Hello, I am new to the forum. I could use a little advice. I work on cars and other high tech equipment so I am somewhat competent. I started a vacation in my 2015 2.0 AWD escape 77k- and 800 miles into the trip, I had the dreaded vacuum pump failure. Hard pedal- made it to my destination (Rocky mountains-Brake problem-No Bueno) car running great still. Called all around to get my car in a dealer or shop as I did not have my garage or tools. No one could get me in until I should be back home 1000 miles away. I ordered the pump and drive adapter that threads into cam, picked up the parts, bought some tools. I took the pump out and the adapter was sheared. I cleaned all the shavings I could get and put it back together. short test run went well. Another drive-after 10 minutes loss of most power. I cannot get it up over 60 on the flat with manual shifting. I read a few other posts and it points turbo problems with gunk in the sensors-maybe a total engine replacement. Folks, I am 1000 miles from home with the fam. Is there anybody that can maybe give me a few suggestions to get me to where I can do some things to get this running good enough to get back? Thank you.

Welcome to the forum.

You could try disconnecting the battery for a while to reset everything. I'd also be double checking everything you disturbed when doing the pump repair too.

Thank you for the tips. those are the first things that I checked/tried after the engine started acting up. It’s on a transport back home right now. I’m sure I’ll have plenty of questions when I Tear in to it in my garage. Thanks again

Ok, sparkles through oil. Pulled cam sensor and it was covered with metal particles. Turbo fail codes. Looks like an engine swap.

Not good. I hope you can get it fixed without it costing too much.
