Ford Escape 2005 engine will occasionaly die at stops

On occasion my Ford Escape 2005 will quit running when I am braking as I come to stop sign or traffic light. If I lift my foot off of the brake as soon as it starts to die it will keep running. However, if I keep my foot on the brake as I come to a stop it will die. The engine light does not come on when this happens. What could be causing the engine to die. The car runs smoothly.

SOURCE: engines idles rough and shuts off

  1. Answer: The engine noise, it is impossible for us to help you here without listening to the engine ourselves. As for your idling problem, check all the vacuum hoses and intake manifold gaskets as you might have a slight vacuum leak somewhere. In addition, check the idle speed control motor to make sure it is operating properly. If all checks out okay, scan the computer for fault codes. Scan the computer for fault codes. Also, check the oxygen sensor and coolant sensors and also Check your EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve it sounds like it is stuck open and needs replacing

SOURCE: service engine soon & brake light stays on

the service engine light is prob due to the oxygen sensor being damaged, not replace or you having the catalytic converter taken off---just messing with you. start at auto zone and have then do a free code read then go from there. you should troubleshoot the low fluid level switch for your brake fluid. unplug it and see if the light goes off and if it doesn't jump the two terminals on the harness. oh the car will have to be running. Let me know MrRodneyLong@gmail.com

SOURCE: engine stalls at stop lights and stop signs

sounds like the torque converter lock up might not be disengaging. You might also want to check for engine vacuum leaks. Does engine idle smoothly when in park or nuetral ? if the idle is good I would suspect torque converter problem.

SOURCE: Brake drum 2005 Escape

here is a diagram on how to remove your brake drum. please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya today.

Removal & Installation
CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

    CAUTION Use of a brake drum puller or a torch is not recommended. Brake drum distortion can result.

    NOTE If the brake drum is rusted to the axle shaft pilot diameter, tap the center of the brake drum between the wheel studs.
  3. Remove the brake drum.
  4. If equipped, remove the brake drum retaining clips.
  5. If the brake drums will not come off, follow these steps.
  6. Move the brake shoe adjusting lever off the brake adjuster screw.
  7. Loosen the brake shoe adjuster screw nut by adjusting the nut upward.
  8. Using the special tool, 134-R0191, measure the brake drum inside diameter.
  9. Install a new brake drum if the maximum inside diameter exceeds the specification shown on the outside of the brake drum.

To install:

WARNING Whenever a wheel is installed, always remove any corrosion, dirt or foreign material present on the mounting surfaces of the wheel or the surface of the wheel hub, brake drum or brake disc that contacts the wheel. Installing wheels without correct metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel to come off while the vehicle is in motion, causing loss of control. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

  1. Clean the wheel hub mounting surface and wheel pilot.
  2. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

SOURCE: Ford Escape engine light on/blinking, faint knocking noise

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!

My 1997 Ford F150 Truck,it shudders and dies unless I put it in park at a stop sign? we took it for analysis and they couldn't find the problem,


I have seen this symptom and it is caused by a leaking power brake vacuum booster, when you apply the brakes it creates a huge engine vacuum leak and this causes the engine to run lean and rough and die in some cases. Most likely the shop was looking for an engine issue when it was a brake related problem

I have a 2005 ford escape battery light came on ,is it true u have to take egine out ,to get to it??


Do an ECU drain first. ie disconnect battery for 30 secs. foot the brake and reattached battery thereafter. If battery check light appeared again, disconnect battery while engine is on. If engine dies, you have an alternator problem - replace it. If engine remains on, you have a voltage regulator problem.
If battery check light disappeared, ECU drain resets sensors thus fixed your problem.

Car quits running after about an hour.


Not the trans. Wouldn't have anything to do with engine performance or lack of it. First they should have ran it for a while and try to duplicate the problem. It sounds heat related or time running, to act up. The fuel pump could bind up mechanically. The diagnostic work and fuel sensor should not have been a place to stop off at. You have fuel volume and fuel pump amperage to check. You need a scan tool on it when it quits to get any data that may help out. It won't speculate on other issues without having the veh. You need to check all grounds,as in loose wires. Have to separate fuel from spark.

Brake lights out at separate times, but both bulbs okay.


i would double check the bulbs, i dont know much about escapes but most cars run a twin filament bulb, one is for taillights, the other for stoplights, if its not that it may be a brake sensor fault or somethings shorting out somewhere.
