car   Car Stall problem 1
Failure Date: 06/21/2016

The car would occasionally loose power. It would stall out soon after starting the car and putting the car in drive. I thought perhaps I was accelerating too soon after starting the car. I would start the car then wait a few seconds. The car still stalled while in motion. Several times I had to steer to the side of the road to restart the car. I'm lucky no one was close behind me. The last time it stalled, I was on a busy city street. I had just picked my son up from summer camp. The car stalled as I merged into traffic after leaving the parking lot. The car stopped running with no warning. The engine light came on and stayed on. The dealership says its the scensor that is not covered under warranty. My car has been in the shop for 8 days now and I still don't have it back. It seems like more than just a scensor issue to have it that long. I am in a rental vehicle until repairs are complete. This has been costly even though I was given a discount by the dealership on car rental. I had no choice to rent a car. I was attending a family reunion out of town June 23rd thru June 26th. I couldn't risk driving my car putting my family and myself in danger on the highway. .

Failure Date: 06/01/2016

A warning indicator will appear on the dash stating "engine malfunction service now". The car shudders, jerks, hesitates and can stall when the throttle is pushed. Pulling over, powering the car down, and turning it back on seems to temporarily resolve it. Issue may be associated with high temperatures since this was serviced in August of 2016. After 5 trips to the dealer with repairs related to the wiring harness, I was told it was resolved. The problem has recurred starting in June of this year. Went to the Ford dealer again and they failed to diagnose. Drove it to the dealer in failure mode with warning displayed to prove there is an issue. This happens when in motion. I have video of the error display.

Engine fault service now light comes on frequently. Dealership replace map sensor. Worked for one week. Continues to happen which causes car to hesitate and stall. Garage says I have to drive it there when message comes on without shutting it off as the code clears upon shut down. Impossible to continue to drive a stalling car on the freeway to the garage. Now the computer screen above the steeing wheel went out. Less than 40,000 miles on the car. Fault message occurs when starting the car. Continues to happen.

car   Car Stall problem 7
Failure Date: 04/04/2016

Recall 14s17 specified that a faulting wiring harness for the map sensor could be repaired by splicing the wiring harness. I had this recall work performed on my vehicle in October 2014, but since then the symptoms which led to the original recall persisted. Multiple times, the vehicle has stalled in traffic on a city street, or failed to respond to throttle inputs while merging onto a highway. These are very dangerous situations. Since then, Ford motor company has issued a service bulletin advising full replacement of the same wiring harness (not just a splice). This is performed at my cost, not fmc's. Full replacement should have been the original solution to this recall, and a second recall or revision should be issued to force Ford to provide a full solution rather than a half-measure.

car   Car Stall problem 8
Failure Date: 01/28/2016

I have a 1. 6 l Ford Escape. It stalls unexpectedly - usually when I first start the car and begin to move it. Restart is hard. I have pulled out into busy highway and it has stalled several times. The accident potential was great. It may be related to the 2l recall on this vehicle just issued. N0 code was found when a mechanic read the memory. This has happened a number of times. Replaced battery and added gas conditioner. No change.

Failure Date: 03/03/2015

Vehicle loses power and stalls either idling after start or within a tenth of a mile. This occurs even if the vehicle has been driven extensively then parked and restarted or from a cold start. This condition is hazardous as power has been lost entering traffic. The car must be stopped and placed in park and restarted. This occurs about every other day. Ford dealership replaced splices in wiring harness per Ford tsb15-0005. Problem reoccurred. Returned to Ford. Throttle body replaced. Problem reoccurred; returning to Ford again.

car   Car Stall problem 12
Failure Date: 11/20/2014

The vehicle had been turned in to brown daub Ford in nazareth, PA where it was reported to have died twice on the road. They then reported it died on them twice also. They replaced the engine fuel pump as this is the ecoboost there are two pumps (one at fueltank one at engine) and returned the car. It drove for 30 minutes and died again in an intersection where it almost caused a serious accident. The dealership wrote up the complaint as car wants to stall which is not what was said. They were told it died and was dangerous, they returned it with the same mileage as they took it in so it was not test driven. This is a very dangerous problem and will cause a death. The none turbo engine has a recall for wireharness splices not done properly and that is what this sounds like. Please look into this.

car   Car Stall problem 18
Failure Date: 08/01/2014

The engine had been idleing a little rough and stalled at a stop light. It restarted and then it would idle rough and like it was going to stall again. It has stalled a total of 3 times in the last 3 days and is idleing rough. Ford dealer service dept. Not open to get looked at. This is out of the blue and when I ran an engine diagnostic it came back normal. I dont trust this car now and am in the process of trying to trade it for a new Toyota, but I am not sure I will be able to get rid of this vehicle. I see Ford has had several issues with this and so far they cant find anything wrong.

I have the 2013 Ford Escape 2. 0 with eco-boost. Suddenly it began stalling when I was in park, it has gradually began stalling when I am in drive but at a stop. Luckily it has not happened while I was in motion. The engine light comes on along with service now indicator and other dash icons. I put the vehicle in park and restart with no problem. All icon's disappear and the vehicle goes back to running normal. I have noticed it is idling roughly and a bit higher than normal about 900 rpm. It constantly idles as if it is going to stall although stalling does not always occur.

car   Car Stall problem 22
Failure Date: 06/02/2014

The car stalls at low speeds, after braking and then trying to accelerate. It's happened at least 8 times, and it's been to the Ford dealer (veterans Ford in tampa) at least 4 times to check it out, but the service dept cannot duplicate the problem. They have run tests, and checked for 'codes' in the engine, but no codes appeared, although the last time, I drove it directly to the dealer after it stalled. It always restarts, but I'm often in traffic and dangerous situations. It's very sporadic, and there is no warning before it stalls.

car   Car Stall problem 24
Failure Date: 05/25/2014

As I was slowing to turn left the car stalled in the middle of the intersection. And again, as I stopped at the stop sign, it stalled again. I took this car into the dealer ( third time) because of the stalling issue and I had just picked it up from the dealer service department, (who said they could not find anything) when the car stalled a mile away from the shop. It was closing time on a holiday weekend,when I picked it up, so they were closed by the time I turned around.

car   Car Stall problem 25
Failure Date: 05/13/2014

While turning at a speed of approximately 5 mph the car stalled causing the loss of power steering and power breaks. This was the third incident of the car stalling. "williamsburg Ford and preowned" serviced the car today and found no fault codes. Claim that they can not service the car without Ford's authorization via "recall". This vehicle is potentially dangerous once a stall occurs to a driver from side or rear impact. This needs action from the NHTSA and Ford.
