I have a 2014 Ford Escape. Is there anyway to make this cap less gas tank have a cap?
I have a 2014 Ford Escape. My car has become affectionately known as
the farting car! I was on the interstate driving it starts making a farting noise
that comes out of the gas take and when I slow down the car will cut off. If i
can pull over in time prior to it cutting off I can stick my finger in the gas
tank, doing this usually will make a sound like a balloon is deflating. Warm
air does escape out. I give it gas. and then the car begins to drive normally
however the check engine light is still on. I took the car to Ford and they
advised be that there is air getting into the gas tank and this would be a
$800.00 fix as this is not covered under my warranty. Is there anyway to
make this cap less gas tank have a cap? Does anyone have a solution
no I don't think so I have a 2010 ford f150 with one of those and it is kinda stupid why didn't the EPA get that
what engine does it have I found something on rockauto
I think its your vent that is clogged on the tank not letting air out of the tank...its a simple fix, bring the car to a local shop and asked them to check the vent, it should cost you maybe about $50.00...if that not it, leave the cap loose, you check engine light will come on..
Sorry for the delay my car is a 2013 Ford Escape SEL Ecoboost with a 2.0 Liter engine. I had to call Ford to get the correct information.
Capless tanks are great, got one on my F-150 and our Lincoln MKZ. I agree with Joemom, something is kinked or plugged in the vent and it needs attention. Do NOT drive with the cap open or the check engine light will come on and you could get debris in the fuel system. If your vehicle is less than 3 years old with under 36,000 miles the repair should be covered under warranty. It is possible it is covered under emissions warranty which is longer than 3 years.
I have a '13 Escape & mine is also making the farting noise. Did you ever find a solution?
