Was there ever a recall for Ford Escapes 2005 for engine dying when stopping at a stop sign?

Asked by Jul 17, 2015 at 10:55 PM about the 2005 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 2005 Ford Escape drives fine but now the engine dies each time I stop at a stop
sign/light and I keep it in drive with my foot on the brake.  It restarts fine but I must put in
neutral when stopping to prevent the engine from dying.  Anyone help???

Recalls are for safety issues only. Sounds like you have a drivability problem. Is the check engine light on? Sounds like you have a vacuum leak or the car needs some maintenance. More details please.

I wonder if it has a bad IAC (idle air control).
