Question about 2005 Ford Escape
Our 2005 Ford Escape was running very rough, really bad gas mileage, reduced power. We changed all spark plugs and ignition coils, but the problem persists. The only code it has thrown is for the ignition coils, but the engine light is still on and it is now running worse. Help!

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.

Coils are a commmon issue with these fords. I would advise to have the plugs changed at the same time if they are due (around 100 k).

First I would suggest you try to get a print out from the dealer for the computer test they did on the car. The computer test should have given them a very good idea of what was wrong before they started fixing anything. Also what they fixed should be under warrantee. If you are still having the same problem, it should have been something they addressed in the beginning.
