2005 Ford Escape clutch failure

What are the odds of a clutch failure at 65K mostly highway driving?
Does the clutch and brakes use a common reservoir? Could a recent brake/rotor relpacement (less than 200 miles ago) have caused a hydraulic issue with my clutch?

Where is the AC fuse on a 2005 Ford escape located

A/C fuse ? Compressor clutch not coming on ? HVAC control panel ? When you push that A/C button ,that is an input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM then energizes the A/C clutch relay turning on the compressor clutch . The odds of this being a fuse problem is astronomical . But check fuse F14 15amp in under hood fuse box . Check A/C clutch relay also ! Check power an control of relay ,do you know what this is ? Go on you tube an check out video on test a relay .

My clutch. 2014 escape smells like burning brakes why

Could be your emergency break is locked on. Could be reason for early clutch failure. Other wise if you are sure it is the clutch, it has not been adjusted properly and so slipping. Take it back to installer. I had a standard 5spd never changed clutch in 175,000 miles. Or you are keeping your foot on the clutch. Learn to drive with minimum clutch effort.

After driving my 2005 Escape on highway the rear driver side rotor is a lot hotter than the passenger side. It also feels like the caliper is sticking. Dealership serviced rear brakes recently but problem...

It is not releasing correctly,thus running hot

I have to be careful here,because I see hundreds of these
and other problems coming out of dealers,just on this site

Basically with out writing a book on the subject,your worse
off now, than before the dealer visit

You need to go back over All your calipers,rotor,etc,as well
as the parking brake system,and just simply to the job,or
whatever it takes to resolve it.

I have never had 1 brake issue in 47 years of doing
my own work,so I have to stop here,I find all those issues
completely unnecessary and personally troubling

How extensive is replacing a cluthc on a 2005 ford Escape front wheel drive 2.3l 4cyl?

Any clutch job reqires you to remove the transmission,as I would assume you know.

Not a driveway job.

Any work involving a transaxle,drive axles,clutches,really needs an indoor lift.

Why in 2010 would you own a clutch?
My last clutch was in 1973

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure

This is a common problem on most Ford products since around 1998. The issues is mostly with the COP--Coil-On-Plug. Their individual coils for eack spark plug,vs. a single coil pack or distibutor and wire type system. Now the good part. With all of fords problems, ALL MFG's use this type system,Nice move.
The coil driver failure, shouldn't be a wide spread issue
Forget recalls?

You saw Nissan ,recall issues,back to 2004 thru 2008,once Toyota had the gas peddle issues. If it wasn't for Toyota,they were laying low. Everyone new there were problems. Same thing on Chevy Colorado,Etc

Multiple Ignition coil failure w/ On-board computer failure

to beds_borders

That sounds very familiar. Our 2005 Ford Escape just had about the same problem to the tune of a $2800 repair. Computer failure caused two iginition coils to fail and had to drive over the Continenetal Divide on 4 cylinders. The vehicle is only 5 years old. Happened about 3 weeks ago. Ford said there is no recall. I have a big problem with that.. Where is the "quality" they are trying to sell?

Brake maintenance

It really depends on the type of driving you do most of. Highway miles very little wear, mostly city driving alot of wear.
Rule of thumb is usually front around 30,000 and rear around 50,000.
