Re: Escape '03 STALLS when shifting into 2nd Gear
Diego - I just want to make sure that you've covered the basics here first. The basics include a standard tune up, transmission service, coolant flush and cleaning ot replacing the idle air controller (IAC) on/around the throttle body. The IAC and TPS (if equipped) are similar to O2 sensors that will require replacement every 100K or so for best performance.
Another possibility is that your cat converter might be clogged, or on it's way to completely clogging up in which case it will make the vehicle hesitant once the unit heats up, hence after your long drive it starts giving you problems. I'd check into it.
