Question about Ford Escape
Buy a repair manual for your vehicle and take it step to replace the water pump. I was a mechanic for 21 years and I always referred to drawings, blueprints and directions when servicing anything. A waterpump used to be pretty easy to replace on pre-1990 vehicles, but one these newer vehicles there is so much stuff that manufacturers put in the way, or mount differently. I have also gone to youtube to see if somebody else has done it so I don't have to learn by trial and error. . .

one thing to keep in mind that even though the vehicle is new you can still have major engine issues, because of the bearing material may have been bad at production.taking this in account any part on a vehicle can fail prematurely either because of poor insatllation or improper manufacturing. As far as oil filters are concerned bthe odds of mechanic installing the wrong filter are slim to none.the oil pressure sending unit only senses that here is oil flowing through it. it doesn't set the light off unless there is absolutely no pressure at all the only way to see the pressure is to have a gauge. oil prssure should be abot 45 psi at 2000 rpms. the only way a filter would effect oil pressure is if it was completely clogged. It would take a great deal of coolant in the oil to ruin a set of bearings and before that happens your vehicle would not run very well and you would notice a great amount of white smoke out the exaust. this would indicated either a blown head gasket.cracked head or a cracked block. you never mentioned what they found in the anaylasis of the oil. I presume that your vehicle is still under warrenty on the powertrain. I would suggest that you have the dealership check your oil pump out. every vehicle will have a small amount of metalic residue in the oil. large shavings and chunks of metal would be a worry. please rate this thanks.

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.

I had the same problem. It turned out to be that the electric fan that cools the high voltage battery in back was faulty letting the battery get too hot. This is part of the hybrid system and is guaranteed for 8 years, so the fix is free at the Ford dealer, even if you bought the car used.

BELOW list is compiled from our staff with a more likely cause of overheating.
Radiator cap failure. Must be able to handle 15 psi tested.
Antifreeze failure. Has the coolant been tested or changed in the last few years?
Does the cooling fan
failure. Thermostat's do fail, you you have any memory of changing it?
Head gasket. This problum you would tend to never be able to get the air out of the radiator, lots of small bubbles. if this is your problem seek provisional help this problem only get worse not better.
Hope these tips guide you to the solution to your problem
