Question about 2005 Ford Escape

1 Answer

My 2005 Ford Escape XLT stared reving the engine really high usually at a stop. Now the rpm's will go really low at a stop but when pushing the gas the engine revs really high and takes a bit to go back down. I've replaced the throttle motor but that is not the problem.

Ever do the 60k mile tune up, yet (aka: tuneups?)
clean the EGR first, most cars with EGR need 50k service,
if it stick open motor will stall .
idle controls are complex on newer cars with fly by wire.
if not fly by wire, clean the ISC .
possible #3 is induction air leaks (aka vacuum leaks)
Is the CEL lamp glowing? running?
if yes, the ECU is trying its best to tell you what is wrong.
listen to it, that is called a scan tool (cheap as $7)

SOURCE: Engine misfiring

It could be you have a bad distributor ar bad spark plugs. It is also a possibility that the cars computer was programmed wrongly. Either way I would suggest going to a Ford Repair shop and having them run a systems check on the computer to properly diagnose what is happening.

SOURCE: Wher do you install a cabin filter on a 2005 Ford Escape XLT?

Yes you have one and it runs about $15.00.

Looking for a picture for you but it should be in the engine compartment area, passenger side, just below the windshield on the firewall area...or JUST above it.

But looking for a picture for you. It states that you should change it about every 150,000 miles.

Oil light coming on when come to a stop orinto a sharp right turn.


Well it could be the sending unit/switch or a wiring problem, but it really sounds like the engine is low on oil. You have checked to see if it is full, right ?

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.

Rough idle while in gear. There are no engine lights on. I replaced the spark plugs 6 months ago and seemed run better. Rough idle came back, so I cleaned out the PCV valve and it helped for the short...


Are your rpm's low when sitting at a stop light and vehicle warmed up? You could check your TPS (Throttle position sensor) or maybe your egr is plugging up, or one of your plugs or wires could have gone bad, maybe the coil on one of the wires is bad. You really need to plug a code reader into the ECU and see if there is a code being thrown. And NO, all codes will not cause the engine light to come on.

1992 ford f150 xlt- when first started idle jumps from very low to very high repeatedly until warm. then idle is high


try un-plugging the IAC motor,then start it,if it idles low and stays there then replace the IAC motor----if no change then you may have a knock in the engine and the knock sensor is telling the computer to change the timing to compensate for spark knock due to low grade fuel,so it advances the timing back and forth due to too high of rpm then too low and the computer doesnt know how to smoothen it out that fast,but eventually does.The check engine light would usually come on in this case
