Question about 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid FWD
I have a 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid.Should the gasoline engine shut off when stopped or idling? What would cause it not to shut off? The defrost and the AC are not on. Do I need to take it in and have it checked out?
Try replacing the battery for a new one first. If that does not work you may need a mechanic spending some times on the car.

Welcome to Fixya! These Guys do not have a Clue about Hybrids. Your Batteries are not Storing enough Power to Kill the Fuel engine down. The Batteries should take over when you are Local Driving. But, they will kick the Fuel into Mode when they do not have Enough pawer to do what you want them to do. This is a Problem that will require a Complete Diagnostics on the Battery and Fuel System to Find the Problem The Dealership will have to Perform this as they may need to replace a few of the Battery Cells to Solve this Problem.
