SOURCE: 2004 Ford Escape Electrical problem

This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.

SOURCE: Change Oil light came on my 2006 Ford Escape

The change oil light is controlled by the main engine computer which monitors driving conditions and clock hours. Based on this data it suggest an oil change interval. The system, however has no way to know the oil was changed unless you tell it so. In your owners manual there is a procedure to "reset" this process in the engines computer. its normally done by holding a button and turning the ignition key on at the same time. It should be listed under oil change in the owners manual.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Escape V6. Oil indicator light on, but pressure holds.

My 2002 Ford Escape had exactly the same problem as described. Dealer replace oil pressure sending unit (oil pressure switch) and problem still existed while leaving dealer about 3 miles away. I took the car back to the dealer again in two days and the oil pressure light kept of blinking sporatically all the way to the dealer. Dealer checked connections and they drove the car around and the oil pressure light never came on. I picked the car up from the dealer and I've had no problems with the oil pressure light flashing. I wonder if there is a microprocesser in the oil pressure sending unit which has to be given some time to be recalibrated to the cars main computer module?

check for correct oil level in the sump first
this indicates insufficient oil level and the surge of the oil when stopping is allowing air into the pump and putting the light on

Autlander 03 wen the engine heats up the oil pressure light comes on on idol


At high temperatures, the oil loses viscosity, and its capability to produce higher pressures. At idle, the oil pump is running slowly and has limited capacity to produce pressure. Engines in good working order are designed to operate normally under these conditions. Either your oil pump is worn out, and replacing it will solve the problem, or the engine is worn out, and incapable of holding the oil pressure. The life of a worn out engine can be extended a few thousand miles by using heavier ( a lot heavier) oils.

2001 ford escape.. oil light comes on when at a stop and in drive. when i give it the gas the light turns off. i checked my oil,brake,coolant and tranny fliuds and are all fine????? no funny sounds????


this light is indicating your engine has low oil pressure sensed at idle, have the oil pressure checked with a special mechanical oil gauge, if the oil pressure checks ok then just replace the oil pressure sending unit, do this ASAP, if u do really have low pressure u can damage the engine bearings, a very expensive fix.
