    2014 Ford Escape Titanium P1299 Code

    This is amazing to me that these seem to have this issue and Ford had a recall but not for my vin. I googled this P1299 an found exactly what happened to my wife's 2014 Ford Escape Titanium AWD 1.6 EcoBoost. The user had the exact same issue as follows. 1 Week ago wife received low coolant light so I filled it up. Today she remote started the vehicle and now on the screen is Engie Overheat Shut Down Engine - Cars in Limp Mode. When I say exactly I mean exactly wife had low coolant then on Saturday we got a snow storm in VA and she remote started the vehicle which he never does and sure enough she goes out to leave and it has the same alert Engine Overheat shut down engine. I get my scanner out and sure enough p1299 so I found people talking about both the Low Coolant Sensor an the Cylinder Head Sensor. I decided to just change both seeing they are near each other and only cost about $60 for both. We spent the day Sunday taking apart the Air Cleaner assembly in order to get to both and I paid $59 for AlldataDIY to see how to remove them which was a waste seeing all it does is show you pictures doesn't say anything about how they are connected to the car. Just FYI the Low Coolant Sensor has a Metal Retainer Clip that holds it in nothing more no socket needed. The Cylinder head sensor needs a big Socket to remove it as it has about 3 groves where it screws in but just FYI its not really that tight it continues to spin not sure how it keeps the fluid in the engine but after the repair no leaks. Code cleared car running fine also FYI the scan tool still shows permanent code p1299 but from what I read online some codes will not be removed until the engine collects enough data to clear the code. Lets cross our fingers that replacing these two really fixed the issue so far so good.

    Hey guys, First time time poster. So a few years ago I bought my mothers 2010, FWD, 4 cyl Escape for a few $1000 b/c I new she took care of it and a small SUV would compliment my sports sedan nicely. I am currently spending my first winter in WV and the weather has been very snowy/icy thus far. To my disappointment the differential is open and does not have any sort of system like Subaru where a brake is applied to the slipping wheel to encourage the other wheel to turn. My question is; is getting some sort of an aftermarket, locking differential viable, feasible, practical and/or realistic? Is there even such a thing/is such a thing even possible? Thank you for any input, -Ivan

    a few questions about my '01 escape

    I bought a high milage 2001 escape xlt 3.0 for the soul purpose of driving it on the beach out here on the wa. coast so i did a few things to it to help it in deep sand and mud...1 1\2 inch leveling and lift kit, 1 inch wheel spacers new suspension all the way around, 16 inch mud and snow tires on the stock wheels and off road lights. I also replaced the valve cover and intake gaskets and replaced the coil packs and spark plugs. As far as actualy modifying the motor to get more hp out of it i dont know i suppose a cold intake wouldnt hurt and guys are modifying ford escorts with the 3.0 wich is basically the same motor

    Escape: Old vs. New

    My 2001 1st gen escape is a little beast. Its more like a side by side atv fully enclosed. Ive done some suspension mods ie. lift kit wheel spacers mud and snow tires and off road lighting

  10. I just recently got the car and noticed that the charging pad is loose and not laying flat so when I put my phone on it to charge it won't. Is there any way to fix this? When I put it under the pad itl charge the phone but it won't work onto of it since it's loose.
  11. Hello, I purchased Ford factory rims with TPMS off a 2017 Escape and installed them with new snow tires onto my 2021 Escape. The TPMS light on my dash keeps coming on. It will stay on for days, then go off for a while, then come back on usually when driving on the highway. I purchased a relearn/reset tool that is supposed to work with Ford vehicles, but it did not work. Can anyone recommend a relearn tool that will work on a 2021 Escape? Thank you.

    Horrible gas milage

    Hey guys and gals. Om new to this forum. So I bought an 05 escape 3.0 xlt sport. With 160k. A couple months ago and it says on line 31 hwy-36city mpg . I get nowhere close to that . I am lucky if I get 120, miles to the tank. I drive normally and mostly highway miles. Tbe truck runs fine no skipping, no engine light, brakes good wheel bearing are on my rear are new I just did them my fronts are starting to whine a little. But other than that I can't find any reason for that kind of milage. I had a1970 chevy Camaro z28 &1\2 with a 350. Bored out to a 383ci. With a stroker lower. And I got better milage . And my 2000 f250 v10 got better milage . Anyone else have same issue ? Any fixes that can help me out plz

  15. I bit the bullet and ordered a new engine for our 2014 Escape, at 60,000 miles I just couldn’t bring my sell it for scrap. I’m making a list of items I need to order for engine swap out. Exhaust manifold gaskets and so on. Any one ever swapped out a 1.6 Ecoboost ? Looking for ideas of stuff I may have over looked.
  16. My wife has a 2017 Ford Escape titanium 2nd. 3 years ago she was in an accident. Damage to passenger front fender area (not sure if this changes anything but feel it should be noted). A month ago, she randomly had 2 errors come up (Cross traffic and blind spot right sensor fault). I linked photos. I brought it into a local shop I trust. They think it’s a sensor in the passenger rear that has failed. Over $1000 to replace. I then brought it into the local dealership and they think the passenger mirror was hit (small crack in it) recently. They think if mirror is replaced, it will turn off both sensors. I don’t want to go on a wild chase since both opinions are expensive. Does anyone have any info. / suggestions / thoughts? Thank you!
  17. Just purchased a 2016 Escape with SYNC 3, Software Version: 1.0 Build 15139 I have spent hours trying to update it so I can use apple car play with it.. I have spent hours on the phone with ford.. have tried 3 different usb’s 2.0, and (2) 3.0’s because Ford told me I needed a 3.0. When I couldnt get the update to install because of error messages like the installation has run out of space or does not work with this version, Bad installation file . One or more files could not be installed.. I have tried master resets resetting holding volume and power button down and another way to reset with help from ford locking doors and toggling key, disconnecting battery… Nothing has worked. Took it to Ford garage and they said they only booked me for an hour and couldnt get it to install easily so they charged me 70.00 and wanted me to come back and charge me for 2 hours to see if they can figure out the problem! I dont know if there is something else I can try or if I should just replace the APIM. Everything else in the radio works just cannot do any updates. I would appreciate any advice!!
  18. ALL GDI engines will eventually foul their intake valves. Especially if the engine is turbo-charged. The fouling occurs when blow-by is recycled into the intake air-stream via the PCV system. The oil vapors and condensate from the crank impinge on the intake manifold side of the valve and valve stem. When the engine is heat-soaked at operating temperature, the oil vapor and condensate hit the now HOT valve and valve-stem, and bake onto the surface. At the miles increase, the carbon build-up can get pretty extreme. Hard starting, rough idle, poor air-flow, restricted air-flow, pre-ignition - lousy mileage, rotten performance - the list goes on. To prevent this, install a catch-can between the PCV valve and the intake. There is a whole spectrum of available catch-cans out there. I bought one on Amazon.ca for my wife's 2020 Titanium with the 2.0 liter 4 cylinder. It was installed at 16,000 km (10,000 miles), and I'm surprised at how much the catch-can system actually collects. It's that much less that gets thrown on the hot intake valves. Is it a 100% solution? I don't know yet. The Chinese knock-off design I bought for $25 (and installed in the 2020 Escape) is an accurate copy of the Mishimoto system of baffles, which costs US$150. I know that's kind of shitty to do, but I couldn't afford the Mishimoto units - which are built in China anyway, sooo.... All I DO know, is that the intake valves on my 2012 F-150 with the 3.5 liter ecoboost are fouled. I put on two catch cans at about 180,000 km, so about 40,000 km ago. Did it prevent further build-up? I hope so. I need to remove the carbon buildup with a crushed walnut-shell blasting, but that's for Spring 2022. I'm going to replace the two Princess Auto air-dryer / "catch-cans" on my F150 with the same unit I used for the Escape.
  19. My wife bought a 2020 Escape titanium in March 2021. Dealer shuttle, low miles, blah, blah, blah. The single-horn was a tinny sounding squeak, which didn't get anyone's attention. Unacceptable. Stopped by the local wrecker and took a two-horn set from a 2014 F-150. I own a 2012 F-150, and the horn is loud, and has a nice two-tone sound. Modified the original Escape horn bracket to accommodate the second horn, and they have the same female connector which easily plugged into the existing power supply. Now when she presses the horn button, there is a commanding two-tone blast. The horns cost me $5, and an hours worth of time to modify the bracket and install the new set.

    License Plate Bolt Modification

    Sorry, forgot to mention it can be found at any building-supply store for cheap - like, 10 feet for $6.99, kind of thing. So, it's a cheap, easy fix.

    License Plate Bolt Modification

    You didn't state why you didn't like the two-bolt installation. I'm guessing it's the rattle / vibration from the unsecured side of the plate. So, one way to address that is to use peel-and-stick 1/4" weather-strip foam molding on the unsecured side of the plate. That way, the plate is held against the bracket and no more rattle.
  22. Seems like there are after-market front and rear strut-tower / shock-tower braces for most recent Ford vehicles, including older Escapes. I am searching for front and rear strut-tower braces for a 2020 Escape. Anyone with information, please advise.
  23. I have a 2009 Ford Escape. From what I've read online there is a known issue with the Ford Escape ignition lock module failing and needing to be replaced. That might be the problem I'm experiencing. My car won't start. I turn the key and can hear the sound of the engine trying to turn over, but it won't actually start. Can anyone tell me exactly what goes wrong in the module? Is it something to do with the removable key cylinder or is there some other issue? I want to understand this problem thoroughly before I take the car to a mechanic. This is the part I'm talking about. Thanks https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-989-019-Ignition-Housing-Mercury/dp/B07VPR5R4S/ref=sr_1_3?crid=U5DKBMCG59HR&keywords=2009+ford+escape+ignition+lock+module&qid=1640534445&replacementKeywords=ignition+lock+module&sprefix=2009+ford+escape+ignition+lock+module%2Caps%2C252&sr=8-3&vehicle=2009-54-659------------&vehicleName=2009+Ford+Escape
  24. Another thing I noticed is when I turn the key to the position for starting the car and then let go of it the key does not spring back. It stays in the start position and the engine continues trying to turn over even though I am no longer touching the key. I don't think that is supposed to happen. The key is supposed to spring back automatically. My guess is the the ignition switch module has gone bad. Apparently this is a know problem with 2009 Ford Escapes. Any opinions on this would be appreciated.
  25. Traction control and ESF can cause them to wear faster. Don't know where you are located but sliding around on snow/ice can do a number on these guys ..as well as any vehicle with these features. Had an Infinity G35 years ago and it would wear the rear brakes more as it was designed to keep the car more level on stops by doing so. You should not be wearing out that quickly. Have you scanned for codes?
  26. I have a 2009 Ford Escape. It started and ran fine until today. Today it will not start. I can crank the engine but it just won't turn over all the way. I checked for codes. There are none. I tried pushing in hard on the key as I turn it. Did not help. There is a half tank of gas. The battery does not appear to be the issue since the headlights are bright, all accessories work. If the problem is with the fuel pump, a relay, fuse or starter wouldn't there be a code thrown? What else can I check?
  27. The lights in my passenger taillight work 50%. Brake and turn signals are fine, but when you turn the lights on (manually and automatic) the won’t light up. All bulbs are fine so they changed out the BCM. Still not fixed . All wiring in the taillight works. They ran a diagnostic looking for shorts in the wire, but still unsure why the issue has not been resolved. Any help is appreciated.
  28. I do not like that the license plate only uses two bolts. Has anyone removed the rubber "nipples" from the bottom of the plate mount and replaced with nylon screw mounts? I am afraid that I will not be able to get them back in if I cannot find the proper nylon mounts. Thanks for any suggestions!
