SOURCE: headlight went out in 2003 ford escape i have

you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

SOURCE: Ford Escape 2003. Engine suddenly overheat.

Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.

If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.

If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Good luck.

I did not drive my 2003 Escape for two months. It worked fine this morning. Then driving home to night it was almost stalling at the stop signs. Driving along the Highway it had no power at was very jerky...


Get the code, any time you get a MIL Lamp on dash

Jerky--could be EGR Valve

Need the vehicle to diagnose issues,can not guess

Ignition coils a big ford problem, for over 14 years running.
They like to sell them that way

2003 ford escape no start


The solution for my problem was the crank position sensor. The only way we were able to find the problem is the escape finally would not crank and I was able to have the diagostic done at the time it would not crank and then the mechanic was able to tell the crank sensor was faulty. Hope this can help someone else, so far the escape has been running great and never had any other issue with it.
