Question about 2001 Ford Escape

Ford Escape wont run

For last week it has taken two attempts to get my vehicle started but then seemed to run without any noticeable problem. Today after work it would turn over easily and idle if I kept my foot on the gas. As soon as I took my foot off the gas it dies. Any ideas?

Many possible things it could be but first thing I would check is your alternator. I would suggest that you get the car towed to somewhere like Aamco and they can run a free diagnostic for you.

Car turns on and off every 10 seconds after I use the remote start


Aftermarket remotes don't last to long. Good ones, about 7 years. I have never put one in, But have taken hundreds of them out. Eventually your remote will die completely and won't let you start the vehicle with the key.

What may cause a difficult to start situation? It usually takes 3 attempts, cranking the engine (10-15 seconds), before it will start.


You would need to know if you are lacking fuel pressure or spark when the problem happens to know which system to test.
A relay or ignition component could be getting hot and not working, or the fuel pump could be loosing pressure.

I have a 1999 Dodge Avenger V6 and the vehicle stopped running yesterday about 2-21/2 blocks from my house. When attempt to restart would not start, tried starting and sounded like it was going to a couple...


Jenifer, it sounds like the oil lines from the oil pump are clogged or the pump itself is defective. Please do not run the engine until you get it checked out. If the oil pump in the bottom pan is not pushing oil to the top of the engine the valves and cams are not being lubricated and will burn up...Bue, Bye engine!

2004 Chevy Cavalier - car cranks over but won't start


Well, let me try to say this without being too offensive.....
Your car only quit running on you once. I find it really hard to believe that all of the parts you replaced so far, needed to be replaced to get the engine running again. It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY that all of these "failures" would occur all at the same time.

You would rather pay for $500+ in parts that the car apparently did not need, than to pay to have it towed to a shop where they have the knowledge, training and equipment necessary to properly diagnose the vehicle and get it running again? And now you want someone to tell you what is causing the problem with your vehicle without the benifit of any diagnostic testing?

There is NO WAY that ANYONE can accurately tell you what is wrong with your vehicle without following the correct diagnostic procedures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The most anyone can do online without proper diagnosis and testing is GUESS! You seem to be doing that very well on your own.

Passenger side airbag light wont stay off


This subject is covered in the 2006 Ford Escape Owner's Manual starting on page 116 under the heading of "Front Passenger Sensing System". I highly recommend that you read this FIRST.

If you do not have your 2006 Ford Escape Owner's Manual you can get a free PDF version HERE. (direct link to file)

If after reading the Owner's Manual, you are convinced that the problem is a malfunction (not normal operation) and is not caused by operator error, I recommend that you take your vehicle to a certified auto repair technician (or Ford Dealer) for diagnosis and repair. I DO NOT recommend attempting ANY KIND of do-it-yourself diagnosis or repair on any supplemental restraint system components without the proper training and equipment.

My car has been running fine. Starts each morning once to drive kids to school. An hour later for me to drive to work. But for the last two mornings won't start back up after working 4 hours. I noticed...


Sounds like the alternator is going out the slow way.
Youre kinda lucky because almoat all alternators go out without warning.
Most Autozone shops or places like it will run a test for free.
Good luck,Gary
