01 Ford Escape Random Misfiring Running Rough

My 2001 Ford Escape has been randomly misfiring and running very rough lately. The truck sometimes smoothes out and runs fine and at other times, it runs very rough. It usually runs rough when I first start the vehicle. I am just seeking some assistance before I start pouring money in to the vehicle. Thanks

You'll have to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.
Could be injector problems, or spark problems.
Did you have the computer scanned for trouble codes ?

Your ignition coil is cracked. Replace it with a new OEM unit.

SOURCE: Ford f-150 running rough

Ok P0174 Is bank 2 (drivers side) is running lean
P0350 is an ignition coil primary circuit malfunction
P1127 indicates the HO2S heater(s) were not on during KOER Self-Test and testing of the HO2S did not occur.Engine not operating long enough prior to performing KOER Self-Test.
P1780 means that the OD switch on gear shifter was not cycled off then on during self test.
I would recommend re-running your self test and make sure to warm the engine up first and make sure to cycle the od switch on/off during the test and recheck the codes.
P0174 lean code could be caused by a miss-fire and P0350 could be caused by anything in the ignition(coil,plug,wires,etc.).
If the P0174 and P0350 repeat I would concentrate on the cylinders in bank 2. If you have a spark tester you could hook it to each of those plug wires individually and look for a weak spark. or try and unhook each wire one at a time and see if you can find a weak cylinder that way by the amount of rpm drop and replace the components on that cylinder and retest.

I have 01 trooper replaced gas cap now check engine light off, but I have a p0300 code will it pass smog.?.


Many states will not pass a vehicle with a check engine light.

The P03000 code you have has little to do with the gas cap, rather it is a random misfire code. read more about this code and possible fixes in the link below. Good luck!

misfires are more from faulty injectors / leaking injectors so check the codes as the misfire code will indicate the problem cylinder

2001 ford escape rough idle


since these are coil over plug, wires are out of the question, but not the coils. Although on this model, it would hard to test out since u need to remove the intake to get to the coils. But if it\'s been running like that a while, you should probably have a check engine with a code stating a cylinder misfire. If so, check if it\'s a specific cylinder, or a random cylinder misfire. If it\'s specific, you can swap 2 coils for one another and see if the misfire changes cylinder. if so, then you will know which coil is shot. If it\'s specific but changing the coils for one another doesnt change the cylinder misfiring, then the injectors are probably problematic. You can test that theory in the same way you did with the coils, but be sure to empty the pressure in the injection line before taking an injector out, or else you\'ll have a huge mess on your hands. If it\'s random misfire, then that will be a bit harder to pinpoint. You\'ll need to check for air leaks due to damaged/worn gaskets or vacuum hoses, check for fuel leaks from the injectors due to bad o-rings. If all else fails, just write back with what you\'ve tested and i\'ll try to help you find the problem.

What does P0300 mean - had some repairs done and this what I found now - car runs rough someone said that it is randomly misfiring


This indicates a random misfire. More than one cylinder is misfiring. Replace the spark plugs and plug wires.

2005 chevy silverado v8, some hesitation, rough idling, ses light on and sometimes flashes. black smoke when reving the engine.


Black smoke could mean it is running rich, have a scan done, it is probably an engine misfire code and it will tell you which cylinder is misfiring. the last digit is the cylinder, unless it says random missfire, It may be time for a good tune up and don't forget the fuel injection system, Clean out the intake and do an induction cleaning on the injectors.

Is this a 5.7? They are notorious for intake manifold gasket leaks. When mine did it, the diagnostics blamed it on an ignition misfire also! Replaced the gaskets and it runs smooth!
