Car Stall problems of the 2013 Ford Escape
Nine problems associated with car stall have been reported for the 2013 Ford Escape.
Car Stall problem #1
The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1FMCU0J97D_. My 2013 Ford Escape stalled twice while going slow on a local road in July of this year. After the second stall (a week apart) I brought it in for service (levittown Ford) and they could not find nor recreate the problem (they had it 4 days). It stalled again twice on Sunday October 13, 2013, once going through the ez pass lane at the verrazano bridge and again about 45 mins later on a secondary road in NJ, again going slow (under 15 mph). We reported this to levittown Ford service and also to corporate. The service department told me that when it happens again we shouldn't restart the car and call for Ford roadside assistance. Corporate has not returned my call. We are concerned that we may get rear ended in a serious accident if the car stalls again and the car / truck behind us doesn't stop in time (e. G. Harry chapin on the lie) I don't believe the break lights would go on since the car completely shuts off. We transport our two grandchildren two days a week from school / nursery school and are extremely concerned. Is there anything we can do?. This car stall problem happened on Sun., Oct. 13, 2013.
Car Stall problem #2
The VIN of the car is 1FMCU9GX4D_. The vehicle was a 2013 Ford Escape. The contact stated that the engine gases and fumes entered the passenger compartment due to a defective windshield dowing that caused engine compartment seal to fail. In addition, the vehicle stalled several times without warning. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times for the failures and a diagnostic was performed but did not generate a diagnosis of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 156 and the current mileage was 64,000. It was Feb. 16, 2013 when this car stall issue occurred.
Car Stall problem #3
The vehicle involved is a 2013 Ford Escape. Vehicle stalls, cuts off for no apparent reason. Most recently on an exit ramp, almost got hit from behind. Will usually start right back up and run normally. Has happened 4 times in the last 6 weeks. Dealer could find no codes, left at dealership over weekend, but it didn't happen for them. My sister has the same year, make, model, and problem. This car stall issue occurred Aug. 28, 2013.
Car Stall problem #4
The car was a 2013 Ford Escape. Within just 3 weeks of purchasing our certified pre-owned 2013 Escape titanium (16k miles), the vehicle stalled twice while stopping at an intersection. Dash lights come on, put it in park, turn it off and restart and I am back on the road. Now 2 months since purchase, it has stalled like this 7 times. A few times, we have gotten the "engine fault take vehicle for service" message when starting the vehicle, but this does not coincide with the days of the stalls. I have taken it to the local Ford dealership twice to no avail. The vehicles computer is not storing any codes to identify the failure. Technicians have driven the vehicle extensively with a laptop constantly diagnosing searching for issues. Nothing. This is truly unbelievable to me that this problem is possible in a new vehicle, let alone that it cannot be diagnosed! I am very worried after reading other complaints on this site that it may just be a matter of time before it stalls in busy traffic. This issue happened on Tuesday, September 17, 2013.
Car Stall problem #5
2013 Ford Escape 2. 0 ecoboost stalled at a stop sign 8/21/13. The car stereo shut off first then a oil light went on and the car completely turned off. I was able to put it in park and restart the car like nothing happened. The Ford dealership said there were error codes but they could not duplicate the problem. Nothing was fixed told us to keep driving it until it happened again. We were not happy. Today 9/7/13, this time the car stalled at a stoplight, but the power stayed on oil light was on. There were no rpms. Had to put car in park and restart. We started to drive to the dealership and it stalled a 2nd time about a half mile away same issue every time the red oil light appears. We have no answer to what is causing this problem. It was 08/21/2013 when this car stall issue happened.
Car Stall problem #6
The vehicle having this issue was a 2013 Ford Escape. Was driving on manetto hill road in plainview, NY when vehicle stalled. No power to the accelerator. Kept pressing the gas, and the car didn't move. No warning chimes, no appearance of anything wrong-radio was playing, ac, etc. Was able to pull over (roll to the side of the road), put the car in park and restarted it. The computer then showed "engine fault service now" drove to a local gas station, though the car was bucking and difficult to drive. Car was then towed to dealership service station. Have learned that there are multiple TSB's issued for my car, but no recall. Parts are not available so the car remains at dealership service station. I was lucky I was not in rush hour traffic or on/getting on or off a highway when the car died. I shudder to think what would have happened then. This issue happened on Wednesday, August 7, 2013.
Car Stall problem #7
The vehicle involved is a 2013 Ford Escape. The VIN of the problem Escape is 1FMCU9H9XD_. First thing in the morning, after car was off for more than 10 hours, I started car to see engine fault service now" error. Backed a few feet out of garage, turned off vehicle. Turned vehicle back on about 5 minutes later. No error. Drove car for about 10-15 minutes. No problems. Turned car off. Restarted car 70 minutes later to see engine fault service now error appeared again. Drove car for 10-15 minutes with hesitation, lurching and nearly stalling. Turned car off. Took to dealer next day. They could not see the error in the computer. This car stall issue occurred Jul. 21, 2013.
Car Stall problem #8
The VIN of this vehicle was 1FMCU9G97D_. I just leased a new car, a 2013 Ford Escape with a 2. 0 l ecoboost engine. I had only filled the tank once before I noticed serious problems; whenever I came to a stop, the Escape would shudder and stall or simply turn off. It happened on multiple occasions daily for about a week before I could take it to the shop. As a surgeon, I typically get off much later than the Ford dealership was open. They have taken it for repair, but it was pretty scary because it would shake and rattle when accelerating sometimes and I was concerned it might stall mid intersection. Luckily it only stalled when I had come to a stop. This issue happened on 05/02/2013.
Car Stall problem #9
The vehicle is a 2013 Ford Escape. Since January, my 2013 Escape has been in the shop on three separate occasions for the same major engine issue. From the driver's perspective, the car lurches and jerks and feels as though it will stall. Then a “service engine now” light appears. This occurs shortly after I pull out of my driveway and proceed on flat city blocks. This lurching/jerking is frightening and feels unsafe. I have been told from the Ford service advisor that they have twice replaced the m. A. P. Sensor and connector. 3/22/13, 4/3/13. Now the car is at Ford 4/29/13 with the same exact symptoms. I await a call from Ford service to give me the latest diagnosis/prognosis. There are other issues involving the sync system that are also in the case record. Suffice to say, sync is not working as advertised. For example, the clock is inconsistent and the navigation system is adversely affected by pairing with bluetooth devices such as the iphone. I am aware that Ford is aware of these bugs. At present, I was advised not to pair my devices which is inconvenient to say the least. The lurking/jerking is the main complaint however. This problem occurred on Friday, Mar. 22, 2013.
