as i was leaving for my july 4 weekend i had a major malfunction of the ole escape.

temp in jersey was in the mid 80's thursday
first i drove 45 miles in moderate traffic on a highway home from work with the a/c on low

got a full tank of gas

then escape than sat for about an hour maybe 2

then i drove about 7 miles in town loaded for the weekend a/c was on full blast

i stopped to p u stuff at the inlaws the escape was parked and turned off with the a/c still in the on postion for approx 10 minutes

when we got back in a started it stalled

it keep stalling every time i came to a stop and took it out of gear...

it then was difficult to restart
in total it stalled about 10 times limping back 7 miles home to switch cars.

when i returned home from the weekend i started and drove it a bit and now it seems to have no issues

i haven't been using it though b/c i am afraid of getting stuck

anyone with ideas? :confused:

How many miles do you have? I'd guess that you have a clogged catalytic converter.

Can you pull the computer codes?

i have 70K. 40k of that is all highway mileage that i put on.....i have not been able to replicate the issue.....as precaution i did the following

1. new air filter
2. cleaned MAF
3 Cleaned throttle body slightly
tested pcv valve..has vaccume

today i did the exact same things i did on thursday and it worked fine....i guessing it was a fluke and i will keep my eye on it....
