After short drives and usually a 15 minute to 30 minute rest, the car starts up but after short drives the car begins to stall out like fuel is cut off and dies after driving a very short distance. Putting the car in neutral and giving it gas does not stabilize the car and it dies. Does do this all the time but it has happened 7 or 8 times over a 2 month period. . The mechanic finds nothing wrong and no service info from Ford.

Failure Date: 02/28/2017

2013 Ford Escape sel stalling when accelerating from a stop. This has happened several times with my wife driving the car. We've taken it into the local Ford dealership only to be told they cant replicate issue. Driving the car to work today (my wife now drives my car for safety concerns), the Escape hesitated when pulling out of the parking lot and onto the road. Have another appointment to have it looked at but will probably be told that it can't be replicated. This car only has 60k miles and is totally worthless, and unsafe to drive.

car   Car Stall problem 10
Failure Date: 11/08/2016

While driving down the road about 50mph, the car lost all power and it actually felt as if the someone had depressed the brakes. Since I had not hit the brakes the car behind me did not see any brake lights and almost rammed me. The engine light came on briefly at some point but I can't remember exactly when. My car then stalled. I was able to drift to the side out of the way. I tried starting and it would not start. After about 15 minutes it did start up and drove perfectly fine. This has happened to me 3 times over the past couple of months. I searched recalls and found recall 14s17 and notified Ford. They said it doesn't cover my VIN. Why doesn't it? this is the problem I am having and it looks like many other people are experiencing the same issue. This has the potential to cause an accident, hurt someone or even cause death! my car was manufactured in Nov 2012 and the recall states that it covers Jan 2012 to April 2013 but not my vehicle. Why???.

Failure Date: 10/25/2016

I was driving and as I was approaching the red light my car stalled. I turned it off and on three times until I finally was able to move it. My main concern is safety should it stall when im driving. I have a 1. 6l but it is not covered under the recall 14s17, should that be the issue. The symptoms seem to match, and the issue is extremely frustrating.

car   Car Stall problem 14
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: 06/20/2016

Car continually stalls. Error message says engine fault service now. It can happen coming out of the drive way or driving at 50 miles an hour. Dealer says nothing is wrong! this is dangerous! it's been happening for over a year now.

car   Car Stall problem 16
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.

My engine light came on and my car started to stall and not drive. It started to skip and at as if it was not going to go while driving. When I stopped it started to act as if it was going to cut off in the street. I had to get it towed to a dealership. They said it was my engine wiring system. Cost 500 dollars to fix.

car   Car Stall problem 20
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 21
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 25
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.
