Hybrid gas engine won't shut off when idling

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?

    I am reposted this hoping for a better answer to my problem. I just bought a 2007 Ford Hybrid Escape FWD. Shouldn?t the gasoline engine shut off when stopped or idling? My hardly ever does, and when it does, it doesn?t stay off for very long. What would cause this? The defrosters and AC are not on. I have taken it in to have it looked at. The dealer tells me it is all OK. I have run 2 tanks of gas so far since I bought it. The first tank I got 19 mpg, the second I got 17.5 mpg. I don?t think this is the kind of gas mileage ford says their escape hybrid is supposed to get. I need help to solve this problem. Any ideas?

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.

2008 ford escape hybrid idle too high


If you do not have a check engine light on you may have an issue with the electronic throttle control system, repair requires the system be scanned to see why it is idling to high. If you do have a check engine light on have the system tested for fault codes.

Lady friend has a 2006 escape hybrid; she just had problem of overheat; same as I had with my 2007; she went to Ford Dealer; they said it was a recall issue; fixed it for free. I paid a "Christian Brothers"
garage to fix mine; had no idea about a recall; (and bought mine from a Ford Dealer;!) but was not near a Ford Dealer at the time; both problems were the same and related to the hybrid system.

2007 Ford Escape Hybrid Clatter Noise


So being it doesn't clatter in electric mode, a safe assumption is the noise is with the gas motor.

Usually a clattering noise is valvetrain noise, like a lifter not pumping up.

Low oil will cause this.

3 quarts low would probably definitely cause this!

You need to find out why you lost 3 quarts in only 80 miles!

Used the wrong gas


Open the gas fill door, remove the gas cap and smell the gas fill tube area. If it has a kerosene like smell then you may have filled it with diesel fuel. If so select your favorite garage to drain the tank and flush the fuel system to remove the diesel.
This vehicle should run on any type of gasoline so I suspect the fluid you put in was not gasoline.

Ford 2005 Escape


you have a vapor vent tube problem. When fuel goes in, the iar must come out. The filler pipe has a vent pipe inside it. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Try putting the nozzle all the way in & see what happens? Try putting the nozzle in just a little way & see what happens.
Otherwise, you may need a new filler pipe.
