There are times that they will not lock or unlock! using the inside button or even the key pad?

Last night I didnt think my car was idling correctly. It was acting almost like it was misfiring but once you gave it more gas and got going it was fine. This morning I went out to start it and it sputters and dies and giving it more gas does not get it going at all.

The light comes frequently again shortly after clearing.
Is there a known common problem giving that OBD code?

When stopping, the engine sometimes fails to idle and dies. It will restart ok but no error lites.

I started my vehicle in -40 weather this morning and it revved really high and started blowing oil out the bottom of the vehicle. What the he** did I wreck and is it an expensive fix?

I have replaced the O rings between the upper manifold before and when I took it apart the last tine there was fuel outside the area where the O rings were on # 2 and #5 cylinders.

the theft light flashes and the motor acts like it wants to stall.i take the O.D. off and the rpms go up and it runs better. i have been told that a loose battery cable will do this, but i have checked the cables and even put a new battery in. the only thing is, the engine light has never come on during this weird event

I have a constant low vacuum at the EGR valve less than 5 Hg at idle, which it seems is enough to move the diaphragm in the ERG valve. I replaced the EGR solenoid, and I have voltage at the solenoid plug. However if I disconnect the Solenoid plug I still have vacuum at the EGR. I removed the EGR vacuum hose and plugged it, put a vacuum Gage in the system at the intake manifold I get about 17Hg. Reconnect the EGR vacuum line and it drops to about 15Hg. I am stumped

Car drove fine last night. This morning car won't turnover just a click. Noticed anti-freeze under vehicle in driveway

The engine act like it was cold but as I drove it the engine light flashed. It acted like it was struggling to increase speed it leveled out and then when I came to a stoplight, it idle roughly. When accelerated it began the roughness again. I had no problems yesterday. Whats going on!

I changed all the vacuum lines, changed the ERG, and solenoid pump. The truck stumbles once i put the vacuum line on the ERG valve(runs smooth with out the vacum line on the EGR vavle). Can anyone suggest a system to look at?

This has been a great vehicle for us but now it is idling rough in the mornings but is ok after warmed up. She said there was an unusual smell coming from the exhaust during the rough idle. Does this sound like catalytic converter gone bad? If so, how much would it cost to replace??

total break down july 2011, new pcm installed no problems since, check engine light came on Sat. so I took it to the dealership and the code was pcm again, they said there was no drivability issues, but the car didn't start today. It would turn over then immediatly turn off. After three tries it stayed on, but this seems like a drivability issue to me!

When you turn the vehicle on it start to make this knocking/rattling noise. It was only happening every now and then and when parked. But in the last few day it has gotten to where as soon as you turn the truck on it starts. Someone told me it was the compressor, but I'm not sure.

my escape will start up intermitently and when it doesnt start i wait about 20-30 min and it starts. now after about two weeks now my car wont start at all. only code i keep getting p0443. but i was wondering if the recent recalls have created this problem. new abs fuse wiring, and throttle recall
