Question about 2003 Ford Escape
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:
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!
