That is way too much to have to do on a 2006 already

I would look at fuel trim at idle & on a road test,also cylinder
misfire counts in Mode #06 on the road

That requires a professional scan tool to look at data

Were the upstream O2 Sensors done at 100,000 miles?

Fuel Pressure --checked at motor?

I would have smoke tested the intake after the work that was done,
also smoke the Evap System from purge valve back & gas cap
forward,for leaks,press or vacuum.

Exhaust leaks-again smoke it

Check injectors with a scope & ignition cop coils
as well

You need the OEM Brand & part # spark plugs as well

Just attention to small details & you will find the issue

Egr System !!!

Sort of guessing at injectors sticking or dirty,the scope
trace will give you a hump when they stick

I would try Mobil 1 5W-20 as well

That is what my Lincoln LS has to use
Can't hurt during the winter

I don't know if you have VVT Actuators on the cams or not,
thus the thinner oil & add some Marvel Mystery Oil

I don't care for any additives, but that never hurt any vehicle
I have had for the last 45 years

Have you heard of Noid lights? You unplug the fuel injector and plug these in and they will light up if the injector is getting power. This might give you a better hint. There are also lights that go inbetween the spark plug and wire. Between these two items you may be able to narrow down the problem to a specific system. I believe that your car has a coil pack. Some of these engines have problems with the crank trigger. I believe it is located on the back side of the motor. If you decide to change it, be careful. I have heard of them breaking into two pieces and becoming a big problem.

SOURCE: Erratic Idle - When starts the idle is about 1100 RPM as it warms up, it goes to 700 - 400 RPM

Have you "reset" the computer on the car. When parts are replaced, the comp continues to run the vehicle on all the old settings which can drive you nuts because nothing you do will fix a problem. Usually, taking both battery cables off and waiting for 15 minutes will reset the computer. If this does not do it, then ask a dealer how to reset yours.

Vacuum leak. Just idles less rough in gear. Could be time for a tune up. Bad engine/transmission mounts will also cause more vibration.

Fuel filter is plugged and runs rough when its in gear but runs really well when in park or neutral can anyone help me


Its because its not clogged fully it allows enough fuel to reach engine to keep it idling. Replace fuel filter. Other wise bad fuel pump or timing is off

Rough idle


Mercury had a recall on 3.0 duratech motors in 2000 and 2001. If you get a fuel smell at startup then you might have a bad lower intake gasket, it could cause a miss if seal is cracked. Article No. 01-4-3 you can get it on AllData.

Also, check the PC rubber L piece that runs from the PVC valve to under the throttle control - it could be busted.

Make sure ignition wires are not cracked. If you haven't tuned it up in over 30-40K consider doing that.

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.
