SOURCE: After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,

Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

SOURCE: IAC control valve. Locato\ion 2002 ford escape

If it's not idling and has problems starting, it's probably the IAC motor. It's located on the throttle body. Follow the airfilter box all the way to the engine, where the rubber flex hose attaches. The throttle body should be the first aluminum part you come to. Attached to the side you'll find small little aluminum part with a small wire harness attached. Unplug it, take the IAC motor off and clean inside with carb cleaner. This should fix the problem with the idle.

SOURCE: How do I replace the valve cover gaskets for a

The valve covers installed on the 3.0L engine incorporate integral (built in) gaskets which should last the life of the vehicle. Replacement gaskets are available if required.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnect the ignition wires from the spark plugs, but leave them attached to their wire looms.
  2. Remove the ignition wire separators from the rocker arm cover attaching bolt studs with the wires attached, then lay the wires out of the way.
  3. If the left hand cover is being removed, remove the throttle body assembly, the PCV valve and fuel injector harness stand-offs. If the right hand cover is being removed, remove the engine harness connectors, fuel injector harness stand-offs and air cleaner closure hose from the oil fill adapter.
  4. Using caution, slide a sharp thin blade knife between the cylinder head gasket surface and the valve cover gasket at the four RTV junctions. CUT ONLY THE RTV SEALER AND AVOID CUTTING THE INTEGRAL GASKET.
  5. Remove the integral gasket from the valve cover gasket channel. Note bolt/stud fasteners locations before removing gasket for correct installation. Clean gasket channel and remove any traces of RTV sealant.

To install:
  1. Align fastener holes, lay new gasket onto channel and install by hand. Install gasket to each fastener, seat fastener against cover and at the same time roll gasket around fastener collar. If installed correctly all fasteners will be secured by gasket and not fall out.
  2. Install valve cover to the engine, lightly oil all bolts and stud threads. Apply a bead of RTV sealant at the cylinder head to intake manifold rail step (two places per rail).
  3. Place the valve cover on the cylinder head and install attaching bolts and studs. Tighten the attaching bolts to specifications.

  1. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal procedure. Connect the ignition wires to the spark plugs and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and run to normal operating temperature, then check for oil and vacuum leaks.

SOURCE: How do you replace the EGR on a 2002 ford escape?

To replace the the spark plugs on the V6, you'll need to remove the intake manifold. There is a coil on top of each plug (COP). Check this website for info:

The same link will also show the R&R of the EGR valve.

Something is leaking on the exhaust in the engine compartment and causing a burning smell. what could it be?


It could be the valve cover gasket, oil pan gasket or front main seal leaking oil on the exhaust. Best bet is to safely jack the vehicle and support with jack stands and get under and look to see if you can see where the oil is coming from. It is a fairly easy and quick job for all of the above.

Dark, almost black looks like oil, but not sure, under the vehcile, about a foot from the front passenger tire


It could be oil coming from the oil pan gasket, or rear valve cover gasket,not uncommon for the Escape or the passengerside cv boot or transmission seal, you would have identify exactly where its coming from under the Escape.

Oil leak around #1 spark plug of 2002 Ford Escape 3.0L V6 (spark plug is when on outside when removed - Oil leaks down engine onto exhaust). Anyone have an engine diagram so I can learn what lies in/near...


Sounds like valve cover gasket is leaking. It leaks down side of engine onto everything in it's path. Stop by a local parts store and have them take a peak, they'll be glad to help you out.

I have a 2002 Ford Escape my friend hooked up his computer to the car and it says coil pack on # 4 & 5 where is that located in the front or back? I can only see 3 the other 2 are hidden


I have a 2002 Escape V6.
Actually, I think 4 & 5 are in the front.
See this web site:
http://autorepair.about.com/library/firing_orders/bl-fo-1496.htm

I had #4 go bad. It was the coil. I had over 100,000 miles, so I replaced the plugs. To get the back coils and plugs (#1 #2 #3), you'll need to remove the Upper Intake. The gasket set is about $10.

Oil on front spark plugs


I just had this problem with my 2002 Ford explorer. I took it to the shop and it was the valve cover gasket. This was causing some slippage and white smoke from exhaust.
