The engine light from my 2003 Ford Escape come up with a code P0403 which indicates a faulty EGR Valve. I replaced the EGR Valve, Selenoid Valve and the EGR Sensor with new ones. I reset the engine light by eraising the code with a scanner. Once the start the car the engine light came right back. is there any advice reagding what may cause this to happen after replacing the faulty parts all together. Please advice.
Power steering but belt not wet or greasy I think it something else
the brakes bounce until the abs light comes on then they work good. this happens everytime i shut the car off
tried using other remote,and tried unlocking from driver's side door. It will occassionally open, but not very often
Nobody was near the car or the key fob that has the panic button
I have had the vehicle scanned, because I was told it was a bad door sensor, and replaced the gate (both sensors) and it still does it. Scanned again and no codes came up. If I leave the vehicle unlocked it does not go off. Only if I lock all the doors with the key fob. And it always happens in about an hour from locking the vehicle. Also wondered if there was an easy way to find out of all the door and hood sensors if there was an easier way to determine what is wrong. It did say while scanned there was low voltage to the computer...but the vehicle was running and the tech didn't understand that. The door ajar light does come on when the vehicle doors are completely closed. This used to happen once in awhile, but now it is all the time, with the alarm going off.
On many long drives in hot weather when I have stopped briefly and turned off the engine, it will not start up again for about 30 minutes. Has happened many times but dealer cannot find a problem and has no idea what the problem is even though it has happened over several years.
My timing belt was just replaced along with the timing idler pulley, timing belt tensioner, serpentine belt, tensioner and idler pulley, spark plugs, and valve cover gasket. It drove great yesterday but this morning when I was taking my son to school the engine started knocking. It does this idling and at slow speeds. Once driving the noise disappears. Does anyone have any suggestions on what this may be?
