How do I find the engine number on a 2008 Ford Escape?

    There is no plastic cover over the engine - so we still haven't found it. I forgot to metion, we do NOT have the hybrid version - ours runs on straight gasoline - perhaps that makes a difference. We need the number because we live in Brazil (had the car shipped here from the States) and there is a crazy new rule to register your car here you have to provide the engine number - silly, but it has to be done.

The engine number should be located on the engine block. It might be difficult to find from above. It is going to be located on the side of the block where the block meets the head(not sure which side) or just above the oil pan. It will be pressed into the block. You might need to use engine degreaser to clean the engine block so you can read the number. You might need to try and get it from under the engine compartment using a flashlight and a mirror.

Hello. I can assist you. The plastic engine cover can be removed by lifting up on each of the four corners, no tools required. Under it you will find the 12 digit engine serial number. Regards, Joe

SOURCE: HOW TO INSTALL AHITCH ON A 2008 FORD ESCAPE

I have a 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid. The best hitch is the one available at your Ford dealer parts department. You cannot install a generic hitch because this is a unitized body/frame car. The Ford hitch bolts right onto existing bolts. It took me only about 2 hours to do the job. You have to cut a small square hole in the plastic bumper for the hitch to stick out.

SOURCE: I'm russian. I've got Ford Escape

we have the same problem here in spain with american built vehicles ,When i come to do the paperwork and their is no engine number and the spanish authorities insist on numbers on everything and three copies of it all with stamps on.So when i get a crysler gran voyager or ford mercury with no chassis number stamped in the actual chassis ,just a silly plate in the dash which means nothing here .I do a bit of doctoring before the vehicle goes for its mechanical inspection and they evan measure it for height and width and length and they look for the stamped chassis number which on all american vehicles i take to the test and they are always in the same place .Drivers side on top of suspension ,and engine number stamped on a nice area of the block,thats accessable ,if no engine number exists then use the last 6 numbers of the chassis number .----know what i mean

SOURCE: I had a hole patched in the gas tank of a 2008

When the engine light is on you have a problem detected by the computer on your vehicle which could be related to the fuel gauge not reading correctly or not at all. You can go to the local parts store and they will read your codes generally for free. You can post the codes they read on here and we can try and help you out. Did they take your fuel tank out from under the vehicle to repair it? If so they may not have hooked up the connector on top of the fuel tank so the sender will work. Did it work at all after they did the work? var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_afc0274c10a74ee6baea7ce7c5283487(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Hi, Quang : Refer to your point 3) , the ECU or ECM for 2008 and 2004 Escape are different. My suggestion is to buy one correct regulator with WAI number F603. ( http://search.waiglobal.com/bomsearch/bomsearch.aspx?search=bom&part=8259N ), and exchange it with the regulator on Motorcraft GL979 . F603 is a regulator mounted on WAI alternator number 8259N ( http://search.waiglobal.com/vehiclelookup/partnum.aspx?part=8259N) . The alternator 8259N is applied for your car.

Dear Sirs, I'm now living in VietNam, my friend is living in US. He already sent to me the Motorcraft GL979 alternator 2 weeks ago(The part number: 8L8T-10300-AA), but my car is 2004 Ford Escape 3.0V6,...


my guess is that you have no voltage from the alternator to the battery, what does the voltage read on the alternator when running? the ecm or ecu or whatever has no control over this, check the circuit from alt to batt and check ground also, either one will give you a headache
