My 2002 ford escape is losing power when going up an incline and idles real rough when at a stop

there can be many causes for lack of power many autoparts stores such as autozone can read codes stored in your vehicles memory which would help to narrow the possibilities. I expect it to have a P03xx code the xx being the cylinder that is misfiring which could possibly lead to a bad coil.

At 40-45mph rough shift check engine light comes on and lack of power

A rough shift can result from the vehicle running rough. Lack of power and a vehicle running rough can be caused by one of two very common problems. One is a leak in the air duct between the air filter and the throttle body. The other is a leak from rubber hoses connecting the intake to the PCV valve at the crankcase causing a vacuum leak. More serious problems such as a misfire from a bad coil pack or a blown head gasket can also cause the vehicle to lose power and run poorly but these are not as common.

2001 camaro driving along when suddenly had no acceleration/reduced engine power. Had to pull over. Turned car off, now car will turn over but will not start?

A sudden change usually suggests something quit working. One problem could be the fuel pump. A quick test is turn the ignition to the on position and see if you can hear the fuel pump running. If not make sure there are no fuses that blew. You can also check the fuel pressure using the pressure bleed on the fuel rail (assuming fuel injection). The bleed usually has a little cap on it and functions like a tire stem. If there is no pressure it also points to the fuel pump. If there is pressure gas will spray so have a rag and make sure the engine is cold.

The other would be an electrical issue. Lack of spark. 99% of the other issues would not cause the car to at least try to start or run real rough. Perhaps a fuse? I am not good at electrical issues.

Check engine light on for sometime; Response to throttle sluggish

If your catalytic converter is "below efficiency" or otherwise clogged, you will lose power as you drive and the vehicle heats. The more you drive the vehicle, the worse the problem will become. The exhaust can't escape properly through the catalytic converter, therefore your engine won't run properly. Your issues are related, and if you replace your catalytic converter they should go away.

2001 v6 escape rough idle when cold

To update my earlier repair on the 2001 6 cyl Escape: When cold, and when the ignition was turned over but no accelerator pressure given, the rough idle finally returned the P0303 code again when the check engine light came on indicating that it wasn't caused by the plugs or the coil. FYI, I had replaced the intake manifold gaskets during the original repair and just prior to that I had replaced the fuel filter which was very dirty (I cut it open to see).

The repair manual referred to fuel injectors as a possible problem. I have run three tanks of fuel using different injector cleaning products and am very pleased with the results. Cold starts are much smoother and I am unable to coax out the P0303 code or any other code.

My opinion, change the fuel filter, use a fuel injector cleaner for a couple of tanks, change the plugs if the problem still exists. The coils were not the problem on my vehicle.
