IDS wont marry the clusters though. Only way I've ever seen those done was to send the cluster and ECU directly to Ford.

Yes it will. It is called a parameter reset and it's in the PATS menu behind the 10 minute security access. How do you think we do this when a PATS involved module has to be replaced in the field?

On vehicles built after 2010 it doesn't work anymore because most modules like the pcm, I and BCM are VIN locked once they are programmed the first time.

I have no idea about the guage cluster, it looks to be original but could of been changed. I do think im stepping away from this, its a good parts car but I think for what it would take to get it on the road again I could get a running vehicle I dont have to mess with. I still have my ‘97 ranger 3.0- too bad it wouldnt work in that chassis. One of the weirdest things about the escape V6 is that something is ran off the intake camshaft on the front side of the engine. I think it may be the water pump. I looked under the hood of a 2010 escape yesterday and the engine is simular but is using the exhaust cam to run something. And the 2010 is a 6 speed auto, crazy. Its $3500, I might try it out. Im only into the ‘06 $270 at this point, going to list it for $500 and see if anyone wants it. My g/f likes the step bars and the 2010 doesnt have them, may see if I can get those off and free up that back brake so it can roll better.

I forgot to post this picture, last week I paid for one of those vehicle history things, was only 10$, This came from michigan originally, has changed hands alot. who knows when it last ran. noticed when I was underneath yesterday that fuel filter looks original. Such a easy thing to change and no one ever bothered. Ive seen that alot though, my 94 ranger had a original fuel filter up to about 2 years ago when I got it.

pulled the rear tires to see about the parking brake that is hanging up on drivers side. Well the peice that the cable hooks on to on the passenger side is missing, I sprayed wd-40 into where the missing part was and also on to the rusty rotor. went to turn it and noticed something weird. had a jack handle between the studs to turn axle with, other rear tire was still on the ground. well it took some effort but could turn axle, driveshaft wasnt turning though, should of been as other tire was on ground. Took apart other side and was able to use a hammer and move the lever/cable back. Between that and plenty of wd-40 it should be easier to push out of the garage than it was to push in there.

I would probably just call a scrapper and have that thing gone from my vision with the quickness...

Lick your wounds... and carry on like it just never happened... then deny it if it ever comes up again.

The transverse mount 3.0s in the Escapes run the water pump off the cams, there wasn't enough space to get them up front. At least the aren't inside the timing cover like a 3.5L.

I don't think those step bars will fit a 2nd gen Escape. On the 2nd gens the rocker trim comes off and the running boards mount in their place. I don't think the mounting points for the 1st gen style step bars exist on a gen 2.

I know you could do the Pat's modules with ids, but I thought you had to send the HEC clusters to ford for them to mileage match them because of all their fear of odometer fraud. Could have sworn you were the one that actually first mentioned this to me.

An IDS can't change an odometer reading (ForScan can). It CAN re-pair the PATS system, up until about 2010. That's when they started VIN locking modules, which is another step for odometer fraud prevention.

well the step bars are staying on, even with 6-point sockets the bolt heads wanted to round off due to rust. I even tried one of my 15” jeep steel rims, figured if they would clear the calipers I could put them on and sell the alloy rims seperate-nope! Oh well, the rears were partially welded with corrosion to the rotors, fronts might have been worse. listed it already, see what happens, can call for pickup anytime so not in a huge hurry to move it. not out much $ either, could of been worse. The more embarrassing loss was over 15 years ago, bought a used pontiac montana. took a loss on it but wound up with my ‘93 ranger in the end. Heres a few more pictures I took for the ad. It does push better now.

Sad, that is a really nice looking Escape. Hope you can recoup your money

Yeah, I know. I really hoped it was saveable (for a reasonable amount). Hopefully I can break even, was 200 for the vehicle, 70 for the rollback trip from town to the house and 25 (roughly) for the title/tax. so just under 300. Im asking 500 , so far ive had about 40 veiws on the ad. I am considering moving it beside the garage. Little point in keeping it under roof and having a running vehicle left out in the weather.

well, down the road it goes! Didnt quite break even but at least its out of the from the front yard.
Yesterday I picked this up. At least this one runs, could of used the rims off the ‘06 as winter wheels (I know, like I need another set of tires, last saturday I put 2 winter tires on junkyard rims for the hhr) This one is a 2011. 6 speed auto, V6 awd. The g/f likes it so much that I think the hhr will turn in to the “backup” vehicle and she will claim the new escape. I’ll keep driving my ranger as my daily driver.
