Question about Ford Escape
2005 Ford Escape with 140k. The car stalled out on the highway a few months ago. I ended up having to replace all the spark plugs, coils, and PCM. Since replacing, the car idles rough while in drive and after driving at highway speeds (70 - 75 mph) for two hours it starts to cut out again. I let off the gas and reduce speed for 10-15 min it will stop and I can finish our drive. It does not throw any engine codes. I'm thinking possibly intake gaskets, bad vacuum hose, fuel injectors. Any ideas?
It could be something as simple as a vacuum line,but sounds fuel related. Possible pump.get a fuel pressure reading done and if pressure doesn't hold.....suspect fuel pump

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.

Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.
