While driving our vechile the wrench lights comes on , then we fill a jerk turn the car off an on. Then it is okay for a little while then the same thing happens again, but the engine lights comes on as well. Not safe to drive. Unfair that it is only covered after so many miles. When you know you have a big problem in the beginning. We brought our car used with 51,000 milses. We tried to get it in the dearlship everytime the light came on. But nothing. What are we supposed to do now. The lights comes on while the car is moving.
Abs light and engine light came on while driving and vehicle shut down completely. Towed to shop to have replaced the alternator and battery bad. Since then 3- alternators, 2- batteries, 3- O2 sensors, and an airbag light that blinks on and off and illuminates when you honk the horn on the steering wheel. Also when turning on headlights, all dash lights and stereo console lights dim to almost invisible. Took to 4 different Ford dealerships and no one can figure out the problem!!!! this company should realize this car is a lemon, and back their workmanship. And blow this car up !!!.

While driving the Ford Escape on a main road today the vehicle suddenly started to idle very rough, the orange wrench light came on and I could not accelerate. The car decelerated rapidly as I was going up a slight hill. I was able to coast into a parking lot, where I shut the car off for several minutes, then turned it back on and proceeded home. I have called the Ford dealership to bring the car in for service.
Driving and truck just cuts off. Took it to the shop and first they thought it was a mass air flow sensor. . But the problem still happened. Then it was said it might be throttle body. I just bought this car less than a month ago and already having major problems.

My mother owns a 2014 Ford Escape with the 1. 6l turbocharged ecoboost engine. She notes that the fuel sensors in the car aren't injecting fuel into the engine when she accelerates from a stop, meaning the car will stick in neutral and rev until it kicks back in gear. She notes that this has happened multiple times. We had taken it to keller bros. Ford which is where she purchased it, and they couldn't come up with the problem. So then we went to new holland Ford, and they were able to find the problem. The guy even showed my mom how to reset the fuel sensor. But the problem came back up again. My mom, I, and her boyfriend are at the point where if sometime the car hesitates, and someone hits her, she's going to be killed. Ford, you need to do something about this. I don't want my mother killed. So recall the Escape 1. 6l's that have the problem and come up with a solution.

The automatic transmission in my 2010 Ford Escape started "flaring" between 2nd and 3rd gears "flaring" is a term used by Ford to describe when the transmission delays shifting between gears and the engine revs until it finally shifts. . This has not really been a safety issue until two weeks ago. It started "flaring" occasionally between 1st and 2nd gears also. This is a concern because I'm not up to speed when this happens between 1st and 2nd. With traffic being heavy at times, I'm concerned that someone could rearend me when this happens. The dearer along with the Ford representative haven't been able to resolve the problem between 2nd and 3rd gears so I doubt they will resolve this problem either. I'm further concerned that it could start happening with 1st gear and I could start to enter a highway and the car would not accelerate when intended and then suddenly accelerate when it wasn't safe to do so.

This happened twice in less than a month. Driving the Ford Escape at lower speeds (less than 40 mph) on a city street during morning traffic hours. Suddenly heard a continuous loud sound on the rear right of car. Vehicle then lost power. Engine shut down. Had to pull to the shoulder and restart the car. Then it worked fine. The dealer could not find any error codes when I took in for service. The air conditioner was on. Outside temperature was around 70f. Not raining.
I was with my daughter on our way to take her back to college. While in motion driving westbound on 595 (a major hwy) my vehicle felt to have surged and lulled, surged and lulled a few times as I accelerated pulling on to 595 (an entrance with a slight incline) I continued to accelerate to safely merge with traffic on 595 w within moments the little yellow/orange "wrench" light illuminated on my dash and suddenly I had no control over my acceleration. My vehicle did not respond to my applying gas and I watched the speedometer rapidly drop before my eyes from 68 mph to 16 mph as I did my best to cross over several lanes in fast traffic to an exit for 95 n which was fortunately there. My vehicle "limped" (identically as others have shared) and I safely pulled over onto the grass where I waited the next 1. 5 hours for the tow truck to tow me home at 9:00 p. M. While waiting I began trouble shooting my vehicles issue based on what the manual had stated and was terribly disappointed to find all the information regarding the etc and to learn that my vehicle was indeed one of those which was extended and with this defective part. I had not received the letter and so I was unaware of the "recall that wasn't. . . " it was an unfortunate experience and needless to say I am very disappointed in Ford's lack of accountability. From what I've read this could have been much worse. Now I am left with having to go to the dealership and hoping they address the real issue at hand and be accountable now and stand behind their vehicles. My Ford has never left me stranded until now and sadly so this malfunction/defect could have been avoided had Ford focused on customer safety and service satisfaction. I've owned 2 Fords and would like to continue to do things the american way. Ford will need to step it up and do their part!.
I put my 2008 Escape in park, removed the keys from the ignition and exited the vehicle. I walked approximately 60 yards and was informed by a bystander that my vehicle was rolling away. The 2008 for Escape rolled approximately 200 yards down hill into a tree. I went to the vehicle and the gearshift was now in the "r" position after striking the tree. I know there was a recall for such a problem on certain Ford Escapes. According to Ford my VIN number was not included in the recall.

I have a 2012 Ford Escape. I have had it for a year and it just started acting up. The first time this happened was sept 12, 16 while I was headed to work. While accerlerating from being in park, the throttle body/ power train light illuminates causing the car to not accelerate like it should and a lot of squeaking comes from the car. So, I have to put the car in park and turn off the egnition. Once I turn it back on it goes back to driving normally. This has happened six times within 45 days.

I was driving home Friday afternoon when my car suddenly started to choke down. I was not going more than 25 mph because I had just recently drove over a speed bump. I lost all power and was unable to accelerate. I cruised over to the side of the road and put my car in park. I noticed a wrench light come on and I then turned the car off. Once I had someone there to follow me home, I cranked my car back up and drove very slowly the rest of the way(3 miles max) to my house. The car did take a few extra seconds to crank but seemed to do fine on the trip home. We took it to the dealership first thing the next morning and they are supposed to run a diagnostic test on it sometime today.
Recall has expired on my SUV due to it being over 150,000 miles. I didnt not recieve a letter indicating that I needed this update done to my car until Aug 19 2016 when my car started to loose power with the wrench symbol being displayed on the dash. I called customer service on Aug 20 2016 and spoke to representive that told me that my car had a recall on it that I needed to have done and said that I had 10 years from the time the car was made or 150,000 miles to have the service completed. I did tell him that my car was over the 150,000 but he told me that the service could still be done due to it being within the 10 year mark and that I should take to a Ford dealership. So on Aug 21 2016 I had my car towed to the Ford dealership in greenville SC where now I am being told that the serive can not be done because I have over 150,000 miles. It will cost me $101. 00 to have them check it plus the amount to repair it not to mention I am out of the money it costed me to have it towed to that location. If I had been told the service could not be done I would not have taken it there in the first place. I feel I should get some kind of compensation since I am out of money and never even recieved the recall letter. Oh nor have I been able to speak to a manager from customer service.
The wrench light comes on. Whenever it does car almost goes into a stall of sorts and am unable to go above 55 mph on highway. I know there was a safety issue with this but no real recall that ended July 2015. The warranty extended from what I have read. Can I still get this fixed under warranty?.

Like millions of other Ford Escape owners, I have a big problem with the throttle body on my 2010 Ford Escape limited v6. First I completely lost all propulsion/acelaration while driving at approx. 35mph. Coasted to side of road, turned engine off. Turned engine on and voila! runs just fine. Several weeks later, at 75mph full loss of proplusion on a major highway, coasted to side of road, turned engine off. Turned engine on and voila! runs just fine, until about 5miles down the road when it happed again. Then about another 3wks later, it happened again on a backroad in nc at about 60mph. This trip it happened several times and finally once I got parked and turned the engine off and back on (just to check), the check engine light came on. When I left my location, praying I'd make it home, no engine light, but now the wrench light came on. Stopped for gas (I had too, I was traveling through the country) and when I restarted the vehicle, no engine light or wrench light indicator. This problem has happened again on two more occasions yet neither problem indicator light has illuminated. I've had the truck "computer scanned" with no error/problem codes showing up. I've called 2 different dealerships, who told me "flat out" . . . No problem lights/code. . . No fix under the "customer service extended warranty. You'll have to pay out of pocket. Millions of these vehicles have been given the so called "dustomer service extended warranty" yet the stipulations it makes it virtually impossible to obtain the necessary repairs of a known defective part/system malfunction. If by chance the indicator lights do show up, they won't even accept a picture, showing mileage or something to verify it's that vehicle or take a document from another reliable source (I. E. , advance auto, etc. ) we need a recall! please help!.
