I believe that would be the VSS or vehicle speed sensor.. Its located on the rear axle.. I would get the part directly from a ford dealer as the one I got from an auto parts store did not work correctly.. It cost about 33 dollars from ford and It is an easy change for a do it yourself person.. Kip

Tires would be the 1st place to check. If you seem to feel it more in your legs then it is likely the front, if felt more in seat bottom then could be a rear tire. Depending on how severe the vibration is there could be a tire developing a tread seperation and should be checked right away. A simple balance of the tire and wheel assemblies may be all that required also but when on a balancer they should be able to tell if the tire has a more severe problem.
Driveline components could cause vibrations also however if the above sounds like it fits then check that 1st.

I would look for a fault in the ignition system such as a cracked spark plug. Might need a scope check to put your finger on the problem

2005 ford escape xlt v6 awd. had a diagnostic test done at the dealership. said 2 of the 3 converters are clogged. they said I need a complete new exhaust system at a cost around 4000 bucks. any thoughtful...


get a second opinion you dont need the whole exhaust system---even if it the 2 manifolds have to be changed - thats a lot of money - there is a cat incorporated with each exhaust manifold so that would mean replacing the manifolds if both cats were bad thats both manifolds if your willing to do the work yourself you can change them the manifold/ cats sell on ebay new for under 200

Thumping sound when coasting in ford escape awd


I suspect there will be something loose in a CV joint, under load it will be held in place but when it is not under load it flaps around causing the thumping. You should be able to identify which side of the vehicle it is coming from then a mechanic should see it ASAP because if it lets go completely it will not only be dangerous and stop the vehicle from going anywhere it will be very expensive to fix the colateral damage.

This button turns the All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) function on and off. When the "TRACTION" light is on, the AWD function is on -- AWD should be on in snow / ice.

2005 ford escape awd shutters very badly upon take off up to about 30 miles per hour then gets progressively better. Is the center drive shaft bearing bad and is it repairable . Ford says the driveshaft...


Have a 2005 ford escape XLT 4WD and when I get between 45-60km per hour the vehicle shakes like I'm driving on a washboard. Took it to Ford - they told me I need a new drive shaft - $1200 with taxes and labour. I already replaced the alternator in 2007 - that was over $800 because of where it is positioned. Takes hours and hours to get at it because it is buried under the motor. I think Ford needs to give us all a discount. Sounds like these are common problems with the Ford Escape.
