Ford Escape Hybrid Problems

Coolant Pump on Hybrid May Fail and Cause CEL/Engine Shutdown

The hybrid models have a coolant pump that cools control electronics. The pump can fail or spin slowly, which causes a Check Engine Light to illuminate and complete engine shut down.

Abnormal Noise From Driveline

An abnormal noise may develop from the transfer case. At this time parts are not available to repair internal damage to this type of transfer case, replacement is the only option. It is not uncommon for irregular tire wear to cause a similar noise. Diagnoses should be performed to confirm the actual cause of the driveline noise. Tire noise can be reduced by rotating the tires at least every 5000 miles.

Check Engine Light With Code P0442, P0456, and/or P1450

The Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0442, P0456, and/or P1450. These codes are related to the EVAP system. Our technicians tell us that if no EVAP system faults are confirmed, updated software is available for the powertrain control module (PCM) which should correct this concern.

Ford Escape Hybrid Reviews

Overall, this has been a good reliable car so far. Not sure how it's going to do past 100,000 miles though as the power steering just failed this week (Nov 2014). And the heating / AC compressor failed in 2013 ($1,000+ repair). There was one owner of the car before me and she got all her repair and maintenance work done at the dealership here in Oregon. So far no other major problems but not lo...

And all my lights turn ...
Great vehicle have 5000 miles on it. Did have the 12 volt battery die after sitting unused for three days but believe I caused the issue by leaving a radar detector plugged into the 12 volt power port which I since have learned can keep the vehicles electronics from going to sleep thereby draining the battery
