    So you have trouble starting it after it has already been running and you have to wait for it to cool down?

I'll give you a list of a few things that could be causing your problem. However, I think it's most likely a bad ignition module. I looked this up on the web and I see a lot of ignition module problems for the 2002 Escape. I checked the Ford recall list but there was no recall issued for what looks to be a very common problem with the ignition module.

Here are some other things that could be causing your problem.
1. Bad ignition coil
2. Clogged fuel filter
3. Clogged air filter
4. Clogged fuel injectors
5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor.

Intermittent missfire # 3 cyl. 2004 ford escape 3.0


I have a 2002 Escape 3L. Your 2004 is probably the same. I have over 100,000 miles. I have had the P030x code a couple times. Each time it was one of the COPs (Coil over Plug). Each spark plug has it's own coil on top of the spark plug. The last time, I replaced all 6 coils (and 6 plugs). It's a fairly common issue on the Escapes.

You could try to switch the coil with another coil and see if the misfire moves with the coil.
Unfortunetly, the #1, #2, & #3 coils are in the back of the engine under the intake manifold. The intake needs to be removed to access the plugs and coils.

If you're going to do this yourself, I recommend replacing all 6 plugs and coils. Use the same brand plugs as the old. The OEM coils can be expensive $75? each. I got my aftermarket coils on Ebay for $80? for 6 coils delivered. You'll also need the gasket set for the upper intake manifold ($10). If you have some wrenching experience, it's not too difficult... it just takes some time to remove the intake and the plumbing attached to it.

I have a 2001 ford escape 2.0L and i was having trouble of it turning over when the car was warm. If it was a cold start it would start right up. If i drove for a while then turned it off, it wouldnt start back up unless i let it sit for an hr or 2. But once started it would run fine

SOLUTION: I changed the fuel injectors $120 for parts. And now all the hot starting problems went away.

Hope this helps

replace the IAC or clean it. If it doesnt open when you try to start your engine it will not start, after it cools down it may work and let it start Idle Air Control Valve

REPAIR MANUAL NEEDED!!!!


The 2002, 2003 and 2004 Mazda MPV's all use the same Ford 6 cyl. 3.0 duratec engine. The Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute of those years use the same engine. Therefore if you need an inexpensive engine repair manuel for your 2002 MPV, get the Haynes ($20.00) 2001-2007 Escape/Tribute manuel. Mazda sells the a MPV shop manuel for $180.00. I also own a 2002 Mazda MPV LX. 75k miles.
