I have a 2014 ford escape 1.6l that went into limp mode for engine Temp sensor. Normal temp on the gauge. I shut the car off and started it back up. Engine light on and drove it home. It drove good. used my code reader and got the p1299. Brought the car to a shop and they could not find anything wrong. They said it would need to happen more frequent for troubleshooting which I understand. The problem is that when you shut it off and restart it the fault goes away. My teenage daughter drives this car and it is not safe for her if it goes into limp mode. It just happed to her and luckily she was not on a busy road/interstate. I am not one to shotgun parts, but I am leaning towards replacing the engine temp sensor. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I do not feel this car is safe for her to drive.
