Thanks for this thread. I had the same engine fault - service now with the drop in Rpm, rough low idle at stop and throttle was very slow to accelerate . It's a 2013 with 2.0 liter ecoboost and so falls under the TSB 13-12-12 and the recall for the wiring splice.
My trouble is i presented this information to the dealership and they didn't seem to respond. They said there was no DTC so they tried sending me home with it. I don't want to risk losing engine power with my family on the freeway, so I pointed him to this thread.
Now my escape has been in the shop for 1 week. Saturday he told me they found a bad 02 sensor . I started a case with fords customer service, in case this problem returns and any harm comes to my family driving this vehicle.
The customer service regional manager told me I should see it from their side, if they don't prove to ford motor company what the issue is, they won't get paid which is why they tried to return it without fixing and diagnosing further. This is a major issue with the way their company is run, but should not impact my families safety resulting in engine failure while driving that is preventable with a simple wiring fix.
Can anyone help with info of how I can get these guys to repair my vehicle ?
