  1. Parasitic drain

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    I have read and see something close to my issue. I used an obd2 reader and cleared a code. Then my ford escape 2.0 2014 fwd would not start. Boosted it and ran fine. 12hr later would not start, boast and good. Battery tests with a multi meter show its charging okay. Unplugged the negative, no...

    Hellooo! I got a 2019 Escape with the 2.5L engine. I am not familiar with that particular engine and curious to hear if any of you have it, what you like and dislike about it, the easiness to work on it when necessary and also if you have encountered any issues? Love my 5.0 and I have my own...
  3. 2015 Titanium Ecoboost AWD Needs engine

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    14 months ago I brought my suv to Ford Dealer because it was jerking and I was getting 11 MPG. They said I needed a new transmission and it was around $6800. I did and a few weeks later, I picked it up with new tranny. It was great. Although it never fixed the gas mpg problem. Within a year I...

    I have a '17 Ecoboost (1.5L) AWD with 50k miles. Under hard acceleration (4-5k RPM) a faint smell of burning plastic/rubber is present coming from the cabin air vents.

  9. Engine Cover on EcoBoost Engines

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    I am more about stock performance and the basics that surround making my ride a more enjoyable but also a more stable vehicle. Concerning the engine cover on these Escapes. I know the health of the engine and especially the turbo is heat. Does this cover serve any other purpose outside of a...
  10. 2013 Ford Escape Engine Noise While Accelerating

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hi all, What is this engine noise that only happens while accelerating on my 2013 Ford Escape? About 91k miles on it. I thought it was the air filter so I checked it out, replaced it, tightened everything back up, but the noise is still there. Anyone heard this noise before? Only happens...
  11. 2017 Escape, S: Tight Engine Compartment?

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hi folks, I'm a potential-new Escape owner. I've always wanted an Escape, and I'm close to buying one. I've been looking at a 2017 Escape S (absolute base model). Anyway, I test-drove the car last night. All felt fine, especially for a stripped-down, base model. My biggest concern came when...

    Hi, I recently bought a salvage title 2014 ford escape titanium at an auction and I'm fixing it up right now.

  13. 2013 Escape Engine seems loud!

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    I just purchased my 2013 Escape SEL w/Eco-Boost, which was a one-owner with approx. 40K miles. Although the mileage seems somewhat high, everything seems to be in great condition & the CarFax showed nothing unusual. One question I do have is this; I realize the car has a turbo, but it, to me...
  14. "lifetime" fuel filter

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    So, I recently hit the 25k mark with Serenity, and I mentioned to the tech that I was going to go ahead and change out the fuel filter. I know this was usually a little early, but for the first 20k, Serenity was taking me all over Texas on long trips. So I figured I would just be proactive. The...

    Ford Escape General Discussion

  16. Engine Light

    3G Engine and Technical Discussion
    Today my engine light came on. I pulled over and pulled out the manual. It said if it was in Amber, it was not urgent. I believe the symbol in the book says it means "service engine soon". How urgent do you think this is? I can't decide if I should drive it to work in the morning? Thanks!
