Question about 2001 Ford Escape

2 Answers

I have a 2007 Ford Escape XLT 4WD. The vehicle has 90K miles, and I just now have had my first mechanical issue. Its a weird one... My a/c settings do not work on 1, 2, or 3, but when turned to 4, it blows full blast, freezing cold air. There seems to be nothing wrong with the compressor, since such frigid air is coming out, but there's not as much as a whisper when turned to the first 3 settings on the dash. Any idea at all what this is? Fuses, maybe? Thank you so much for any help!

Not wierd--common problem. your resistor has failed, and the swtich may also be bad. See my tips at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6234839-doesn_t_heater_or_air_conditioner_blow .

I could not find the location of your resistor, but I believe you will find it under the dash on the passenger side. Please let me know if you have questions.

2005 ford escape awd shutters very badly upon take off up to about 30 miles per hour then gets progressively better. Is the center drive shaft bearing bad and is it repairable . Ford says the driveshaft...


Have a 2005 ford escape XLT 4WD and when I get between 45-60km per hour the vehicle shakes like I'm driving on a washboard. Took it to Ford - they told me I need a new drive shaft - $1200 with taxes and labour. I already replaced the alternator in 2007 - that was over $800 because of where it is positioned. Takes hours and hours to get at it because it is buried under the motor. I think Ford needs to give us all a discount. Sounds like these are common problems with the Ford Escape.
