Question about 2001 Ford Escape
I own a 2001 Ford Escape XLT. Lately when the idle is low the car acts like it wants to die (coming up on a stop, cruise control when RPMs drop). This only happens when it is hot outside and I've driven enough to be hot under the hood. On cool days this doesn't happen. My check engine light came on and it was diagnosed as cylinder one not firing properly. Dealer said the plug, coil, wires and PCM was fine. Then came back with the coil being bad. They replaced all 6 plugs (tune-up) Cylinder one coil pack, PVC line, and O2 sensor. Now that it is getting hotter out the check engine light is coming on again and it is doing the same thing. I had a diagnosis done and it says the same thing also. Should I go back to the dealer I had do the work in the first place? Do you have any suggestions of what might be wrong? Could it be the wires for that coil on Cylinder one?
Yes it could be,when it gets hot your experiencing your problem.the wires could be expanding and shorting out but you can't see this happen.change your wires.
