Knocking, acceleration issue, stalling on stop.

Asked by Jun 28, 2016 at 12:15 AM about the 2007 Ford Escape Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 Ford Escape Limited. It went 7,000 miles past oil change (oil light came on then engine light). it is knocking and stalled at a light today. The knocking and rattle in the engine is LOUD. With it floored it will rev up to 4rpms, but won't accelerate and while driving it holds at 2rpms but won't go over 40 mph, slower on hills and stalls at stop. please help!

Sounds like it has a ruined engine, rods are most likely knocking, if you keep driving it the engine will self detonate and you will be sitting along the side of the road with engine parts strewn about the road behind you. 10000 miles at least on the engine oil, that's just too long. A simple oil change at regular intervals could have saved you roughly about 4000 bucks parts and labor. Gentlemen Taps please.

Thank you for the information. This is the first time I have let it go past oil change simply because I couldn't afford the $30 bucks to have it done. Unfortunately, it looks like $30 bucks could have saved me a lot more. :(
