SOURCE: headlight went out in 2003 ford escape i have

you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

SOURCE: Ford Escape 2003. Engine suddenly overheat.

Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.

If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.

If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Good luck.

My 2007 ford escape sometimes get stuck in park


Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brakes lights and shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push the switches with your finger. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector.

The car wont shift out of park however the mechanic was able to trigger a switch to get it to work and shift. He said it is the nuetral safety switch, is this the same as the range sensor on ford escapes?...


The range sensor will not cause the shifter to not come out of park. Check to see if your brake lamps work. There is a solenoid that is energized when the brakes are applied to allow the shifter to move from park. I would check fuses and the braek switch first before replacing anything. I hope this helps. Good luck.

I need to adjust my parking brake on my 2003 Expedition. It does not hold as tightly as it use to. Is this something that can be easily adjusted?


there should be an adjusting screw around the lever that is used to apply the parking brake. if you tighten this until there is a slight drag in the back tires and then back off two full turns then that will adjust the parking brake.
