Question about 2004 Ford Escape
Check to make sure you have enough transmission oil in it. Pull out the dipstick marked Tranny, and check in neutral and hot. Should be in the cross hatched area. Make sure also that the oil is not burnt. It won't smell good to begin with, but you should notice if it is burnt smelling. Should be red in color. If ok. may have internal transmission problems.

SOURCE: truck starts and idles down
You may have a vacuum leak. My problem was with the L-shaped rubber hose at the top of the engine near the firewall. It had collapsed and dry-rotted. Replaced it and my truck runs like a gem. I believe it was fouling out my coils on plugs. This may not work, but would not hurt to try. Good Luck!

SOURCE: I recently replaced the EGR
Temporarily disconnect the new EGR and see if it helps. You may get a check light from the EGR, but you will know if its the problem. You might want to check your paperwork for the EGR and see if the engine requires a different part#.
Also do a leak test on the Intake manifold. Use a water spray bottle or choke cleaner safe for plastic and rubber. Then, while the engine runs, spray around the seams on the Intake, the EGR, and any switch having a Vacuum fitting. When you find a leak the RPM will change. Then fix the leak.
Some of the v-6 manifolds were 2 piece and the gaskets fail, then some motors have 2 solenoids on top of the engine with vacuum lines leading to 2 pods on the manifold. The solenoids are known to stick. Try using WD40 and spray inside the solenoids to free them.
