The idle speed sensor (throttle position sensor)may need to be replaced.

    I am not sure exactly where the throttle position sensor is on a 2002 Escape, but you can go to your local auto parts store and get a Chilton's Repair Manual, it will tell you exactly where it is located on your vehicle. Once you locate it, it is pretty straight forward on changing it.

Our 2002 ford escape with 52000 miles on it all of a sudden started to lose power and barely runs now

there there is no check engine light there is no misfire. Next i would recommend putting a fuel gauge on the car and check the pressure at idle i believe that car should at 65psi at idle.

2003 ford escape , runs fine all week then wont stay runnin g unless you keep giving gas ,

Sounds like a sticking idle air control valve,it's a small cylinder with 2 wires and is mounted on or just behind the throttle body, it has 2 8 mm bolts holding it in ,if it act up again try tapping lightly with screwdriver handle if idle picks up ,it needs to be removed and cleaned or replaced

Do they stay on with high and low beam? If high or low beam make a difference then you likely need a multi-function switch. If they stay on regardless of high or low beam your Daytime Running Light Module (DRL) may be faulty. It should be located on the rad support, ahead of the radiator. Once you located it, unplug it and see if your lights go out. If they do, replace the DRL. If they do not you likely need a headlight switch.

Ford Escape will barely move when put in gear. (D or R) Floored to get to 10 MPH

If it smells of raw fuel look for a shorted injector dumping fuel into the engine

2002 ford escape starts but wont stay running unless the foot is kept on the pedal. took it to a shop and had a diagnostic test on it. It's saying there is nothing wrong. Mechanic said it must be

Computers rarely fail. The diagnostic would not show anything wrong unless a trouble code is set UNLESS the diagnostic used live data vieew. Most shops dont do that . So at what RPM does it not die? How many miles are on it? Ford uses something called an idle air speed motor. They are prone to fouling.

My 2002 ford escape starts but wont stay running could it be the fuel pump?

Im not a car expert but it sounds you could have a problem with your car battery or alternator (motor that distributes electricity throughout your car) or you could have run out spark plugs....Another option would be checking the fuel line and filter!

My 2002 Ford Escape starts, but won't stay running. When I take my foot off the gas and press the brake to put it in gear, it stalls. Alternator, battery and starter are new.

check the air intake hose from the air filter box to the intake for any leaks make sure it's on and tight. If that's good I would lean to the idle air control valve which is bolted on the upper intake near the throttle body normally round bolted to intake with (2) 8mm bolts. Before you replace it unbolt it and make sure it's not clogged up and make sure that the hole on the intake isn't clogged up.

The car wont stay running when in the run possion

OK lets start with this..

I am guessing that when you say possion you are meaning you gear selector and when you put it in say drive.

If that is the case.....

Your problem is most likely the fuel pump relay or fuel pump itself.
Start with checking, or have it checked, the fuel pressure at the fuel rail.

If the pressure is low then a fuel pump can be suspect. There are then other test which have to be performed to see where the exact problem is.
