Question about 2002 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

Ford Escape stalls while driving.

Our 2003 V6 3.0 Escape started giving us trouble about 3 months ago. It completely stalled while driving on the road. We took it into the dealer and they diagnosed the problem as a bag idle air control valve. Seemed fine for a few weeks and then the engine light AND fuel door open lights came on again and stalled. Took it back to Ford and they said the computer needed to be reprogrammed. Now it seems even worse. We have a hard time starting sometimes (just the click, click, click and then nothing but will eventually start on 3rd or 4th attempt) and now the car dies out while driving and the anti-theft light comes on. Help! My husband wants to go out and buy a new car because he's afraid we will never find out what's wrong with it!

    We have already done 3 diagnostic tests and they could find no stored codes for the anti-theft light related stalling. It's frustrating! They said the car was in such good running condition that the spark plugs don't even need to be changed. :(

    That's what I'm afraid of. I was out with my kids running errands and it died on me while starting from a busy intersection. They are afraid to ride in it now. :(

As the post said earlier they went to a ford shop.... I suggest to have your vehicle inspected elsewhere. maybe have your o rings replaced and your fuel system cleaned.

I did not drive my 2003 Escape for two months. It worked fine this morning. Then driving home to night it was almost stalling at the stop signs. Driving along the Highway it had no power at was very jerky...


Get the code, any time you get a MIL Lamp on dash

Jerky--could be EGR Valve

Need the vehicle to diagnose issues,can not guess

Ignition coils a big ford problem, for over 14 years running.
They like to sell them that way

My ford escape stalled on me while driving i had just install a new alternator 1 month ago because it did the same thing


Check your coils on the spark plug, also check your EGR valve and Idle air control valve. Mine did the same thing and I had to replace the IAC, and EGR valve and replace to coils on the spark plugs
