2002 Escape Stalling
Just recently my wife came out of work and went to start her escape, the escape started but as soon as she took her foot off the accelerator it shut down. She started it again and it kept doing the same thing. Someone checked all the fluids they where fine, plenty of fuel. I told her to open and close gas cap, that was fine, she did notice that a lot of pressure was released when she openned the cap, (outside temp appr. 80 deg. ). She then tried again same thing , no problem starting but kept shutting down when she took foot of accelerator. She eventually drove escape home, with one foot on gas and one foot on brake, She made it home and kept it running if she applied enough gas to keep it running and enough brake to stop it at the same time. Her commute home is about 20 min. thru city traffic, and when she arrived home the problem stopped, she said it may have stopped a little sooner than home, but she didn't want to stop to see. While driving home there were no alarms or warning lights on at all, everything seemed normal.
Any suggestions on what this might be, first time this has ever happenned. Approx 110,000 mi., 6 cyl.
