Question DetailsAsked on 8/16/2012

What could be wrong that my 2011 Ford Escape feels like its going to die on me when slowing to or idling like at a stop sign or stop light?

I love my Escape but was smashed into almost head on by a wreckless TX they don't total a vehicle unless the repairs (over $10K) are more than what the vehicle is worth. The dealership took almost 3 months to replace parts etc. I've taken it back with these complaints but they say their mechanics drove it & didn't experience what I claim & since it didn't trigger some code that shows up on some computer diagnostics, they don't see a problem. This has been a nightmare. Any ideas? I've asked don't their mechanics know by drivers sharing similar complaints, why this is happening??? Type here...

I t could be several different possibilities, with all of the sensors on vehicles these days, but if i had to guess with the little amount of information you provided , i would have to say it could possibly be a vacuum line myabe cracked or an idle control valve gone bad. If you can provide some more information about the symptoms maybe i could come up with more, but since it was wrecked it might end up being a nightmare to find the problem. GOOD LUCK !!!
