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?

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!

2008 Ford Escape Horn fuse keeps blowing after replacing alternator. Horn sounds once then the fuse blows. Also radio and song info that displays in the dash console with the compass does not work... The...


I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

My 2003 Ford Escapes gas pedel sticks when you try to take off.


The most common reason for this is a buildup around the butterfly valve in the throttle body. Under the hood, find the intake hose that runs from the air cleaner box to the intake of the engine. Remove the hose from the throttle body.

On the inside of the throttle body, you will see the butterfly valve which opens when you press the gas pedal. Clean the throttle body with a suitable cleaner such as Throttle Body Cleaner, which can be found at your local parts store. An old toothbrush and rags work well for cleaning the valve and behind the valve. Dry everything up and reassemble.

Other reasons could be sticking linkages at the throttle body that actuate the butterfly valve, or something as simple as your floor mat catching the pedal when depressed.

Ford Escape goes dead


You started the right way.
It sounds like it needs a tune-up.
Change the sparkplugs - Use Autolite Platinum ($3.87 for two at WalMart; $6 each at AutoZone)

Also, check for faulty sparkplug cables as follows:
1. When it is getting dark outside, set the parking/emergency brake.
2. Open the hood.
3. Start the car and look under hood for "sparks" from the sparkplug cables to the engine (or other metal part).
4. DON'T TOUCH anything under the hood! The cables can shock you (bad!) or the fan can cut you or the Boogeyman may reach out ... (sorry)...
5. Turn off car .. that ends the cable spark test.
6. Replace ALL sparkplug cables if any create a light show under the hood.

Hope this helps!
(It's the plugs)

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.
