After eight years, if the battery hasn't been replaced already, then it may be just that. Otherwise the only thing left to check is the battery cables themselves. Corrosion at the battery terminals is obvious but the alternator lead connection to the battery terminal might need to be verified electricaly. Also check the negative battery cable at the block and chassis. Basic charging system test is: Voltage at the positive terminal with ignition and all accessories off should be at least 12.6 volts. If below 12.6 even after 2 hour charge, replace the battery. With engine running at 1500 rpm, between 14.1.and 14.7 volts. With the accessories turned on one at a time, the charging voltage should drop and then come back up and not drop below 14.1 volts. If it does, the regulator is deffective. The voltage should change in response to loads and engine speed. Good luck, Techjoel

I would replace the spark plug cable as well. It is quite easy the damage old plug wires when removing them to change the spark plugs. A good way to check this is to pull off a spark plug wire (one at a time), then start your car. If it became worse then move to the next wire until you find one that is causing the miss. Make sure you shut the vehicle off before touching the wires. Then switch it out with one of the other wires. Make sure you change it at the coil as well. Now recheck for the miss. If it moved then it's the wire. If not the you might need to recheck that plug gap and also inspect the inside of the distributor cap. You may need to replace that as well.
Plugs, Wires, Cap and Rotor should really all be replaced at the same time.

I just changed the plugs (and one COP coil) on my 2002 Escape V6. Yes, you have to remove the upper intake to get to the 3 plugs on the rear bank. It's not very difficult. The o-ring -like gasket set is about $10 from Autozone.

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.
