Question about 2004 Ford Escape
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, The Escape is a great vehicle, compact and great on fuel mileage. As with all vehicles, it has a few concerns that are more common specific to this vehicle. I've seen engine misfire concerns, usually caused by tiny fractures/cracks in the ignition coil housings or due to the rubber boot part of the coil deteriorating and allowing moisture to short it out. A scan tool can be used to retrieve codes that would determine which cylinder is affected.
Another concern is misfires caused by a break in the wiring between the computer (PCM) and the coils or fuel injectors. The harness constantly flexes when the vehicle accelerates and decelerates.
Another concern is the lower control arm bushing rubber deteriorating. When this happens the alignment will change and can cause tire wear.
The Escape has a short wheel base and is prone to tire wear. It's important to rotate tires regularly (7500 - 10,000) miles. If the tires wear (cup) enough the vehicle will exibit an audible roaring noise while driving.
If maintained properly, the Escape is a great vehicle.
