2013 2.0 vibrations at idle. Sitting in traffic with unit in gear, I have vibration. When returned to neutral, engine smooth's out. This small vibe. drives me insane! Has anyone had this problem with their 2013 2.0?

Hi coldbear,

Have you talked to your dealer about this concern? I'd like to see how I can assist. Shoot me a private message with your VIN, mileage, dealer name/location, your best daytime phone number, and your full name.

I have a 2001 Ford Escape. I have a couple problems...1st I have a loud rattling in the front of my escape, sounds like it's coming from underneath the left side. I think it may be my struts or ball joints from other posts I've read. 2nd when it's cold my car likes to shake and not go fast. 3rd my sunroof stopped working like two years ago, think it might be the switch there's no noise or anything seeming like it's trying to work. Finally, and the most annoying, my roof leaks! Every time it rains the inside of my car gets wet! It comes through the top and all gathers at the center of my liner which is sagging. And it drips right on me on the front seat on the driver side. On the left side front side of my visor water just drips right on me! Any one know any solutions to these problems?!?!

Yep, mine does it too. Dealer says "it is normal..." It may just be a 4 cylinder thing, though... Interestingly, it has gotten worse as the mileage has increased...

Hi Tomt,

I'd like to look into this a bit more. Shoot me a private message with your VIN, mileage, dealer name/location, your best daytime phone number, and your full name.

I got a 2006 that leaks through like that too. although liner not sagging it is annoying if I clean the car or if it rains heavily

I have a 09' XLT V6 I'm having an issue with the vanity mirror lights. I had no idea until the girlfriend got in and complained that they didn't work. Is there a fuse for them that might be blown as it doesn't say anything in the owner's manual about the lights. The other interior lights work fine no problems.

We just did the DPFE sensor, as that is the more common culprit to the P0401 code ... that didn't do it ... pulled the egr and checked operation by applying vacuum ... the little piston/valve moved, but was slightly dirty ... cleaned with throttle body cleaner and q-tip, still no joy ... then realized that the 6" long vacuum line going to the egr was pretty crumbly ... replaced that hose, and it is all fine now!

Sometimes it is the simple things we overlook!

Hi Cathy...

First... Welcome to E-C!

Second... I'm going to move your question to a more appropriate location on the board under the Problems and Solutions section where it will get more views. I'll post a link here when I'm done.

Here is the link to the new post:

Random High Pitched 3-tone Beeping from Dashboard

Good luck getting it fixed :peace:

Rear Hatch actuator.. The hatch won't lock or unlock from the remote or power locks inside the vehicle. If It's locked, you have to peel off the top of the trim pannel and unlock it manualy. You can either order the assembaly from ford.. Or you can order an aftermatket actuator online.


I did not read through the entire thread but my 'quick fix' for this was to carefully take apart the lock actuator by prying on the seam of the housing for the mechanism and gaining access to the motor. Take the plastic end of the motor off to access the thermal resistor(little black square) and bypassing it with aluminum. Regrease and reassemble. This is the same fix used on Ford Mustang door lock actuators.

Hope it helps!
