Open the gas fill door, remove the gas cap and smell the gas fill tube area. If it has a kerosene like smell then you may have filled it with diesel fuel. If so select your favorite garage to drain the tank and flush the fuel system to remove the diesel.
This vehicle should run on any type of gasoline so I suspect the fluid you put in was not gasoline.

Your probably getting vapor lock. Try pulling the nozzle out just a tiny maybe 1/4 inch and see if that helps.

This feature is programmed into the smart junction box(interior fuse panel) If your vehicle was originally equipped with this feature then you may just need to have it reprogrammed or turned on by the dealer with their scan tool. If it was not originnaly egipped then the smart junction box would have to be replaced.

Whenever I fuel my 2007 escape the nozzle keeps clicking off as though it is full but it is far from full. What would be causing that problem?

Hi, 1st, do you use only one petrol / gas station to fuel your Escape, ? Sometimes the nozzles are faulty, if that not the case, Take off the cap, and there will be an air bypass hose , small in diameter, on some cars they are visible, come up beside the filling hole, it could be blocked, not letting the air escape as fuel goes into your tank, ,Also , with a torch, not a lighter or match, I cant stress that enough, torch!!!, see if the little flap is returning, get ur self a piece of stiff wire, ( clean) eg, coat hanger wire, about 6 inches, 150 mm in length, and push on the flap, it should return, its has a small spring that makes it return, check that, with the same wire, carefully put in the air escape tubes,/ hoses, & make sure they are clear. if your able to access them, if you cant, you may have to find them by taking off the interior panels. As I have not actually seen the Escape fuel system, I am not 100% certain , however, most cars all work on a similar system, Hope this helps, . Please let me know how you get on, I would be happy to help more if needed....Regards

2002 ford escape starts but wont stay running unless the foot is kept on the pedal. took it to a shop and had a diagnostic test on it. It's saying there is nothing wrong. Mechanic said it must be

Computers rarely fail. The diagnostic would not show anything wrong unless a trouble code is set UNLESS the diagnostic used live data vieew. Most shops dont do that . So at what RPM does it not die? How many miles are on it? Ford uses something called an idle air speed motor. They are prone to fouling.

Sounds like you got a wire or two in the wrong place. You might want to pull up the firing order for your engine, as well as a diagram depicting which wire goes where.

you have a vapor vent tube problem. When fuel goes in, the iar must come out. The filler pipe has a vent pipe inside it. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Try putting the nozzle all the way in & see what happens? Try putting the nozzle in just a little way & see what happens.
Otherwise, you may need a new filler pipe.
