Is Ford EcoBoost 2.0 not working?
Since Ford 2.0 EcoBoost engine uses direct injection, it has low pressure and high-pressure fuel pumps. If the fuel filter in the gas tank clogs, it leads to the low-pressure pump overworking as it tries to send enough fuel to its high-pressure counterpart. Eventually, it will fail.
Some reviewers say this engine feels a little underpowered, but most think it moves the Escape well, and it delivers surprisingly good acceleration. It also has a cylinder-deactivation feature, which shuts down one of the cylinders in order to improve fuel economy while cruising.
As with all mainstream engines, EcoBoost engines have been designed to last. They should easily clock 80,000-100,000 miles with little need for repair, so long as the vehicle is regularly and properly serviced.
