My last answer was a possible fuel injector.
Have you checked base fuel pressure and the injectors yet ?

SOURCE: i just changed spark plugs in my 2002 ford escape

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.

Dead miss in cylinder 2

I would want to know if you have normal compression on all 6 cylinders, and if the other 5 are firing correctly.
Usually when you pull a wire and the engine smooths out, you have another cylinder miss going on at the same time.
How many trouble codes do you have in the computer ?

Our 2000 Windstar is missing. We changed all the plugs with new ones changed the coil wires and computer.its still missing.can you help me out?

try a wet/dry compression test. if one or more of the cylinders are low by 30lbs or more and remains so after the wet test, then the valves are likely bent or burnt on that cylinder

The engin lamp is lighting

most likely plugs or wires (Do both at the same time best bet) Your engine has a certain load a certain speeds, if your ignition system (plugs + wires) arent up to snuff, they will misfire at certain speeds only. I would recomend it 1st, other than that there are a couple of things that do it, but that is most likely. Shop around for ignition parts dilligently, its a very cutthroat market and prices vary greatly, make sure you only buy platinum plugs or better.
