    The engine of my Escape seems as though it is going to die when I am at a red light or completely stationary. A warning light appears but im not sure what the symbol stands for and its not the oil or the battery. The symbol looks like a square with two caps attached on each side.

This happened to my wife's Ford Escape and it ended up being the alternator. We had to replace it and it cost around $700-800.

My 2003 Ford Escape had a bad crank shaft sensor which, would cause it to stall out, mainly when the engine was hot. It often would not start after I turned off after a long drive. Once the engine was cool it would re-start. The replacement sensor was a bit differennt then the original. The original appeared to be mostly plastic, while the new one was metal. Ford must have know they had a problem part.

Check to see if you have had your car serviced for the ABS recall. You will want to do this timely as it is a fire hazard.

2002 Escape


no...the valve can be replaced without any "computer change"...the PCM constantly monitors variations in sensor signal strength and accommodates changes to compensate for this. A new valve will not "un-calibrate" the PCM. The PCM will merely begin a new "data record" for it....with possible slow results at first lasting from as short as one minute to possibly nearly a week of driving.
