About the Escape (Kuga)
The Ford Escape first made its debut in 2000. Since then, there have been a total of four generations to hit the various markets. The latest version was unveiled in 2020.
It is also sold as the Ford Kuga, mainly in the European market. However, these two models became unified under one badge as part of the “One Ford” plan that aims to have the same models sold globally rather than by region.
One of the most common issues that the Escape has faced is P0234. This code only affects models fitted with turbochargers, but that means that quite a few are susceptible. It means that there is too much boost coming from the turbo system.
This can often be caused by a faulty variable vane actuator as it cannot properly regulate the turbocharger pressure.
Fault code P0087 is another fairly commonly reported issue for both models. This code indicates that there is something causing low fuel pressure.
In some cases, this can be caused by a faulty fuel pressure sensor, causing the code to be logged without any real issues. This will mean that despite the code, there will not be any driveability or performance issues. It can also be caused by faulty fuel pumps or clogged fuel filters.
Fault code P2197 is another common issue for the Kuga/Escape. This code indicates that the first oxygen sensor in the second bank of the engine is remaining lean for too long. Of course, only models with V6 engines can suffer this code.
One of the most likely causes is a faulty O2 sensor, meaning it should be changed.
