Talking Engine Misfire, PCM failure 2005 Escape

For those of you trying to figure out why your engine is misfiring. Engine running extremely poor!

The 2005 ford Escape 3.0 has problems from a Vendor. The Engine control module (called PCM) is located above the engine in the firewall (3 bunches of wires) has a HUGE failure rate. Usually happens over 50,000 miles.

Their is a TSB on this problem and Ford is replacing them for free. Conditions are it must be under 80,000 miles and not over 8 years from date sold.

If you have this issue call your ford dealer with your Vin number! Have him check the VIN in the computer. He will tell you if your covered.
Some dealers dont know this so you have to ASK!

Ford will replace all the coils (COP=Coil on plug) and replace and install the new software in the NEW PCM. Do not try to fix this yourself if your covered.

They will reprogram 2 keys when they do this because their is a chip in the keys to let the engine run.

I found out the hard way. Went to first dealer who didnt know this. He didnt have a clue what was wrong because he never ran the VIN. I Did research on line and went to a 2nd dealer. He ran my VIN # and repaired it for FREE. Parts had to come from Vendor and took several Days!

I hope this helps some owners out there.

My 2003 ford escape (i have 2-3.0 Limiteds) has 165,000 with only minor issues and runs strong!

Ford will be changing the Escape and using a Australian platform called the Conga (not sure of spelling). Masda Tribute will be discontinued soon. Mariner is all gone with the Mercury name put to sleep.

The 2012 Escape will merge with the European Kuga and both will be built off the latest Focus platform. Not sure about the Australian connection unless the Kuga is already being sold there. I'm pretty certain you can kiss the V6 option good-bye.

Maybe not as this article came from the recent Detroit Auto Show with a reveal: Ford Vertrek Concept but does a 1.6L EcoBoost replace a 3.0L???

Probably because there weren't any open recalls in OASIS for your VIN. You can check it yourself at one of Ford's official websites.

I haven't a clue what the original poster from last year was referring to, but, from his description, it would not be a recall. TSBs don't change warranty terms. I have to conclude his reporting is either confused.

Interesting, I don't mean to argue but his isn't the only thread mentioning it. I'll do more research and get back here with a more official answer

TSB 10-18-10 might be what he was talking about, but he's confused about extra warranty coverage.
