SOURCE: 2003 escape idling to high, exhaust pipes turning orange red, not cataylic

Your escape is a 3.0L duratec motor. Is the motor itself overheating or just the pipes? The high idle is often related to a dirty Idle Air Control module or IAC, which is located on the top of the motor near the throttle body. If you clean this, or replace it, after a few days the high idle is often times solved.

SOURCE: 2001 v6 escape rough idle when cold

To update my earlier repair on the 2001 6 cyl Escape: When cold, and when the ignition was turned over but no accelerator pressure given, the rough idle finally returned the P0303 code again when the check engine light came on indicating that it wasn't caused by the plugs or the coil. FYI, I had replaced the intake manifold gaskets during the original repair and just prior to that I had replaced the fuel filter which was very dirty (I cut it open to see).

The repair manual referred to fuel injectors as a possible problem. I have run three tanks of fuel using different injector cleaning products and am very pleased with the results. Cold starts are much smoother and I am unable to coax out the P0303 code or any other code.

My opinion, change the fuel filter, use a fuel injector cleaner for a couple of tanks, change the plugs if the problem still exists. The coils were not the problem on my vehicle.

High Idle at Start Up


This sounds like the RPM may be a little high, but normal operation is called a "cold start routine". Like the old fashion Choke, the "cold start routine" is suppose to increase the RPM for several minutes and then decrease to running idle speed. This will engage in each "cold" start, but not on a warm engine. It is designed to do this.

Usually when an engine runs higher RPM than it is set for, it means extra air is entering the engine from somewhere. Using a spray water filled bottle, go around seams and also spray vacuum lines and the EGR pod while the engine is running. Any openings will draw in the water and affect RPM. Then you will have found the leak.

Now you can look up you exact engine on the Web and find out 2 things. If it has a 2 piece intake manifold and if it has intake Manifold runners. The 2 piece design often failed when the gasket holding the 2 halves started dissolving. The intake runners, could stick out of position and make RPM higher.

Now aside from these 2 items, you might get a Code showing that the engine is running lean. This would actually not be showing the lack of fuel, but the overabundance of air coming from the leaks.

One possibility is a buildup of dirt and sludge in and around the idle air control valve. The buildup causes the idle air valve to stick.

2003 ford escape -- suddenly the throttle seemed to be sticking, high rpm on start up and while driving. Hit gas peddle a couple of times and then it wouldn't idle normally... almost on the pin. Looked...


Hello,
I don't believe I can help you with the throttle cable comming off the pin without actually being able to see it, but, if you get it hooked back up and still have problems with the idle, the most common cause for that is a faulty TPS, ( throttle position sensor ), sometimes you can remove the throttle body, clean it, and then re-install it. This usually solves the problem.
I hope this helps you.

What would cause my 2003 ford escape to idle around 2000 to 3000 rpm after it has been running for a while. it runs fine when it is first started up.


If your A/C is on , or you are running the climate control in the defrost windshield mode , the engine will idol higher than normal.
A Vacuum leak could also cause a high idol.. check the vacuum lines and be sure they are in good condition and all plugged in.
