2005 Ford Escape 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 62,000 miles
My Escape had the same problems I am reading about - on trip home from upstate NY to LI my Escape felt like it was running on 4 cyl. Check engine light came on. Made it home but next day died and all lights lit up. Got it to a mechanic - said needed to replace all Coils - $900.00. I had it towed again to my mechanic and he said 4 coils are bad but TSB says to replace all and computer may be fried. I now remember that my backup sensor has been going off for no reason - cleaned off sensors. My mechanic can't guarantee that computer doesn't need to be replaced and doesn't want to start work until he finds out if there is a recall or warranty of some sort - since this is a MAJOR issue with 2005, 2006 Escape and Mariners. I am now out of car for the week, can't afford to rent car and pay for repair. I wish I had looked at this website before my warranty ran out - I would have renewed it.
Can you help me? Service Mgr was not available at the 2 Ford dealerships I have had service at.
have the same problem?
