Tough one.
Check for any possible loose connections behind/under the gauge cluster.
Could be a burnt bulb too.

Testimonial: "Yeah, that was my next guess. I was just hoping there might be some other possibility since unfortunately I'm off at college right now and I don't have a socket wrench which I need to get behind the dash... I guess I'll have to give this a shot another day."

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?

If the cruise lamp comes on and the cruise does not set i would advise inspecting the cruise cable and make certain it is not broken, if ok the the servo has likely failed.

SOURCE: 2002 ford escape.....truck started sputtering

I have an 2002 Escape with a 3.0L engine.
First you need to get a OBD2 scan for the check engine code.
I suspect the code will tell you that one of the cylinders is misfiring.
If you also have the V6 engine, the most common cause of misfire is one of the Coil-Over-Plugs (COP). Each cylinder has a COP on the spark plug.
On the V6, you need to remove the upper intake manifold to get the back 3 COPs.
If you have a V6, and you have cylinder misfire, I recommend replacing all the plugs and coils.

I have had 2 COPs go bad. The second time, I replaced all of them.

Removing the intake is fairly easy if you have some repair experience. You need to get an intake gasket set for about $10-15.
The coils run +$75 each for OEM. I went with Ebay aftermarket; 6 coils for about $80.
I recommend replacing the plugs with the exact same brand as original. There is no miracle plug that will give you better performance or mileage. Stay original.

'05 ford escape - car won't start if fuel below 1/4 tank


Not sure about P0195, but P093 is for a problem with the fuel rail pressure sensor. The sensor could be faulty or it could be accurate when the fuel system is empty.
Your sending unit for the fuel gauge could be off. Can you check the amount of fuel it takes to fill the tank when the gauge reads half ? If the gauge is right it should take half of the capacity of the tank to fill it up.

My brother has leant me his 1993 Ford fairmont EB11. A red light is flashing intermiitanly it looks like a fan in some kind of cylinder. Could someone tell me what it is?


  • Full instrumentation pack (four ancillary guages plus tachometer) - with volt meter & oil pressure guage.
  • Speedometer, odometer, tripmeter, fuel guage & water temperature guage standard in addition to the above.
  • WARNING LIGHTS: High beam, rear window demist on, turn signal / hazard light, alternator fail, lights on, park-brake on, washer fluid low, radiator coolant low, cruise control indicator and low oil pressure.
  • AUDIBLE WARNING CHIMES: low fuel, lights on, low alternator charge, low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and brake failure.
  • Trip Computer standard featuring fuel consumption figures, distance to empty, average speed & time display.
I found this site, no mention of the fan in a cylinder, but I'll let you figure it out. Hope this helps.
