Take your car to Auto Zone, O'reilly's, or other auto parts stores that do "code reading" for free. It could be something simple that you can fix, or if more complicated, a mechanic, but start by getting the car's codes read. Good luck!

SOURCE: Ford Escape 3L 2002 Rough idle

generally, when the engine is washed, water gets trapped behind the spark unit and stays there, creating a shorting path for spark plug current. best to dis-mount the spark unit (follow plug wires back to source) and dry and clean it thoroughly.

SOURCE: error code p0303 cylinder 3

A P0303 code – The #3 cylinder is in question. The computer has noticed that one of the cylinders is firing improperly.

Symptoms may include:

  • the engine may be harder to start
  • the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate
  • other symptoms may also be present
Poss. Causes:
A code P0303 may mean that one or more of the following has occurred:
  1. Faulty spark plug or wire
  2. Faulty coil (pack)
  3. Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
  4. Faulty fuel injector
  5. Burned exhaust valve
  6. Faulty catalytic converter(s)
  7. Running out of fuel
  8. Poor compression
  9. Defective computer
Poss. Solution(s):
If you are not having any of the above problems, then I would recommend resetting the code and see if it comes back.
If you experience / notice the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check the condition of the Spark Plug wires and boots. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. Another possibility could be faulty fuel injectors..

Good luck. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to fix mis firing of engine that cause

Sounds like it could be your Idle Air Control valve (IAC). The IAC does as it sounds and controls the idle in your vehicle. When these go bad, you can either clean them with a throttle body cleaner or replace them. Most people replace them as they are normally not very expensive and relatively easy to replace. The IAC is located on the throttle body which is where the air duct hose ends as it comes out of the air filter box. It is normally held on with a couple screws and just needs to be unplugged and plug the new one in. Please, please let me know if you have any further questions. If you can't find the location of the part let me know. Also if you don't think the IAC is your problem and have addition information that could point to something else, let me know. Here is a picture of what you are looking for: 656346b.jpg
This is the IAC for the 6 cylinder engine but it is different and more expensive on the 4. Let me know if you have the 4 and need a picture of it. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: IAC control valve. Locato\ion 2002 ford escape

If it's not idling and has problems starting, it's probably the IAC motor. It's located on the throttle body. Follow the airfilter box all the way to the engine, where the rubber flex hose attaches. The throttle body should be the first aluminum part you come to. Attached to the side you'll find small little aluminum part with a small wire harness attached. Unplug it, take the IAC motor off and clean inside with carb cleaner. This should fix the problem with the idle.

My 2004 escape has a rough idle.cleaned aic. No effect. Other ideas are trs, egr, or the cat. I would love advice before I start throwing a whole new truck in to my truck! Thanks!


First, is the check engine light on ? If it is you would have it scanned for trouble codes to hopefully get some clues.
A rough idle is usually caused by cylinders not firing or not producing power. And the check engine light should be on if that is happening.
A faulty cat would only cause the engine to load up. The EGR could cause a rough idle due to a vac leak but again it should cause the warning light to come on.
You could have something going on in the gas tank. 2003 was the last year Ford used a fuel filter outside the gas tank, so something could have clogged up the injectors.

My 2002 ford escape is losing power when going up an incline and idles real rough when at a stop


there can be many causes for lack of power many autoparts stores such as autozone can read codes stored in your vehicles memory which would help to narrow the possibilities. I expect it to have a P03xx code the xx being the cylinder that is misfiring which could possibly lead to a bad coil.

My ford escape idle very rough. it accelerates fine. i need help to solve the problem


If your Escape is v-6 powered a common problem believe it or not is a solenoid in the transmission that allows the torque converter to "unlock" at idle. If the solenoid is bad then the torque converter stays locked and puts a load on the engine causing rough idle in gear at stop.

Just bought a used Ford Escape 2001 and the "check engine light is constantly on. Diagnostic tests reads malfunctioning cylinder #4. What does this mean and what is involved in getting it fixed?


might be something as simple as changing the spark plug or related wire, could also be damadge to the valve train or piston and cylinder bore

What causes my ford escape to rough idle occasionally?


Could be a fault in the Evap system (a loose/defective gas-cap), water in the fuel, defective I.A.C. is possible.
When the rough idle issue occurs does the engine light come on?
