Having problems with your 2005 Ford Escape ?
Ford Escape engine light on/blinking, faint knocking noise
\015 My 2005 Ford Escape has about 120,00 miles on it. Have never had any major problems, but the engine light just went on and then while I was driving on, the light started blinking. It seemed as though the car wasn't running smoothly at times. Stopped to get my mail and left the car running in the driveway, I could hear a faint knocking noise from under the hood as I walked by. The oil level is fine. I just restarted the car in the drive and do not hear the noise anymore, but light still went on and then started blinking again. My guess is noise will return when car has been driven again. Any ideas what this could be? Is it something that has to be looked at right away?\015
If your check engine light came on when the problem occurred, then you need to have the diagnostic codes read. I am cheap, so I would suggest going to an Advance or Auto Zone, they will read the codes and interpret them for you in hopes of selling you the part that will fix it. Good Luck. I hope you find this very helpful!
