Question about 2001 Ford Escape

1 Answer

My 2001 Ford Escape will turn over and crank but immediately dies. I have changes out the spark plugs and did a fuel injection cleaner. I came home from work the other day and left the air on and when I tried to crank it back up it wouldnt. The only change was the air was left on. Could the ac and vehicle not cranking have something to do with each other?

    If you can keep the engine running by holding the throttle open then you need to clean out your idle air control. Use some spray carb clean and clean out the valve. also clean your throttle plate and PCV valve.

You are describing two different problems but I think I understand that the vehicle cranks over, tries to start but stalls right away (your last sentence "vehicle not cranking" suggests that there is an issue with the starter or the battery is dead).

Without question the first thing I would do is check fuel pressure. If you don't have a fuel pressure gauge lift up the drivers rear seat, pull back the carpet, remove the access panel. You are now looking at the top of the fuel pump. When you try to start the vehicle can you hear/feel it running? If not than its probably no good.

Fuel pumps are pretty common on theses.

My 2003 Ford Escape had a bad crank shaft sensor which, would cause it to stall out, mainly when the engine was hot. It often would not start after I turned off after a long drive. Once the engine was cool it would re-start. The replacement sensor was a bit differennt then the original. The original appeared to be mostly plastic, while the new one was metal. Ford must have know they had a problem part.

Engine turns over, gets spark to plugs, no start up


Spray some starting fluid into the air cleaner if it starts then dies it is a fuel delivery issue ( bad fuel pump or the inertia switch has been tripped and must be reset) if it doesn't start it may be a crank sensor gone bad.

Engine cranks but wont start. may start but immediately dies out


hi i dont mean to sound harsh but never assume anything with cars, if the engine cranks but wont start check for a spark at the plugs if no spark then you know that the problem is ignition or electrical in nature. if you have a good spark then you need to find out if you have fuel to the engine a good trick which i use is to spray some carb or injection cleaner into the manifold via a vacuum pipe dont spray it down the intake you might set yourself on fire ! if the engine kicks and attempts to run you know its a fuel fault . come back when youve established this.
