2007 Ford Escape Hybrid Clatter Noise

Clattering Noise only when engine is on, and the noise goes away in electric mode. I was on the highway when the noise started. Immediately got the red triangle with exclamation point, and also got the message to stop safely now. I pulled over and shut the engine off, restarted after 5 minutes, triangle and exclamation point were off but the noise did not go away. Same car was rear ended 1-1/2 weeks ago. I had oil before heading out on the trip, but was 3 quarts low after 80 miles. I pulled the valve cover but nothing looked broken or loose. Water pump is working. Vehicle is low on power and doesn't shift well. Any ideas on what might be making the noise?

So being it doesn't clatter in electric mode, a safe assumption is the noise is with the gas motor.

Usually a clattering noise is valvetrain noise, like a lifter not pumping up.

Low oil will cause this.

3 quarts low would probably definitely cause this!

You need to find out why you lost 3 quarts in only 80 miles!

    So, it looks like I spun a bearing. I found a used engine that I can afford. I just can't afford to have it installed.

SOURCE: lost engine oil: 2002 Ford F150 Supercrew 4x4 5.4l engine

This is certainly one of the strangest things I have ever heard as a mechanic. . This almost sounds like some one is playing a game of letting your oil out this vehicle. With no visible leaks no burning smell of oil. However I would recommend that you check the coolant in the radiator and see if the oil is in the coolant. (If they are mixing together) If they are mixing the coolant should have a milky look to it, creamish white. If its good then the only other logical explanation is that the vehicle i s burning alot of oil, but if that was true you would see a grayish blue smoke from tail pipe. If you are 100% sure they are no oil leaks on this vehicle, then this problem is surely strange. Check coolant and get back to me. Good Luck

The 0171 code is a lean condition defect. This means the engine is getting extra air from somewhere. Could be a loose vacuum hose, bad intake gasket, or something else.

2007 ford escape popping noise in front end when turning & braking,can be felt in brake pedal


You may want to raise the front wheels and check for loose wheel bearings by rocking the tire-excess rock the wheel bearing needs replaced. Also check the tie-rod ends-they should be stiff not easily moved. If they move easily replace the bad one. Also check the boots-two on each-on the CV joints-if they are torn or seeping grease you may want to have them checked.

Ford Escape Hybrid goes dead if not driven for 3 days straight


I have the same problem with my 2007 Escape Hybrid... First experienced it about 1 year ago. The vehicle produces periodic sounds like an electric motor running for several seconds. I believe this is from the motor driven safety relay that disconnects and reconnects the high voltage hybrid battery when the vehicle is not in use. I also can hear a high frequency scream that sounds like a switching inverter power supply. If the vehicle is unused for a day or two the 12V battery is discharged and a jump is needed to start the engine. Ford service could not diagnose the problem. The +12V battery tested OK, but since it was almost 3 years old it was replaced anyway. This helped for a while, but the problem returned after I recently left the vehicle unused for several days. I know the battery is good, it tests OK and is less than one year old! Somewhat reluctant to go back to the same Ford service agency because of their previous failure to fix it. Please advise if you have found a solution or have additional information. This is the only problem I have ever had with the hybrid Escape, but it is very annoying. I am forced to carry a jumper battery to make sure I don't get stranded.

I bought a locking gas cap recently from Pep Boys. Maybe you can check online?

As for the noise.. I don't think I've heard anything like that with my 2008 Hybrid. I do notice lots of different noises but I tend to not pay much attention to them..
