Question about 2001 Ford Escape
When I am driving my 2001 Ford Escape the engine will start bucking Rapidly at 4000 RPMs. As the RPMs increase above 4000 the buck will decrease in frequency but it gets more intense. what could be the problem?
I had exactly the same problem.
Changed the fuel filter and the problem went away

You need to tow this car to a service station almost immediatly, depending on what exactly is wrong you could be further damaging the vehicle. With the description you give it could be a whole mess of things but i would start with your fuel system. Have your fuel pump looked at and your injectors as well. this could also be as simple as a bad batch of gas/ water in the gas but it would not really explain why the problem ocours at higher rpms like that. Hope this helps
