Spray a little starting fluid into the throttle body and try to see if it will start. Also, check the pressure relief valve on the fuel rail and see if any fuel comes out when you press on the schrader valve. The relief valve should have a cap on it and it looks like an air valve. The fuel should squirt out if the fuel pump is operating properly. If it dribbles out, then it's likely the fuel pump. However, after sitting for two years, it may have a clogged fuel filter or a gummed up fuel system.

2003 ford escape over heats while idleing


There are a few things which should be happening to prevent both problems.

There is a fan relay which senses heat and then turns on the electric cooling fan. Around this time, an idle control should cause the RPM to increase to help circulate the water in the engine.

Sounds like the engine is getting too lean to run because these automatic controls are not working. The hot engine is running lean.

05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it started fine but only runned for a few minutes and the engine started to stall and went off. tried to start it again and it wont turn with the same...


okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

2004 Ford Escape Electrical problem


This is a problem with the alternator. Diode rectifiers and voltage regulator replacement will give this baby a 14.2 voltage output. In this 3L V6 SUV removal of the alternator requires removing the right tire, the right axis and undercovering to reach the 6G alternator. It is a 133mm rectifier with a motorcraft, The serpentine belt is better removed from the bottom. Also keep a bucket on hand to recover the oil from the transmission.
