This sounds like you have a major air leak on the engine's Induction manifold. The depression caused assists the braking system by servo assistance. The air leak will also radically decrease the engine performance too. Look under the hood and listen for a loud hissing noise. It could be a broken vacuum pipe or a defective PCV valve. If you locate a problem. repair the offending item and retest the vehicle. Hope this helps..

2001 ford escape bad idle


Most stalling problems are due to a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve. The computer uses the valve to regulate idle speed.

2001 ford escape.. oil light comes on when at a stop and in drive. when i give it the gas the light turns off. i checked my oil,brake,coolant and tranny fliuds and are all fine????? no funny sounds????


this light is indicating your engine has low oil pressure sensed at idle, have the oil pressure checked with a special mechanical oil gauge, if the oil pressure checks ok then just replace the oil pressure sending unit, do this ASAP, if u do really have low pressure u can damage the engine bearings, a very expensive fix.

How do adjust the idle on a ford escape 2001 xlt v6 model Well the car doesn't move when you let the brake go until you push the gas. When i turn my heat or ac on the power starts acting up like the radio...


It sounds like your alternator or battery is beginning to fail. An alternator may provide enough power at idle when there is a low power load. Once you activate the heat or AC, the load is too much for a defective alternator to support.

Adjusting the idle is not the solution. Not only will it mask the electrical problem, it will prevent you from stopping your vehicle safely.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

My 2001 ford escape idles rough when cold and sometimes chokes off. There was a hose that was sucking closed. I replaced the hose with a more sturdy elbo and the problem was better. Now its as bad as...


Yes fords are notorious for the i.a.c. or idle air control going out. At my shop we change probably 5/week. The vacume elbows tent to let the oil rot the rummer and once it sucks a hole in it the engine is getting more air than fuel causing a poor running condition. (lean) If it only idles poorly but runs fine with your foot on the accelerator, then the IAC will solve your problem. Also, pull the big breather tube off of the throttle body and see if around the round butterfly it is coated with black build-up. You can use a rag and your pointer finger to work around the sides. The factory built these vehicles so that the throttle is open the slightest bit so it will idle-when the black crud builds up around it the air is blocked from entering the engine which will also cause a poor idle. Hope this helps!
