2002 Ford Escape Repair Question
What would cause the car to die out when shifting into gear
idle air control valave may be not working. have it checked to verify.
I already took it off to see if it was plugged or stuck but it's not is there any other way to verify
you wont see anything as it pulsates when operating. visual inspection will reveal nothing. you can monitor it with a scan tool if you have one handy.
i have a scan tool will this one work and if so how do i monitor http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detail/EQU1/3100/N0664.oap?ck=Search_code+readers!s!scanners_-1_2901&keyword=code+readers!s!scanners
also to maybe you can help me with this i get a loud screeching sound its not a belt because i took the belt off that goes onto the water pump to see if it was the cause but it wasn't. the sound is coming from the camshaft pulley part will post a picture. The screeching gets louder as I rev the engine. could it be i might have overtightened a camshaft holder and it is rubbing against the camshaft journals.
that is the spot where i hear it the loudest
did you replace the timing belt?? is it tensioned properly??
as long as your tool reads all engine data
I didn't replace the timing belt, this car has a timing chain. I replaced the head gasket.
the side that I am referring to that the noise is coming from is the water pump side. the timing chain is on the opposite side of the picture i posted
if it is the cam, then it is starved for oil. i would get someone to listen to this to be sure you do not have a major problem
