Question about 2005 Ford Escape
I have a 2005 Ford Escape, 4 cyl 2.3L, for the last 2 months we have had a lot of problems with stalling when we pull into a place and let up on the gas. At first we thought it was bad gas, and put additive in the tank, and it worked great. The next several tankfuls, it did the same thing. It didn't stall for awhile with the additive and then it would stall again. We've replaced the fuel filter and the escape has be "reprogrammed" but know we're back to the stalling.
Help! Any ideas? I'm not trusting for Ford mechanics very much!
I just had the same problem with my 2001 Escape- replaced the fuel filter, no help. Turns out I needed to replace the idle air valve. It took 5 minutes, and I'm back up and running!

1. Air filter, clean the air filter first and try it again, if it is the air filter cause this problem and get a new one put in.
2. check your oil cover cap, see if there are some white steam bubbling mixed with oil, if it is, maybe either the head gas kit or the block leaking, also check your coolant level. sometime you will see oil in your radiator. means the block is leaking
Hope this can help a little bit
3. Cooling fan doesn’t function right and cause over heat.
4. How many miles on this car?
I wish I can be there for you, let discuss this
