Have a 2004 Ford Escape/almost 200,000 miles. Has been maintained very well. Has been dependable until about 6 months ago. Here is the scenerio:


1. engine gets hot from 30 min or more of heavy driving/not idling.


2. shut off engine at least 15 min or more.


3. engine will not restart keeps dying- unless you give it gas and hold down on gas pedal at least a min or more.


Engine will Crank, has never died while driving or idling in traffic. New fuel pump in 2006/my fault, long story. New fuel pressure regulator/June 2014. This


problem only happens intermittently. Any Ideas?

I would replace the hoses and thermostat just to be safe. Next guess would be the water pump.

If the no start only happens when it's overheated I would fix the overheat problem first.
