Having problems with your 2001 Ford Escape ?
No Engine Warning Light, but low engine power/shifting problems
\015 2001 v6 Ford Escape, Automatic Transmission. First symptom was when accelerating: RPM's would not exceed 3500 and car could not reach 40 mph. Wife described it as "not shifting."Due for regular oil change next week. Oil levels and color looked good. Transmission fluid looks old, but not bad and not burnt. Smells fine too. Engine starts fine. Tested 1st and 2nd and reverse. All normal. When in Drive it responded from a dead stop normally and with power... then hit a 3500 rpm barrier and could get nothing more out of her.Drove home slowly with no problems. Engine temp looked normal all the way. After getting home the engine smelled quite hot... rubbery smell. Could this be a timing belt slippage issue? The idle seems a little rougher now. Power seems to have decreased since coming home. Had a friend check it out and now from a dead start the engine gives very little power: 15-20 mph tops.\015
Well they dont have a timing belt they have a timing chain which is nice but i would take it to a mechanic with a ford scan tool to diagnose it its really hard to diagnose these newer vehicles over the net these days! it could be so many things from throttle position sensor to rev limiter issue!
