My 2004 escape has a rough idle.cleaned aic. No effect. Other ideas are trs, egr, or the cat. I would love advice before I start throwing a whole new truck in to my truck! Thanks!

First, is the check engine light on ? If it is you would have it scanned for trouble codes to hopefully get some clues.
A rough idle is usually caused by cylinders not firing or not producing power. And the check engine light should be on if that is happening.
A faulty cat would only cause the engine to load up. The EGR could cause a rough idle due to a vac leak but again it should cause the warning light to come on.
You could have something going on in the gas tank. 2003 was the last year Ford used a fuel filter outside the gas tank, so something could have clogged up the injectors.

Check engine light is flashing and car runs rough.

Its either running too rich or too lean, either way have it seen to quickly or engine damage MAY result.

Ford Escape 3L 2002 Rough idle

generally, when the engine is washed, water gets trapped behind the spark unit and stays there, creating a shorting path for spark plug current. best to dis-mount the spark unit (follow plug wires back to source) and dry and clean it thoroughly.
