I have cleaned the MAF sensor, tested for a week, saw no improvement, then got a new MAF sensor, installed it and got worse gas mileage for a week. Then, I put the old sensor back in, got better gas mileage temporarily for a few days, about 29mpg, then it dropped to about 25-26 average pretty steadily for the rest of the time. It has not gone back up from that, so I am suspecting an open thermostat or bad temp sensor(s). I have only owned this for about a month, and it has only 83,800 miles on it. I will check the heater tomorrow morning to see if it is getting hot, or not. This is supposed to get 31mpg on the highway and 34mpg in town, but it has never gotten close to that. There seems to be very little on the internet that addresses this issue, but I have seen others who have had the same problem with no resolution.
It has always been this way. Service dept. at dealership has no answer.

I have a 2007 Ford Escape hybrid with 9400 miles. I am wondering if there is an average mileage amount that this hybrid battery usually dies or need to be replaced?
Hybrid electric engine is not functioning at low speed or when stationary
This 2.5 L Atkinson-cycle engine is paired to el. Motor and HV-batteries
We had issues with the engine shutting down and getting the message to "Stop safely now" so we took it in and had the cooling pump replaced under the recall but the problem is still happening. We have 2 things that come up 1 is " hot engine temperature" then "stop safely now" will come on when trying to drive more then 30 minutes. We can't use the air or take to many hills or it happens more often and we live in FL where it's extremely hot and has a lot of bridges :/ any idea what it could be is it possible that we got a bad part?
It started last night, whenever I apply pressure to the gas pedal, the underside makes a chirp, the slower i go, the slower the chirp is. Is it a dry U joint? Or is it a tattle tale brake? When I am in park or neutral and rev the engine it does not chirp.
I was charging my a\c compressor and then I heard a clicking sound with a burnt smell. My a\c is no longer operating at a cold capacity.
