I looked at info for non-hybrid. If there is a throttle cable, get at the throttle body under the hood, take the throttle cable loose, work the lever, see if moves freely? My info says throttle bore and plate has a special coating, it says not to clean it. You could lube throttle pedal linkages, see if it helps? You could use wd 40 in the throttle cable housing, from under the hood, see if helps. You might use a carpet cover in case of drips.
I don't know if tune-up had anything to do with these other problems?

2006 escape low power


My guess is you have a timing issue - some cylinders are not firing or the wires are so bad that not enough current is transferred through to the spark plugs.

You may also need a new throttle linkage cable for the gas pedal sticking problem, but this is not related to the engine power, more likely a maintenance issue such as not being regularly cleaned and lubricated or lubed with the wrong type of lube that hardens in cold temperatures.

Either your throttle cable or throttle plate is sticking. This most likely do to moisture on the cable or in the mechanism freezing do to the cold.

One I have a 2008 Ford Escape with almost 56k miles on it (not my doing for the most part). I live in South Georgia, and while it does not get super cold here, on days when it gets in the low 40s or so my...


It may be as simple as cleaning the throttle plate with some carb spray. With the engine off and preferable with the engine cold remove the air snorkel from the throttle body. Open the throttle body and see if the throttle plate has a lot of carbon build up. If it does spray it with carb spray until clean. It sometimes helps to wipe it down with some rags and then repeat until the throttle plate and throttle body are clean.

Fuel is burning out really fast 45,000 miles


You need to tune your car up. New air and gas filters.Put some new plugs and wires on the car. Check the tread and psi in your tires. Then you will get allot better gas mpg. Hope this helps!

Engine turns over but doesn't start


Did you replace the spark plugs? Did you do a tune up?
The gas may have condensation water if you didn't keep the tank full in cold weather. Try this and possibly add a cleaning agent for the clogged lines.

Car will start but sputters nad cut off. like not getting any gas. already changed fuel filter still does the same


Time for a tune-up. Inspect and replace if needed your spark plugs and wires.

If those are fine, you may have a bad fuel pump or even problems with your fuel injectors.
