Question about 2001 Ford Escape
Have a 2001 6 cyl Ford Escape and the car is difficult to start as if the idle is too low. After the vehicle runs for several minutes it seems fine. There is a gas ododr coming from under the vehicle and not in the engine compartment. Fuel filter problem is my guess but need the opinion of an expert.
What do you mean by "as if the idle is too low", does the car start normally but then idle at less than 750 rpms? or idle rough? If either of these is the case it could be bad gas, fuel injectors or fuel pump. As far as the odor, do you every see any fluid if you look under the car? A punctured fuel line would be rare but would fit all your symptoms. hope this helps :)
