#3949 of 4133 cataLytic converters - 2005 Ford Escape V6
Apr 03, 2012 (7:14 pm)
This is my first use of this forum. My car (Ford Escape 2005, 3L) ran 5 miles per hour, and took to autoshop. The shop told me that the car needs to replace all three catalytic converters (two front ones and one rear one). My car has 110,000 miles. It cost $4200 (parts (3100) and labor(1100) ). Seems like an obscene price. They told me that they will not use after-market catalytic converters which are about ($1400 for 3 cat coverters) coz the engine light will come out again. my understanding from them is that after market cat converters doesn't meet the requirements of FORD manufacturers. p.s. the autoshop took cat converters out, the car is running fine.
My questions are: 1) Has anyone tried to install after market cat converters and having problems again? 2)Was the check engine light still on after installing after market catalytic converters?
Any suggestions, past experiences you can share would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same issue with my Mazda 2005...only the glass mirror is missing, the rest of the assembly is intact. Did you find a solution to this that you can share?

I had the exact same fix for my 03 ES/V6 with 70k. The Uniroyal Cross Country tires are terrific. The noise level is near 0 relative to the Contis.

#3954 of 4133 2002 Rough Idle, Engine light on
Sep 28, 2007 (5:53 am)
A couple days ago, our 2002 Escape started running a little rough (basically idling or slow speeds) and the check engine light has come on. Does anyone know a likely cause? We have an appointment Monday to get it looked at.

That happened to me with my PT Cruiser and it was the spark plugs and wires.

#3958 of 4133 2008 V6 Escape Stalls at speed
Oct 05, 2007 (7:15 pm)
We have a 2008 Escape V6, 8900 miles, 120 days old, that stalls at speed. Sometimes you can restart in Neutral. We have been to the dealer 5 times and they finally are admitting they can make the problem happen. The first 3 times we had it in for this problem they thought we were crazy. Last week they said "we know what it is, "the fuel pump". Unless they got a bad fuel pump, they did not fix the problem. Now they say we know what is but are not sure what to do. I have absolutely no confidence in the dealer. He seems to be nothing more than a parts changer. We are located in a small town not in a metro area and just are not trusting these people. For example, the auto dimming rear view mirror does not work. They told us we did not have that option, but the window sticker says we do. They say the mechanic said we don't since he could not find any wires connected to the mirror. Guess what? There are wires connected to the mirror and the mirror works intermittantly. What should I do to get the problems corrected? They swear that they are talking to the zone office. This is the dealer I bought the Escape.
