Question about 2003 Ford Escape
I have a 2003 Ford escape 3.0 liter 4wd that comes up with misfires and the p0316 misfire code. I have replaced the plugs and wires and one coil, but the car light is still flashing and it is running rough. Feels like there is a lack of power as if the transmission isnt catching. Any ideas or suggestions? It has high miles on it. Thanks

Diagnose engine for engine misfire concern. If diagnostics determine an engine misfire which is characterized by leakage through exhaust valve(s), only replace the affected cylinder head(s).
SERVICE PROCEDURE FOR VEHICLES WITH RUNS ROUGH/MISFIRE CONDITION:
1. Perform relative compression check on all cylinders. If abnormal, check cylinder leakage and actual compression for "low" cylinders refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 303-00.
2. If leakage/compression check indicates a valve train concern, per valve train diagnostics in WSM, Section 303-00, replace cylinder head and cam assembly, pipe plugs and timing chain tensioner, per procedure outlined in WSM, Section 303-01.
3. If cylinder leakage and compression tests are inconclusive, perform misfire diagnostic, per TSB 05-22-8.
