Engine Performance problem
2005 Ford Escape 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 89000 miles
My 2005, high mile Escape has been idling very hard for the past few weeks. Like up around 1 1/2 RPM's sitting still. The faster I drive the more and harder it shakes. Now. We had a "blizzard" the weekend before Christmas. It ran fine on my way to work (nurses have to go to work) I filled it up with gas on my way on Saturday morning and didn't move it until Sunday night to come home. Driving up hill the sucker stalled out and my gas hand dropped to empty. The car quickly restarted so I went to the gas station, put in $3 of gas and the pump shut off. So it was full. I noticed then that there was a burning like smell but didn't see any smoke. 8 miles later the fuel hand was fine. Now for a week the car runs ok. Still shaking and stuff. I take it to the sho and get an oil change and fuel injectors cleaned and a fuel system flush. Three days later, driving in heavy rain. The car would not go more than 20 mph with the accelerator pressed to the floor. Then it suddenly spirts up to 40mph. And it shakes really bad.
have the same problem?
