Overheated and now it wont start


overhet then smoke as I'm sure you know is not good. then shut off and will not start, sounds like a blown head gasket, this would allow coolant to escape to the point of overheating, and the smoking as well, coolant in the cylinders via a blown gasket would prevent starting. DW Mylin

Driving home from church today and my radio in my 2003 Ford Escape just shuts off, Thought I had a ghost. Got home turned it off. Tried to start it up again, nothing. All the bells and whistles go off but...


Sounds like you have a problem with your charging system.
I would have the battery load tested and have the alternator tested also for proper output.
This can be done by your mechanic or auto parts store.
If you are a AAA member they will come to you and perform those test at no charge and install a battery if needed for a fee.
You can also try to jumpstart the car.

2003 Ford Escape leaking red fluid


Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!

I have a 2003 Ford Escape with a PO420 error code. When I accelerate, it sounds like air is coming from my engine. What is the problem and what should I do?


Here's what the code means, P0420 -- Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1).
Causes: Bad O2 senor, bad catalytic converter, and/or leaking exhaust manifold.


The error is coming from the O2 sensor number 1 between the exhaust manifold and the catalytic converter. The sensor itself may not be the problem. From what your describing is maybe a leak coming somewhere near the exhaust manifold. This would set off the P0420 code. Look around the exhaust manifold down to the catalytic converter for leaks that will leave black marks from burned fuel. If this can't be easily found, you may have to take the car in and have the exhaust hooked up to a smoke machine. This will inject smoke into the tail pipe and any leaks will be found by the smoke coming out of it.

Headlight went out in 2003 ford escape i have


you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.
