So I was gifted a 2004 Escape xlt. Being ancient, and it being as powerful as a wet fart, I drove it gently. Then one morning it fires up with an indicative momentary rattle making me think I should check the oil after work. But no, two miles later it starts banging like a heavy metal band, looses power, dies, then the oil light came on!! Super handy that!!! So I put it up for spares or repair with no takers. So now I’m considering throwing money I don’t have into a potential pit. Options being strip it and replace the parts, drop the engine into a lake and get another, drop kick the engine into the lake and fit a beast engine and box since the gearing leaves a lot to be desired or buy some steaks, set it alight and bbq the steaks. What would you do and what beastly engines would drop in instead of the standard 3 litre?
