Question about 2005 Ford Escape
It sounds like you may have developed a possible problem with the catalytic converters. They may have gone bad prematurely. If possible, since the emission light came on, you should have the vehicles computer scanned for codes. If you can drive the vehicle to an autoparts store they will do this free of charge. This will give us any codes to determine the actual problem. Also, if the problem is actually emissions related you may get it covered under warranty. Federal law requires emission systems to be covered longer then the original factory warranty.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
