Question about 2002 Ford Escape
Surges and knocks and stalls while idleing
If you have the 3.0 V6, look at the intake runners and see if there is a large black "can" towards the passenger side near the top. If it is there, the gasket for it is probably leaking vacuum. If you don't have it, check the entire engine for a vacuum leak.

I had the same symptoms on my 1993 F-150. A friend of mine commented that he could smell gas in the exhaust. Eventually, it got to where it would start, then die after a few minutes and wouldn't restart after that (at least for several hours). It turned out to be a bad fuel pressure regulator that was causing it to flood. It was about a $25 part and an hour labor to replace (not difficult, just awkward getting to the hex head bolts).

SOURCE: ENGINE SURGES AT IDLE
with the engine running lift hood and lisen for a vacum leak and check all your vacum lines. if no vacum leak can be found then replace the idle air control valve.

Listen before you spend the money try a simple thing first. At our shop we start with the EGR solenoid, locate it, remove it, make sure that the ports are clear. Carbon build can cause your symptoms
