Question about 2006 Ford Escape

1 Answer

Stops running My car rides fine but tends to shut off when I come to a complete stop. I don't usually go to far or to fast. I replaced the theromstate thinking its over heating. Car still does the same thing if you go past 60mph or drive 40mph for to long, once you come to a stop the engine shut off and will not allow you to shift gears without shutting off.

What kind of car is it? Is it manual or automatic transmission? Also, I would suggest checking your idle air control valve. That allows the cars idle to rise when you come to a complete stop. If it sticks then the vehicle will idle too low and stall. Or it could be that your idle adjustment is too low, that is a screw located on the throttle manifoldddepending on your vehicle type. I hope this at least put a you in a better direction.

SOURCE: engines idles rough and shuts off

  1. Answer: The engine noise, it is impossible for us to help you here without listening to the engine ourselves. As for your idling problem, check all the vacuum hoses and intake manifold gaskets as you might have a slight vacuum leak somewhere. In addition, check the idle speed control motor to make sure it is operating properly. If all checks out okay, scan the computer for fault codes. Scan the computer for fault codes. Also, check the oxygen sensor and coolant sensors and also Check your EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve it sounds like it is stuck open and needs replacing

SOURCE: over drive light flashes

P0743 is Torque Converter Clutch solenoid circuit failure during self-test.
P0750 is SS1(shift solenoid) solenoid circuit failure.
P0755 is SS2 solenoid circuit failure.

Sounds like you are having an intermitant electrical failure to the tranny. Check the connector at the Tranny and make sure you don't have a loose connector and check it for corrosion.Trace these 3 wires back GN/WH, GN/Y, and GN/O. these go back to a splice then go into one wire GN/Y and then to the PCM relay in the engine compartment fuse panel. Make sure that this harness is not chaffing on metal somewhere or maybe the splice is going bad.You can try and overlay it from the relay to one of the 3 wires at the tranny connector and see if this solves the concern.

SOURCE: while driving engine just shuts off

go down and have your alternator checked, it might be weak, causing a surge in power to the ecu, shutting the engine down, if was the battery the car wouldnt fire right back up, another thing might be the fuel filter/pump, these should be the first things to check.

1995 jeep wrangler just stops running without warning.

A bad crank sensor will shut the jeep off suddenly, while driving down the road, then restart later and it repeats over and over until you replace it.

Hi, I have Mercedes C180, I have changed both Sam units. Now it's battery keep draining out. Once it's starts its run fine. Can some one help me please.

Don't you have some warning lights on your dash? MB cars are fly-by-wire that tend to depend so much on battery electricity when shut off. Use a high amps battery or battery recommended matching your car model. Check on some instruments that can be a parasitic drain to your car like, car alarm, sticking relays on auxiliary fans, radios. Worse you have a short somewhere or a wiring harness issue, but it should be giving you a warning on the dash.

I have a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 pick up truck that has no torque in the drive gear. It is slow in taking off at a complete stop.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt, the vehicle tends to run rough or hesitates. If the problem still persist after the fluid replacement, go for the torque converter replacement. It controls the shifting of the vehicle and once replaced, a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My 1999 mercury mystique shut off when i come to a complete stop

It may be the timing on the vehicle! I was having the same problem, and now I am replacing the timing belt and serpentine belt. I pray that it is the problem and that it fixes what was going on. My car basically stalled when I came to a stop or slowing down fast. Eventually, when I came to a stop got out, and when I got back in, it wouldn't start. So, I may be wrong but I am hoping I am right because of the time and effort that I have put in this vehicle.

Engine stops immediatly after starting

Sounds like faulty Crank position sensor. These tend to go out alot on Jeeps. Most of the time it will be running fine and then it will shut off like someone shut the key off. Hope this helps.
