When my 2002 Ford...

When my 2002 Ford Escape(V-6) gets to operating temp, check oil light

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Check oil light comes on, and vehicle dies.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '02 Ford?

Escape V-6 3.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escape yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had an oil change, I'm not doing it myself. Since the oil change, I've had this problem. I went to a local repair shop, and they found nothing wrong-yet my truck still does the same thing, after driving 5 miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No - please help!

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

D​oes it restart right away? Do you hear any engine noises such as ticking or knocking? Thanks.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It will not restart until about a 10 min. wait. The engine has no noise or knocking

During no start period does engine turn over but not start or not even turn over?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Turns over but will not start

Some testing is going to need to be done here to figure things out. Based on symptoms alone it sounds like a possible fuel pump but the fact oil light is coming on you should start by having a engine oil pressure test done. If oil pressure is actually low then you may have a internal engine problem or worn oil pump. If oil pressure is good then I'd move onto replacing oil pressure sensor. After that you will want to check for spark, fuel, and compression during no start and depending on which one you are missing go from there. There isn't enough information at this time to say exactly what problem is but fact it still turns over and you do not hear noises means the engine itself is probably still good. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have questions or run into questions, you can reply to this answer at any time without additional fees. Thanks.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
