Customer Question
Just replaced the engine...

Just replaced the engine in a 2014 escape. Starts up fine, but almost immediately goes into limp mode with codes p1299 and p0012. Runs fine at higher rpm, but throws a code at idle. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?

86023 miles 1.6 liter turbo

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

Replaced cylinder head temp sensor. I work in a small shop, doing this for a customer

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

Nothing I can think of right now

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
