    Thanks so much for the answers. It means a lot to me. I cannot afford to go to a mechanic at this time. I changed 1 02 out now is reading rear one. Also changed out the fuel filter it was really dirty.

The intake manifold gaskets need replacement as well as the o-rings inside - if you call FORD they should be able to get you the correct parts.

  Check the wire harness near the top of the engine in the rear. They were good for rubbing through on the trans fill tube bracket. Judging by the code you have 4 sensors. you would be interested in the drivers side rear sensor.

SOURCE: p401 emission code ford escape 2001 6cyl

P0401 shows an Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient. Without a good scan-tool you will be playing the "Parts Changing Game". Insufficient flow can be the result of a vacuum leak, bad MAP sensor, an exhaust leak, faulty EBP sensor, carbon build-up, and so on. I wish I could say more but with all the electronics it is more complicated then earlier cars.

I already replaced front 02 sensor and still have 02 sensor codes


I'm pretty sure there are FOUR O2 sensors on my 2002 Escape. Two on the drivers side and two on the passenger side. At least that is what Auto Zone told me. Take the vehicle there and have them run a diagnostic. My #2 sensor on the passenger side was bad. You might also try disconnecting the negative battery cable and see if the check engine light goes out. That should also reset the computer and you may no longer get the code.. Then again, I could all wet.

My 2003 Ford Escape had a bad crank shaft sensor which, would cause it to stall out, mainly when the engine was hot. It often would not start after I turned off after a long drive. Once the engine was cool it would re-start. The replacement sensor was a bit differennt then the original. The original appeared to be mostly plastic, while the new one was metal. Ford must have know they had a problem part.

If it's still reading 02 sensors and you replaced them AND assuming you cleared codes I suspect bad cat, converters, The 02 sensors when everything is operating properly, the front 02 sensors read different from rear ones - if they read the same, you get code/light. Plus with your description sounds like bad converter(s)

O2 sensors keep failing and a evap leak code i put new gas cap did not cgehan ssomers11@gmail.com


Are you sure it's 02 sensors? Just because code says 02 sensors doesn't necessarily mean they're bad. Bad 02 sensor code can also indicate bad cat. converter. If 02 sensors read exact same reading before and after converter they will trigger OBC to "sensor fault" - they should be reading 2 different readings. (Pre CAT/POST cat) I'd suggest replacing cat converter before replacing sensors.

the transmission replcement mechanic may have missed plugging the 02 sensor back up,or layed the 02 sensor wires across the exhaust system,which burnt the 02 sensor wires.they also may have missed plugging sensors back up. suggest you go back to replacement mechanic and have them explain to you why it does'nt run the same. but do not be fooled,somethings not plugged back correctly.i know budget living. is check engine light on? if so, auto zone and advance auto parts can diagnose with printout for free. no charge! hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com us marine retired

My 2003 Lincoln Aviator emissions light is on and I failed inspection because of it. How can I pass inspection and fix this emissions problem? The inspection code given to me was PO420???


po420 is catalyst system efficiency below threshold. meaning is--- could be down stream 02 sensors or a bad convertor. try buy replacing down stream sensors, hopefully this may help. ( down stream 02 sensors are between convertor and tailpipe). have a good day !!

2003 ford escape p 136 trouble code what is it and how do i repair it


If the code is P0136 then the code is 02 sensor (bank 1 sensor2) malfunction. Rear sensor.
Inspect wiring, inspect connection and pins, and if that stuff checks out then you may need a 02 sensor.
