I assume if there was a "check engine" light on, you would have said so. Any other symptoms in the last couple of weeks? Are the plugs getting a spark? Test that first. If so, spray a LITTLE starting fluid into the air intake and try starting. Does it start, even for a fraction of a second?

Testimonial: "Check engine light wasn't on. I'll try srpaying some starting fluid in the air intake and see what happens. Thank you."

SOURCE: check engine light reset for 2001 ford escape

On any car 1996 or newer after a repair is made the memory in the computer has to be cleared the light will not go away by itself. The proper way to clear this is with a scanner or code reader but if you dont have any other way unhooking the battery will force the computer to loose all its memory and start all over and the light will go away. If the light returns after a few days you still have a problim.

SOURCE: Engine will not turn over, makes a clicking or rapid clicking sound

SOURCE: location of the bank 1 sensor 2 O2 sensor on a 2001 ford escape

B1 means the sensor is located on the same bank of the engine that has the #1 cylinder. B2 is located on the opposite bank.
S1 means the sensor is located BEFORE the catalytic converter
S2 means the sensor is located AFTER the catalytic converter

You didn't say which engine you have, so I've included the diagrams of both 4 cyl and 6 cyl so you can see the banks

2001 ford escape has very little power and sounds like it is sucking air? what could it be?


sounds like you have a bad vacuum leak. Look under the hood and listen to where the hiss or sucking sound maybe coming from. Use your hands and move the vacuum hoses around a little and hear for louder sound. It's hard to pinpoint the exact vacuum hose but there's only a few.
