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 ?

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.
#4096 of 4149 2003 ford escape radio shut off while driving now car wont start
Aug 18, 2012 (3:27 pm)
I was driving and the radio shut off , It felt like the ac kicked in harder so i shut the ac off and radio came back on , Turned ac on radio shut off. So I parked , Before I shut off the vehicle the ac was barely blowing radio would not turn on. So I shut it off, When I try to start at all I get is a constant clicking, as if the battery was dead. But I have only had this escape 3 days, I have had no problems at all, this just all the sudden happened.

Mechanic disconnected evaporative emissions canister. Apparently valve is stuck. Car starts and runs just fine now, but CHECK ENGINE light is always on. This is to be expected. The canister will have to be repaired/replaced

Car stalls after canister disconnected. Back to the same old same old. Remove gas cap, car starts. Drive with gas cap dangling in the breeze. What next?
