I had the same problem on hot days,they changed the Idle control valve mounted on top of the engine . The problem has gone away.

I am having the same issue with mine. Been looking into it for quite some time and now they say the torque converter.

Finally after 3 stalls in the past week which coincided with temperature nearing 90, the check engine light came on. I took it to the Ford Dealership and said please check the Idle Air Control Valve as recommended by many members here as well as a mechanic at my job. Ford called us back and said that was the problem! Got the Escape back and hoping for a stall-less future!!!!

Wondering if you ever found the problem. This is hapening to me right now and your the first person that I have found with like issues. I know from your post this was a while ago. Any insight would be nice.

After the iac control valve was replaced I still had the problem. I had the fuel pump replaced, expensive, that seems to have resolved the problem. Car is running good now. Good luck!

Hi, I'm going to look at a 2003 Escape with 3.0L engine and 165K miles that reportedly has a bad alternator. Most alternator change-outs for me on other vehicles have been relatively easy repair jobs. Why is this one so difficult?
Thanks for your help--Dennis

Because it's underneath the engine and you have to remove the wheel and strut to get to it...

My 2001 3.0L V6 Ford Escape Shake while in idle and while accelerating at about 45 - 55 mph. Sometimes I can speed up or slow down and it would stop. I only have this car to drive to college can you please help me ?

#4094 of 4149 2002 Escape Won't Start
Aug 14, 2012 (7:22 am)
Frequently fails to start. Engine cranks but acts overchoked or vapor locked. IAC valve replaced twice, once because new part defective. Changed to different gas. No luck. Fuel pump OK. Only consistent fix is to remove gas cap, poke the vapor shutter to let in air, then start car.
