Question about 2006 Ford Escape

1 Answer

My oil light comes on, after the car has warmed up, but only when I stop at a light, etc. As soon as I accelerate, the light goes off. After I have been driving for about 1/2 an hour, the light doesn't come on at all. Also, it only does it when the outside temperature is less than 50 degrees.

SOURCE: Vibration/rattle underneat when starting/accelerating

I had the same issue. They replaced the muffler that was cracked inside, as well as the heat shield. Problem solved.
They even showed me the pieces as they fell from the muffler.
A common problem with this vehicle and covered as long as it is within the 36 month/36,000 mile bumper to bumper deal.

SOURCE: Air Conditioner stops blowing cold air when vehicle is not moving

plus one on the cooling fan problem. if it was low on charge then as you slow down, condensor temps and line prressures would raise therefore it would cool at low speed and and not when moving since the incoming air would drop system temp,reducing line pressure and then cusing compressor to cycle. the auxillary cooling fans must be on whenever a/c is on, if not, thats your problem. get this taken care of because if you get stuck in traffic, your engine will overheat also if fans are not running

SOURCE: 2007 ford 500 oil warning light comes on and just

When they changed the oil they did not reset the light. The car needs to be told when the oil is changed.

when the warning comes on press the setup button. it should say press reset if new. Press the reset button. It should say if new oil hold reset. Press and hold the reset button until the display changes to oil life set to 100%.

SOURCE: after 20-30 min. driving oil light comes on when

There is less oil distributed to the engine in idle position than when you drive. So when the oil light comes on, you may have to put a little oil in your car. While driving, the oil reading may be enough for your sensors in your car to not send a signal, but when you stop and the oil pressure goes down, it may not be enough and that's when the light comes on. When you drive 20 to 30 minutes, your oil gets thinner because it is warm. That also will send a different reading to the sensors. You may want to try a thicker oil (instead of 10/40 try 5/20 ... ask before you do this!).

Oil light comes on when car idles


The light means the oil pressure has dropped below 10psi.
You could replace the oil pressure switch and see if the light stays off, or have the pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.
Make sure the engine oil level is full.

What this is telling you is that you have very low oil pressure. Is your cars oil level up? If you have a proper oil level in you car then you could have a bad sensor. Then on the other hand your oil pump may be going bad. Hopefully this gives you at least some place to start and I hope this helps you out a little.

The oil pump may be going out - the light indicates the pressure is below the proper level and when you step on the gas it spins faster/raises the pressure back up to an acceptable level.

This is something to get checked RIGHT AWAY, as these cars have a history of engine failure....possibly due to low oil pressure.

Check this LINK for more info.

The emissions system may be related, but get the oil pressure issue fixed 1st.
