  1. Driver door randomly locks

    Has anybody run into their drive door locking by itself? I have noticed ours will randomly lock with the key still in the vehicle, but all of the other doors will still be unlocked. It desnt do it everytime, just when you least expect it. It has sat overnight with the key in it and has...
  2. Dashboard warning messages

    My parents have a 2020 explorer that had a similar issue. All the warning lights on, random messages, wouldn’t start. Finally started and the dealer said the battery was bad. They replaced it and it hasn’t done it since
  3. 2 BS and a trip

    I’d like to take it down to orcacoke island and drive on the beaches down there some. For me, the more remote the beach is the better. I wouldn’t give you a plug nickel for a week paid vacation at myrtle beach. I’d rather stay at home! Now if that week were in ocracoke village then we’d have...
  4. Difference between lane keeping and lane centering

    Ohhhh yeah we don’t have the lane centering aid. Just the lane keeping aid. My mistake 😂
  5. 2 BS and a trip

    I’m ready to take ours on a beach trip at OBX. the last time I was there, they were moving the lighthouse. That was quite the experience!
  6. Difference between lane keeping and lane centering

    I’m bad to steer into the apex of the curve so it’s a constant fight with the lane centering aid. the steering wheel is constantly vibrating on the narrow windy roads we have in the country around here lol. But I will admit the adaptive cc is nice. our sport doesn’t have it but we had an...
  7. Messing around with the intake

    K&N filters had a knack for dusting the turbo on the older diesels due to poor maintenance. I had one on a 7.3 that I had bought and it went in the garbage as soon as I could get a proper replacement. I’m just leery of filters you have to oil to have them filter properly. Not to mention...
  8. Accessing the panel above the rearview mirror

    I believe that would be the safest option. Find one that has power with key on and you’ll be good to go. I haven’t looked at the fuse panel on ours, so I don’t know what size the fuses are. I have used a fuse adapter that will plug into the place of a fuse, then it has a terminal on it to...
  9. Accessing the panel above the rearview mirror

    Truthfully there is nothing in there that will power your detector. You may find a 12v source going to the camera, but it will not be enough wattage, not to mention the radar detector could backfeed into a module and cause issues. Your best bet would be to get a dedicated koer power source...
  10. Loud exterior rattle at freeway speed

    It’s amazing what they’ll put on a vehicle to get a couple of tenths more mpgs out of it lol
  11. Loud exterior rattle at freeway speed

    I have experienced this in both the sport and a previous escape. I have narrowed it down to the covers that run the length of the vehicle on the driver and passenger side. they arent bolted per se, they just have kinda like a push nut on a ribbed stud. I think wind gets in there and flutters...
  12. Difference between lane keeping and lane centering

    I’ve found that the lane centering is ok for interstate type highways but on curvy country roads it sucks. Just another feature that I think is unneeded, as I feel the more features a car has to make you a “safer” driver, in reality makes you a worse driver as you tend to rely on the car to...
  13. extended uphill + downshift

    100% normal for a new car to burn off various chemicals/lubricants off the exhaust from manufacturing. Nothing gets the exhaust good and hot like a hard mountain pull. Btw, you should see the smoke that pours off a brand new motorcraft reman engine once it warms up. They coat the manifolds...
  14. Oil Separator for Ecoboost

    You’ve obviously never seen inside the intake system of pretty much any Diesel engine. Diesels have run crankcase breathers that dump before the turbo long before direct injected gasoline engines were even thought of. It’s nothing to get half a quart of oil/water mix that sits in the bottom of...
  15. G.O.A.T Mode Shifting points

    lol ours just turned 1000 miles and I have putted around in it during the break in period (im sure my wife hasn’t though). I’m gonna put it in sport and shower down on it and see what the little 3 banger is made of!
  16. G.O.A.T Mode Shifting points

    I have scoured the workshop manual for any mention of the GOAT mode selector and have come up with nothing. The only thing mentioned is the sport button in the center of the gear selector knob. It gives no indication of a set gear shift schedule with sport mode, only the PCM/TCM will determine...
  17. Greetings from NC

    Welcome! I’m from good ol N.C. too!
  18. Unofficial MPG thread for the 1.5L

    Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one who deals with this. I got tired of every time we got in the car to go somewhere the car was sucking fumes. So I’ll take it and go fill it up, as it will give me a chance to take a gander and see if anything is wrong with the car. So yeah my wife is...
  19. Oil Separator for Ecoboost

    if the engine has the dual fuel injectors, than a catch can is a waste of money. I’m really not sold on the catch can idea anyway. Yeah i can see it catches a lot of crap. But honestly running a premium synthetic oil (will have a much higher vapor point) and a good Italian tuneup every tank of...
  20. Oil Drain Plug not magnetic?

    I would imagine that since the engine is almost all aluminum other than the rotating mass, there is no need for a magnetic drain plug. I’ve worked on various Fords for years in a fleet and there hasn’t been a magnetic drain plug in quite some time. Well I take that back...the diesel pickups...
