My Ford Escape 2008 model auto transmission with mileage of 72000 started giving trouble today and scary too. After turning on the car & once starts moving, I felt like something wrong with shifting gears from first to second (vehicle moves smoothly for few meters and after that I can hear the accelerator sound, and I see the wrench sign pops up on the dash board and vehicle won't move for a few seconds, so I had to press the gas pedal up and down to move the vehicle, felt like vehicle going to stop in the middle of the traffic light. I drove my Escape home and stopped the car and again I turned on that time wrench sign was gone and started moving the vehicle and the same thing repeated - wrench sign & the problem with shifting gears. I am going to call the dealer tomorrow, because their service department closed already.

In the summer when I run the a/c we smell burning smell and the dealership that we bought it from told me to just let it catch fire and then they will look at it, and now that I'm running the heater it starts leaking oil. It smells like oil in my garage now. Sometimes while pressing on the gas pedal it doesn't go. Friday my engine coolant light came on and then went off and then came back on. I'm not sure what's going on but I want a good look at everything.

Driving down the interstate I receive a warning light "transmission fault service now". I contacted mt view Ford and was informed there is a wait on transmission work and the earliest they could get me in is December 20th. Being concerned and not wanting to wait a month and a half to get it looked at. I contacted a local transmission shop they hooked my vehicle up and received (2) internal codes 1721 & 1744. The transmission requires a complete rebuild @ 83,000 miles. I've read other customers having the same problem with these transmissions. Please issue a recall on the transmissions for the 2014 Ford Escape.

Failure Date: 11/09/2017

The gas pedal sticks often, and feels as if something is under the pedal, stopping it from being depressed. This causes sudden reduction of speed and then sudden acceleration when pressing hard to get the pedal to go down. Ford previously recalled throttle body's in Escapes from 2009-2012. I believe the 2007 Ford Escape model should be added to that recall! this is a true safety problem! mine has being doing this for about a month and has gotten way worse so it will need to be fixed.

Failure Date: 10/27/2017

Initially I had been having issues with the engine light coming on and off. Initially when I took the vehicle to be looked at, by the hunt Ford in la plata, MD. They changed the oxygen sensor. So the light went off. Then a few months later in 2016 the light came back on. Eventually I started driving on route 5 north and heard a �pop� noise in the engine area. The vehicle started to lose acceleration and would hesitate. Then eventually my check engine light came on and started blinking. Prior to the engine light blinking the car begin to misfire, hesitate when trying to accelerate, and the engine would overheat from time to time prematurely. The car would sometimes stall and misfire when trying to accelerate or when sitting idle. When I looked online it shows a recall for these specific issues for the same make, model & year, but not for my specific engine liter. For example, it shows the engine overheating, misfires and engine wiring splices may cause stall for 2013 Ford Escapes but only for 1. 6l. My car is experiencing very similar issues as those listed under the recall, but my engine is a 2. 0l. So while on my way home Friday, 10/27/2017, I started to have issues with my vehicle. I was traveling on pennsylvania Ave towards DC, when I reached an intersection (southern Ave), and the car started to jerk and then the engine light started blinking. At one point I began to see white smoke once the engine light started to blink, and smelled fumes. Not too long after that began to occur, I make a u-turn at the light and pulled over in front of the funeral home. Before I was pulled over on the side of the road (while making the u-turn) the car started to misfire and stall. So I turned the engine off, and called aaa to have it towed. A few days later I had a mechanic come and run a diagnostic on the vehicle at the home. I have attached a copy of their report.

Greetings, I have a Ford Escape 2013, 2. 5 liters, and I almost crashed because the vehicle suffered an electrical malfunction. In the screen of the car it said: "motor damage, turn off". This almost caused me to loose my life, because the car lost all the energy, stopped in the middle of the highway, and the motor was hesitating. I looked for a recall and I found a Ford number 14s17-s1 but that recall is for 2. 0 liter and my Ford Escape 2013 is 2. 5 which means that it doesn't have the same electrical wire that is recalled from the 2. 0. I went to the dealer to find an answer, but the car does this malfunction intermittently and once you turn it back on the code disappears like if nothing would have happened. I took the paper of the recall to the dealer and they said that they cant do anything because the code disappeared and my car doesn't have the same system of the 2. 0 liter.

I was driving on a freeway at 65mph and the engine cuts out to an idle. The check engine light came on. I almost got rear ended getting the car over to the side of the road since it lost all power. After pulling over I was able to start the car as the light went out. This happened 3 more times where the car would cut out to a rough idle, these occurred while I was on city streets but almost caused 1 accident as it cut out. After shutting the car off it would restart with no issue. This last time the car had to be towed to planet Ford to be repaired. They said it was a throttle body issue and it cost me over 700 for the repair even though it is still under the powertrain warranty. I do not see why this has not been recalled due to the car being unsafe to drive and I do not know why the replacement of the part alone will not cause further stalls of this vehicle. I have found other people with the same issue where the car goes into "limp home" mode. I am currently having the car repaired or I would be able to attach the invoice for the throttle body repair.

2013 Escape developed coolant leak. I saw online where this problem was a recall. When I took it in to the dealership they informed me that even though mine has the same problem my VIN# is not included in this recall! if Ford motor company knows they have this problem with this vehicle why are they not all covered? how many have to catch fire? also, they also tell me I have an oil leak in the turbo. I have never seen any evidence of an oil leak in this vehicle.
