SOURCE: escape will not go above 60mph and will not downshift w/gas pedal

It could very well be a restriction in the exhaust like a stopped up cat converter. I doubt if it is a torque converter,that may make it slow to get to speed but shouldn't effect hwy speeds.
You can check this vehicle for an exhaust restriction very easy by going to the DPFE sensor and measuring exhaust back pressure with a vacuum/pressure gage. It will be either silver or black in color will have 2 rubber hoses hooked to it going down to metal tubes that hook into the exhaust.It will have a 3 wire connector with the color of the wires being BN/WH,BN/LG,OG. Disconnect one of the rubber hoses from the sensor and hook the vacuum/pressure gage into the hose.You should have less than 1 psi at idle,then press accel to wide open throttle and take a reading,it should be no higher than 3-4 psi. Anything more is an exhaust restriction.

SOURCE: how do I change trans fluid on a 2008 escape hybrid

Only 2 ways that I know of....
Easiest: Suction the fluid via the dip stick tube using a drill pump (about 4 bucks at Harbor Freight or on line).
Less Easy: Remove all but one of the transmission pan bolts. With a large container under the pan, loosen the last bolt until you can pry the pan loose.... let the fluid run into the container. When it is empty, retighten that last bolt and then reinsert the removed bolts. The pan gasket should not leak when new fluid is poured into the dip stick tube (check it after about a quart is added... and snug the bolts either side of any leak).

It's shutting off while driving the red triangle show up it tell me to to safely now and shut completely off why does it do that


I think its telling you to stop the engine as safely as you can, such as not in heavy traffic. If the engine computer sees the engine is running too hot it will shut it down to prevent damage.
Have you checked the radiator and is the cooling fan working ?

I am not familiar with hybrids, but i think when you start, it's starting with the battery, so I think you have a bad connection, check and clean the battery terminals.

Ford Escape Hybrid goes dead if not driven for 3 days straight


I have the same problem with my 2007 Escape Hybrid... First experienced it about 1 year ago. The vehicle produces periodic sounds like an electric motor running for several seconds. I believe this is from the motor driven safety relay that disconnects and reconnects the high voltage hybrid battery when the vehicle is not in use. I also can hear a high frequency scream that sounds like a switching inverter power supply. If the vehicle is unused for a day or two the 12V battery is discharged and a jump is needed to start the engine. Ford service could not diagnose the problem. The +12V battery tested OK, but since it was almost 3 years old it was replaced anyway. This helped for a while, but the problem returned after I recently left the vehicle unused for several days. I know the battery is good, it tests OK and is less than one year old! Somewhat reluctant to go back to the same Ford service agency because of their previous failure to fix it. Please advise if you have found a solution or have additional information. This is the only problem I have ever had with the hybrid Escape, but it is very annoying. I am forced to carry a jumper battery to make sure I don't get stranded.

I bought a locking gas cap recently from Pep Boys. Maybe you can check online?

As for the noise.. I don't think I've heard anything like that with my 2008 Hybrid. I do notice lots of different noises but I tend to not pay much attention to them..
