    Just took a 2003 escape xlt as a part trade. Has 260,00 miles, runs, but has a chugging issue at speed. Also has an intermittent no start no crank. Seems that might be a Crank sensor. Question is, do I invest 3-4 hundred, or scrap it. How long will the 3.0 last?

    Hi all, obviously Im new here and I have Just purchased a 2005 Escape XLT V6. I had a 2000 xls v6 7 years ago before moving from England and It was difficult to let go. It took seven years to find one for sale on Tenerife, plenty of x5's, Freelanders and Landcruisers and all grossly over priced. The XLT is a big upgrade from the old XLS but that V6 power house is the same and the driveability is soul warming. Obviously buying an 05 model was going to come with a few issues, annoyingly ford making the General Electric Module Impossible to easily inspect due to two boards being sandwiched and soldered together was rather unexpected. I Bought the car for a good price at 3600 euro (170000 Km) his original asking price was 5600 euro which still wasn't bad compared with other 4wd's so Ive got plenty of headroom for repairs and improvements. Its currently booked in to have all the fluids changed and Im waiting for an OBD scanner from Russia so I can do complete diagnostics before I shell out for a GEM. Tenerife is brilliant for lack of corrosion but causes issues with wiring as copper oxidation causing connectivity issues. At this moment I have central locking issues and 02 parameter issues for which im trying a cat cleaner, but the car runs great. I have just received a set of parking sensors of which I will fit in the next few days and also have a new cd less radio coming from the states. So here I am, hoping to pick up a few tips......

    AsBuilt Data Request

    Hello! I joined the forum in hopes that a member can assist me with gathering some AsBuilt data using Forscan. I am looking for someone with a FordPass Connect equipped Escape to grab the AsBuilt from their TCU module (telematics control module). It appears that Ford does not make the AsBuilt available for download on the Motorcraft Service site. Thanks in advance!
  23. I ordered a 2020 Escape, however after the order was placed, I decided I wanted to add the Easy Access Cargo Cover (EACC).Now, here is where it gets interesting: In talking to someone on parts.ford.com, I was given the part number for the cover itself and a local dealership sells it for $115. It also requires two clips that mount to the liftgate, and two pins that the support line/string attaches to on the interior trim panels. The two retainers are $5/ea, but they cannot find the pins for the trim panel separately. I can't seem to find a part listing for them either, and the parts.ford person I spoke with claimed the only way to get them was to order the trim panels with them. Is Ford really expecting someone to order $400+ in trim panels just to get the two pin/hooks to add the EACC? The "Major" part number for the trim is the same with or without the 'package shelf' option, and in looking at one on the lot, even without the EACC, it has plugs over the holes where the hook pins go.
