I recently heard that I should install a cold-weather bypass to protect my transmission since I am now living in a "cold" region of USA.

Hi nwmn,

I've never heard of that device..... But as I'm in Africa, so maybe not surprising?..... I do know that cooling the auto trans is very important and failure to have efficient cooling can result in failure.... Please contact your dealer and find out what they suggest..... It may be that you need a larger ratio of coolant anti freeze in the radiator..... Your agent will give you the info....

Escape kept needing a jump... got a new battery. Escape started okay for about a week or two but then died again. Weather is REALLY cold. A couple of suggestions from garages were starter or alternator....

This sounds like an alternator problem. Places like O'Reily and Auto Zone can do a charging system test for free and let you know if you should replace the alternator.

2004 ford escape has no power when give it gas and wont turn the transmission very much when in gear i can only get it to barley move. just had new plug wires and a coil pack installed was doing 70 on...

most likely your transmittion happened to me but in reverse my mechanic told me it was due to a transmittion flud hose that was too small which if you had your escape dealer serviced they replaced however it was not a recall the smaller hose in cold weather doesnt allow enough trans fluid to circulate which heats up the trans causing the clutch in trans to warp and disentegrate. when mine went it startd slowly engine would rev but car hardly moved then it would no longer move at all had t rebuild trans cost me 3200.00 im taking action against ford as to why a recall was not put into placed a few people i know who have escapes have had to rebuild trans for same issues hope it helps!

2002 Ford Escape V6 XLT, problem w/ initial start in cold weather

Does the engine crank but just not start? Or... are you cycling the ignition switch without trying to crank the engine? Based on the information you have given, I would first guess that the fuel pump may be going out. I say this because when you first turn the key on the pump primes the engine with pressurized fuel. If the pump is getting old, it may take a few power cycles to get it going. You can test this theory by having somebody listen near the rear of the car while you turn the key on for the first time. The fuel pump make a faint, yet distinctive high pitch noise that can be heard when you turn the key on. Try that first. Next thing you would try is checking the relays for proper function... starting with the fuel pump relay. Good luck.

What size battery 2003 escape v6

It depends on where you live. the colder environments you want high cold cranking amps. warmer climates dont require high cold cranking amps.. A buy 750 amps or higher for my cars. I live in Oklahoma. It can get below zero here. If you want a quality battery remember this. Batteries are made by two different companies regardless of the sticker on the battery. The highest quality batteries weigh more. Optima are the best, but cost $120 and up.

good luck!
