Hi guys. Been a while.
My brother in-law just picked up a used ford escape against my suggestions. Not a ford mind you, just this one. Anyhow, he bought it. I didn't see it so I am not even sure what size engine it has. But he called me miles away and says this thing hasn't got the fire power to get out of its own way. In particular going up (small) hills.

No CEL, no nothing, just doggin' it.

I am fixing to have a look at it tonight, but, I thought others may have a clue as to what may make this turd do what it is doing. Any clues are appreciated. Thanks.

Now that I've read this, (sorry for the late reply !), what you're describing sounds like a fuel pump issue.  Not sure though .  .  .
