Question about 2005 Ford Escape

1 Answer

05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it started fine but only runned for a few minutes and the engine started to stall and went off. tried to start it again and it wont turn with the same clicking sound when first started. tried jump start again and it started fine. but again runned for a few minutes, stalled and went off... is it something to do with bad battery? or something else? why should it stall and go off while it runs good for a few minutes? and why should it start again when jump started? help please...thanks a lot...

    hi...thanks for the suggestion...i will surely give it a shot...what is around 50-100 that can be installed in minutes? are u refering to the alternator? or is it the cost to do the battery load tester?...by the way, im not sure if it is alternator coz my dash warning lights do not show any warning sign(battery light does not stay on) when the engine is running.....and when the engine stops, and i turn my ignition key to "ON" position (when trying to start the engine again}, i can here some fast clicking sound coming from somewhere underneath the dash board. and the engine wont start again. i can only hear some click but the engine or the starter is not even turning....but as i've said, jump started it again, then it starts fine but it goes back to the same cycle after a few minutes...thanks so much...every opinion is very much appreciated....

    hi...problem solved.....tested the alternator and found out it was not charging enough...it suppose to have at least 14 volts of charge and it only generated 11volts when we tested it...it's strange though coz it did not give me any warning sign (battery/charging warning light in the instrument cluster did not come on) when it happened...so when i started the vehicle, the battery was drained out coz the charge from the alternator is short when i used the vehicle the night before...strange!...anyways, we replace the alternator and it's fine now....hope this will help others to watch out for this cases.....and the alternator was so difficult to replace...unless u have the patience and enough/proper tools to use, dont attempt to do it yourself...not worth it..needed to pull-out front right axle and many other parts before u can reach the alternator....and the rebuilt alternator is not cheap!!!!....thanks very much for the helpful opinion.....more power and good luck to all escape owners......

Okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

GOT HOME FROM WORK YESTERDAY AND CAR DROVE FINE. GOT IN THIS MORNING AND CAR ONLY TURNS OVER , BUT WILL NOT START.ANY IDEAS?


Sounds like the battery might not have enough power to start engine. Even though, the radio might play and the lights may come on does not mean there is enough power to start engine. Try charging or jump starting it. These are simple tests to see if it is the battery. If the car starts after charging or jump starting, it was most likely the battery. Just let the car run for ten or so minutes before shutting off to charge the battery. Hope this helps

2000Toyota RAV4. stalled. wont start.


I don't want to be a prophet of doom but it sounds like the timing belt jumped a tooth. If it did the noise you heard would have been the valve touching the piston. If it went another tooth the engine will not start. You need to check the timing, correct it and try and start it. If it either locks up or won't start you probably have a bent valve.

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.
