Question about 2003 Ford Escape

2003 ford escape 3.0L code PO353

Need some help!!!Ford Escape 3.0L 4Wd had codes PO 300,301,302,303,316,and353.I changed the plug and cop on #3 and cleared all codes.Ran about 30 minutes then just had code PO353.I had oil in the plug tube,which could cause a misfire due to bad tube seal.While changing with intake off i noticed that #3 intake port was totally dry,as if the injector wasn't firing.Wondering if this could be the issue,I have read that some vehicles shut down the injector if it misfires.The engine also has a loud tapping noise from the cam i am figuring that is due to the misfire on #3.I pray its not the PCM,as they are costly.Beginning to hate this car.will change gaskets to stop oil in tube but while its apart would like to know what else to check to get rid of this code.

    Hi james tyler, If the lifters on #3 are the one making noise they will need adjusting also the injector will need to be tested and power to the injector tested. Also make sure the spark plug wire is good or new. Have you checked these ?

I would think that many misfire codes would mean it runs terrible,coils go bad alot on the early ones,if it runs badly ,coils are suspect.
would say crank sensor if stiil runs ok,but the cam noise is not good,
lean or misfire won't make the cam noisy,something is broken in the valvetrain

SOURCE: 2007 Escape oil pressure issue/oil pump

one thing to keep in mind that even though the vehicle is new you can still have major engine issues, because of the bearing material may have been bad at production.taking this in account any part on a vehicle can fail prematurely either because of poor insatllation or improper manufacturing. As far as oil filters are concerned bthe odds of mechanic installing the wrong filter are slim to none.the oil pressure sending unit only senses that here is oil flowing through it. it doesn't set the light off unless there is absolutely no pressure at all the only way to see the pressure is to have a gauge. oil prssure should be abot 45 psi at 2000 rpms. the only way a filter would effect oil pressure is if it was completely clogged. It would take a great deal of coolant in the oil to ruin a set of bearings and before that happens your vehicle would not run very well and you would notice a great amount of white smoke out the exaust. this would indicated either a blown head gasket.cracked head or a cracked block. you never mentioned what they found in the anaylasis of the oil. I presume that your vehicle is still under warrenty on the powertrain. I would suggest that you have the dealership check your oil pump out. every vehicle will have a small amount of metalic residue in the oil. large shavings and chunks of metal would be a worry. please rate this thanks.

SOURCE: engine code p0307 cylinder #7 misfire

It could be carbon deposits on valve seats keeping valves from totally closing. You can try getting you a can of motorcraft PM3 top end engine cleaner and get engine up to operating temp then remove one of the small vacuum lines from the intake and draw the contents of the can slowly into the engine.After you have drawn in the contents shut engine off and let it soak for about 45 minutes then crank it back up and let it run until it clears. Now it will smoke like a forrest fire while you are doing this so don't be alarmed,just tell the neighbors you are spraying for mosqitos.This may cure the problem. If not you may be looking at a valve job.
This can be verified with a compression test if this is what is causing it.

After replacing the coil, plug and wire. The injector is working properly so I would say that you have a burnt exhaust valve. Get a cylinder leak down test or compression test to confirm this at a reputable mechanic.

2002 ford escape.....truck started sputtering and would not accelerate very fast and check engine light started blinking. what could it be?


I have an 2002 Escape with a 3.0L engine.
First you need to get a OBD2 scan for the check engine code.
I suspect the code will tell you that one of the cylinders is misfiring.
If you also have the V6 engine, the most common cause of misfire is one of the Coil-Over-Plugs (COP). Each cylinder has a COP on the spark plug.
On the V6, you need to remove the upper intake manifold to get the back 3 COPs.
If you have a V6, and you have cylinder misfire, I recommend replacing all the plugs and coils.

I have had 2 COPs go bad. The second time, I replaced all of them.

Removing the intake is fairly easy if you have some repair experience. You need to get an intake gasket set for about $10-15.
The coils run +$75 each for OEM. I went with Ebay aftermarket; 6 coils for about $80.
I recommend replacing the plugs with the exact same brand as original. There is no miracle plug that will give you better performance or mileage. Stay original.

Is that possible to unclogg the escape catalytic converter manifold?


no, if it's clogged, your COPS may be bad. Coils on plugs. Or it will do it again. expensive manifolds. Buy used at car-part.com, page with * is low price.

Buy new at tascafordparts.com for discount.

Bad COPS can take out engine computer too. Buy used too if needed.

CEL light on or flashing? That's usual scenario with DTC codes.

For the second time my 2005 escape has blown coils and broken down causing major damage and a huge repair bill. is this an ongoing problem


I has been an ongoing problem since 1998 on all ford products
with COP Ignition Coils

You can expect 1 or 2 a year

All you have to do, is get the code, eg:PO 305
Then you buy a coil for $60.00,remove 1 bolt and change coil #5

There is no big expense

Surely, you do not go to a dealer!!!
