This might sound crazy but it works with these Escapes most of the time. Go buy a can of Seafoam from your part store. With the engine off, disconnect the brake booster vacuum line and place it in the can of sea foam. Start your engine and keep your foot on the gas pedal and keep the RPM's around 2k.The vehicle is going to smoke like crazy for 10 minutes or so, when the smoke clears up for the most part, go drive it for a couple of miles and see if that helps. It cleans out the carbon buildup from you intake and sensors and takes care of that code you getting most of the time. OR, you purge canister needs to be replaced...

I replaced the coil pack on my friends wind star when they had a mis. If you take the sparkplug wires loose and just set them on the plugs loose it will be easy to remove them with the engine running. Useing plastic plyers or some kind of insulated grabers, one by one take the wire away from the plug/or coil and see if it makes a difference.Take it away then put it back then go to the next one.If it runs the same when the wire is off then you probably will not hear a spark at that wire. The coils do go bad on alot of newer cars.
I hope this info helps you.

Testimonial: "thanx for the info i'll try that. thanx again."
you probably have blocked passages in the intake manifold. remove the egr and check the port for a clog. you can scrape most of the carbon out with a pick or screw driver and then use some spray carbon cleaner in there. also check the metal exhaust line to the egr

Testimonial: "i looked at what was discribed and that wasnt it.Good thought thouh"
P0401 shows an Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient. Without a good scan-tool you will be playing the "Parts Changing Game". Insufficient flow can be the result of a vacuum leak, bad MAP sensor, an exhaust leak, faulty EBP sensor, carbon build-up, and so on. I wish I could say more but with all the electronics it is more complicated then earlier cars.
