On the 2005 it is actually part of the fuel pump in the tank. However, there is a fuel filter located under the vehicle, passenger side by the gas tank.

01 escape, v6 4wd, low rouph idle,difficult to start, wether cold or at operating temp. check engine light not indicating problem and is operating properly.


I would check to see if your ford has a fuel filter on it,if so and it is at the mileage to replace it go ahead and do so.Also I would check to see if it was time for a tune up.The fuel filter is pretty cheap and if you can turn a wrench you could do this job at home and save yourself some cash.Remember that after the filter is replaced cut the switch on 3 or 4 times without starting the engine to prime the filter.Hope this will help you out.

I am trying to locate the fuel filter for my 2001 ford escspe. where is it?


It is very easy locating the Fuel Filter. It is located in front of the Fuel Tank located at the Driver Side. To identify the Filter more clearly, you will see that the Filter will have 2 Hoses attached to it. These Hoses will be further attached with Clips which are usually Whitish or Yellowish. Sir, I think now you can get the location of the Fuel Filter. Contact me for Further Doubts.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Transmission filter


There is no fuel filter on a transmission, however a automatic transmission does have a drain plug, it's behind the oil pan, the transmission filter is not replaceable.There is no flat pan on the underside of this vehicle and if anyone states it does, does not know the ford escape period. On a ford taurus yes.

Fuel filter at foer escape 2001 4w chenging


start the engine  open the hood and remove the system fuse 
the engine will stall, the pressure is now relieved 
the fuel filter is in front of the fuel tank, driver side 
wear gloves/saftey glasses and have a fire extinguisher available (who knows!) the filter will have 2 hoses attached at either end. white/yellowish clips attach these hoses. feel for the top of the clip and push the 2 ends in and down. you may have to use a screw driver to pry the bottom of the clip as well. pull the bottom of the clip down, it will not come out of the coupling completely. repeat for both lines, pull lines firmly off of filter. unscrew filter from hose clamp. approx 6-10 oz of fuel will spill from lines and filter. you should use a pan. install new filter, in same direction as last. insert new clips into coupling, discard old. clip on "out" side may be reused if an R clip. tighten clamp on filter, attach hoses. push in clips to lock. inspect for leaks, wipe entire area clean of fuel. insert fuse and attempt to start. Cycle the ignition to run and off three times before starting to pressurize the fuel line. Good luck and hope this helps.

2001 Ford Escape - Bucking Engine


You need to tow this car to a service station almost immediatly, depending on what exactly is wrong you could be further damaging the vehicle. With the description you give it could be a whole mess of things but i would start with your fuel system. Have your fuel pump looked at and your injectors as well. this could also be as simple as a bad batch of gas/ water in the gas but it would not really explain why the problem ocours at higher rpms like that. Hope this helps

2001 escape


sounds like you may have to replace your fuel filter is it origional or have you replaced it before ? if the fuel pump is screaming then there is usually a restriction in the line sometimes caused by dirty fuel filter , its also possible that the electric fuel pump is on its way out they will screem when they are ready to retire first replace fuel filter and monitor the sound if it comes back after replacing the filter then you will need to have a pump replaced .also check the level of fuel in your tank when you hear the noise sometimes the level of gas in the tank drops leaving the fuel pump unsubmerged in the fuel making it easier to hear the noise follow me . replace fuel filter and diagnose the sound from there thanks for using a fine web tool like fixya
