Question about 2005 Ford Escape

1 Answer

I was told the PCM, coil pack and the catalytic converter in my 05 Escape was bad. I was quoted nearly $4k for the repair and the car is barely worth $6k? Any suggestions?

Without labor your looking at a couple
hundred on exhaust and a hundred for coil
The pcm --doesn't sound right

I'am going to look on NAPA and get back to you

    Napa is site is down
    Anyway exhaust parts,O2 sensors,coil pack
    even pcm,your under a thousand and an hour
    to install plus the exhaust labor
    Except for the exhaust, you can do all the other
    stuff in a couple hours. at home. If you need a pcm, then
    it would have to be updated.

My 2004 GMC Envoy all of a sudden started running very rough. Also has a bad smell like rotten eggs(catalytic converter smell but very strong) Very bad performance. Problem?


sounds like cat converter just about completely clogged and the back pressure from it is choking the vehicle causing the cylinder failure --the exhaust cant escape and will kill [stall] the engine--- with it running feel the exhaust coming out if there is barely any flow from tailpipe cat conv has failed [clogged ] and will need replacement -----when check engine light flashes it is to advise that u have a malfunction that needs immediate attention or further damage may occur and or vehicle shut down may occure

How can you tell which catalytic converter is bad on an 03 navigator


You have 4 oxygen sensors,1 at each exhaust manifold and 1 after each catalytic converters.Usually a scan tool won't pin point which sensor is bad.It can get real expensive just replacing parts.The easy and cheapest way to find out is take to dealer for oil change and they will scan it for free and tell you what is wrong and the cost,you have option,to let them repair or fix yourself,now you know what is wrong,I take my Truck to dealer for oil changes to get free scan.

Catalytic converter has plugged up twice in 3000 miles


Catalytic convertor fails due to oil burning, recent head gasket, improper fuel control,but plugging up at 3000 mile misfire surely plug it up when the vehicle is dumping gas in the catalytic, lean misfire ,running very rich due to a coolant temperature.Who is putting this on?I dont know what state you are from,a catalytic should not be installed unless the vehicle is in proper fuel control.and whoever installed this should foot the bill. You need to claim warranty regardless and plus there is a EO# that must match the vehicle.

05 Ford Escape, coils #3 & #4 not firing. We've replaced the battery, spark plugs, alternator, coil packs, & pcm. Had pcm reflashed. Garage said it had to be coil packs, but just replaced coil packs 3


Check engine light on ? Code's ? What engine ? 2.3 l 4cylinder or 3.ol v-6 This vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , not coil packs ! a coil per cylinder . If new coils an still has no spark , has no B+ voltage to the coil or the PCM isn't controlling them . Without testing i'd only be guessing as to the problem .If the repair shop you had it to can only say it had to be the coils , I'd find another shop to take it to !

4.7l V-8---error code P0308 is being displayed---about a year ago, I replaced the plugs and all 8 coil packs---thanks


Hi. This P0308 code means that the the PCM has detected that one of the engine's cylinders are not firing properly. In this case it will be cylinder Number 8.

A code P0308 may indicate that one or more of the following has occurred:

1 Faulty spark plug or wire
2 Faulty coil (pack)
3 Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
4 Faulty fuel injector
5 Burned exhaust valve
6 Faulty catalytic converter(s)
7 Running out of fuel
8 Poor compression
9 Defective computer

If there are no symptoms, the first thing to do is to reset the code, with a code reader, and see if it comes back. If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the affected cylinder and plug/coil assembly. Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs-COP-). In some cases, the catalytic converter has collapsed. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your converter may need to be replaced. I've also been told several times that the problem in this case could be a faulty injector at that cylinder 8.

My friend has an 05 Ford Escape. His mechanic claims that 3 coil packs were bad, now is saying the ecu is bad. The mechanic claims the only one that can program the new computer is Ford. is this correcy?


in most cases reprograming the pcm is a dealer thing unless you can find a shop that can but highly unlikly most shops dont have this equiptment

Catalytic converter shot


3 front coils? Ignition coils? If the engine had a miss for a long time the excess fuel can ruin a catalytic converter.
