2009 Escape XLT V6 - Check engine light

Hey Everyone, My name is Helena, I work for AutoGuide and actually sit right beside Cayne (the site admin)

I Was looking for some help with my Escape.

After about 6-8months of owning the car i noticed that it had an issue with acceleration, as in sometimes it would hold back power before moving into gear.

I brought this up with my dealership, and was told that is was from the traction control being on, and that the mechanic could not re-create the issue. I left it at that and continued to drive the car.

The car is not used very often and is mainly driven log distances on the highway as apposed to city driving.

Last month my check engine light came on, I had one of the guys here read my error codes and clear the light.

The code was:
Code: p 112
Code: p 20100

Cause: Mass or volume airflow circuit

The light did not come back on, and i really did not drive the car much from then to last night, when it came on again. I have noticed a few things since seeing the light. (the first time)
1. the car is not having a god time changing gears, it lags and power drops REALLY quickly after speeding up.
2. My gas is getting EATEN!

I am going to take it in next week.
Reading up on this type of issue it seems as tho Ford is Quick to dismiss these issues. I don't want to get told it is one thing when it is another. So as much info as you can share would be GREAT!!!!

Thank you all for help!

Helena

If it's stil under warranty, I'd have the dealer look at it again. make sure the light isn't reset before you go. How many miles are on it? Sometimes a dirty MAF will cuase running problems and sometimes they need to be replaced. That can cause poor mileage, poor shifting and other problems.

Re: 2009 Escape XLT V6 - Check engine light

It has about 43,000 on it.

I bought it "slightly" used. It was the dealer model and had about 8000 on it when i bought it. But i got it 2009.

I take it for it's regular maintenance like clockwork every 6 months. It was just taken in in November.

As Bert suggests , let them worry about fixing it .It has been maintained as per manufacturers schedule and is still under warranty , down to them .

Re: 2009 Escape XLT V6 - Check engine light

Code P0112 Indicated Intake Are Temperature signal is less that the self test minimum.

Possible causes: Grounded Circuit in the Harness, Damaged sensor or Incorrect harness connection.

p 20100 doesn't seem to be a valid code.
