#4103 of 4133 Problem restarting my after driving
Sep 28, 2012 (11:42 am)
I have a 2003 Ford Escape Limited 4 cylinder. I only have 43,272 miles. The car has been very good to me, until this summer. I would start my, car drive to my destination (could be a long drive or just to the supermarket), park and then return to restart my car and it would not start. I would have to wait about 1/2 hour give or take and then it would start. It began happening all the time. I brought it to Ford and they had the vehicle there for 4 days, they finally said it was the Fuel Relay Switch that needed to be replaced. Got the car back and all seemed fine until I went on a road trip (2 1/2 hour drive). Going to my destination, I did not encounter any problems, it was on my return to home that I encountered problems, stopped at a rest stop and went in to get a bite to eat came out to start my car and it just would not start. This time it took 2 hours before the car would start, got home and pulled into driveway turned off engine and tried to start and it did the same thing. Next morning the car started.
Went back to Ford, they have had my car now for 4 days, and finally after I called for an update, the Service Manager is now telling me it is the Fuel Pump and it needs to be replaced. Expensive and considering that I only have 43,000 miles (most of it highway miles) I cannot believe it is the fuel pump. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Most likely is the fuel pump. Had mine replaced in May and haven't had any trouble since. Good luck.

Yep. Fuel pump. Consider the $900 well spent if it gets you going again. It was the most expensive fuel pump I have ever purchased

We had something similar to this happening with our 2011. Ended up having the throttle body replaced last week and it is ok now. It was going to now power, like an idle, while driving, but all functions, i.e. radio, a/c, etc. still working. Husband would coast over to side of road and restart car and it would be fine.

Did the accident occur after the throttle cable recall repairs?

Never received the notice, verified with ford my car was under recall. Looking for expert advice on pursuing recovering of damages. I thought the insurance company would help out, covering cost of car, no other damages.
