what to check this time?
ok, this is the 2001 Ford Escape that we put a t-stat in a few weeks ago. he told me that he also added something called "liquid glass." He say it has been running fine since then, but today when he was almost at work it started running rough. He has to go up a small hill, and he said it strained so hard he wondered if it was going to make it. When he got to work, it stalled out like it was hot, but the gauge and light still say it wasn't. Additionally, he said it didn't feel overheated like it did last week. It was hot because he was driving it but not hot enough to have overheated. Now when he starts it, when it's at a low idle it makes a weird tapping, almost like a chirping noise. It run badly, and when it goes down to idle the oil light flickers. At higher revs, the oil light stays off.
