SOURCE: 2002 Ford Escape will not shift into drive

This is the shift lock...you will need battery to release it electrically but there is an over ride by the shifter..either a button to push or a place to put your ignition key. This will release the shifter

SOURCE: Coolant light on

You say it's overheating, more info needed such as:
Is the engine temp gauge showing that it's overheating?
Is it actually 'boiling over' and losing coolant?
If it's running hot, but not losing coolant, check to see it the cooling fan is operating when the engine temp rises. You may have a bad cooling fan switch that is not signaling the fan to go on to lower the engine temp.
It could be a stuck (closed) thermostat that is preventing proper circulation of coolant after the car reaches operating temp.

My ford escape 2008 hybrid suddenly runs at higher rpms and idles at 1500 rpms. yesterday it worked fine and idled at 1100 rpms


You need the engine computer scanned for faults first, if nothing shows up you likely have a problem with the transmission, likely it is not shifting into overdrive.

My 2003 ford escape stalls when put in park, but not in drive


Does it go into the correct gear if you downshift to 2nd or 1st(shift cable misadjusted)? Could the DTC switch be bad on the side of the tranny? May have to ask Ford to look at it.
I suppose it could be an electrical short at the column,or is it a floor shifter? don-ohio (:^)

While driving 20mph the rpms were up to 5 or 6. What could this be?


Hi Alaina:
I'd be guessing that it was in low gear.
Either it was accidently shifted to the low position, or the shift mechanism may not be functioning properly.

Ford Escape will barely move when put in gear. (D or R) Floored to get to 10 MPH


If it smells of raw fuel look for a shorted injector dumping fuel into the engine

Gear Shift not shifting properly


Depending on whether it is a column shift or floor, you have to get the linkage loose enough to get the car in neutral, move the selector back to the proper setting, and tighten everything up.

If the car is not setting on a hill or incline, you should be able to move the shift levers by hand when you've loosened the linkage and move it until it is in neutral. Put on jack stands and chock the wheels that are on the ground.
