I am now the proud owner of a 2002 ford escape, but like always with any used car, there are some issues i'd like to get resolved.
#1, is the check engine light. I had it scanned, said EGR valve. If I just replace the valve, since it's a $30 part, will it fix the problem, or is it possible something else could be throwing the code ? (P1014 i think it was, or p1041)
#2, the moonroof doesn't seem to seal all the way. When I push the button to close it, it closes, but if you look through the top, the passenger side seems to not sit correctly, and there's a gap. took it through the carwash and got soaked, hahahaha! It looks like the two torx screws on the passenger side slide rail are loose. Does anybody have a picture of how the moonroof sits with it fully closed, so I can line it back up and tighten the screws?
Finally, on another question related to the EGR valve, once I replace that, is it possible that it will stop it from making funny noises once in a while after driving it for a while? It sounds like it's idling rough, but it doesn't have the feel of rough idle, just the sound.
EDIT: I also want to note, that when it's making the noise, if I shift out of drive into any other gear (park, neutral, or reverse), the noise goes away. I don't think it's the transmission as it shifts and operates fine even during the noise.
Please get back to me, and once I get her detailed up completely, i'll get some pictures up!
