Bad Threads and No-Start

Some 2010-2012 Ford Escape models equipped with a 2.5L engine, built on or before 9-15-2011, may exhibit an intermittent no-crank, no-start condition with no DTCs or PATS indicator flashing.

Remove the starter motor. Using a M10 x 1.5-6H tap, clean the threads of both starter motor bolt holes in the engine block to remove any excess material.

Clean the holes with compressed air.

Install the starter.
