You may have to have the computer reflashed. Only the dealer can do that also. that is very bad for all electrical components in the car.

03 ford escape, how hard is it to change the number 2, o2 sensor downstream



  • You have four sensors on your truck. Two behind the manifold and one on each CAT. Neither are hard to change. Pull the connector and twist the old one out with a deep socket. Which downstream sensor depends on the "bank" you are going to be working on.

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.
