can cause damage to other components.
Driving at night and within a few seconds first the lights kind of went dim then bright, next the radio goes off, then the dash goes out from left to right and the headlights go out. I am on a bridge going 50 mph with no lights and it is pitch dark with no shoulders at the end of the bridge on either side of the road it was very nerve racking. Lucky for me, a friendly driver comes along and lets me follow them to next rest stop at a snail pace...

Ford Escape Recalls
For a vehicle that has had a remanufactured Ford automatic transmission installed, the shift lever bolt may be loose, allowing disengagement of the shift lever from the transmission. Dealers will inspect the transmission and either tighten the shift lever bolt or replace the shift lever assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.
The Restraint Control Module (RCM) is the "brains" behind the airbag system. Portions of the module are coated to help prevent moisture intrusion. The coating can crack and when exposed to humidity the printed circuit board may short circuit. This could cause one or more of the airbag system components not to function as expected in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Replacement parts are currently not available, a second notification letter will be sent when they are and dealers will perform the necessary repairs.
The coolant pump for the hybrid system may fail, resulting in the hybrid system shutting down, and the vehicle losing power. Dealers will inspect and replace the original motor electronics coolant pump free of charge to correct the concern.
