Hey Diaz8440:

Did you ever resolve this? I have the EXACT same symptom. #6 and #4 are DEAD! New, plugs, coils, PCM, injectors.

I ran some tests and proved it wasnt electrical and it wasnt injectors. Compression looks good.

I saw a post at where some mechanic had the same exact issue.

That site,, however, is reserved ONLY for professional mechanics. They wont let us in to see the answer. I am suspicious that there is something peculiar going on here with this issue.

Please advise if you ever resolved this. It's my son's car and after it melted two CATs I now have 2K tied up in it. I am past the point of giving up. I MUST fix it!

04 escape has code 354,356,300,316

Possible Bad COP Ignition Coils on #4 & #6 cylinder

Forget the 300 & 316 of no use to you

PO 304 is the same as PO354 or letter D
PO 306 is the same as PO356 or letter F

If the codes are the actual bad coils -you won't have to pull
the upper intake off

My 2005 ford escape v6 is only firing on cylinder 1 and 6

Your an 2005 Ford Escape 3.0L, you don`t have a distributor. Each cylinder has it`s own coil and is controlled by the PCM. You need to scan the PCM to determine which cylinder is loosing power ( misfire). P0301 cylinder #1, P0302 Cylinder #2 and so on. The coils are common problems with this vehicle, but pay close attention that the drivers in the PCM are not at fault. #1 cylinder is on passenger side near the firewall passenger compartment. firing order as follows, Bank #1 1-2-3 front of engine to rear. nearest the passenger compartment. I`m an ASE Master with 30 years experience. Be careful, don`t waste money on unneeded parts! I own my own company. 805-369-4589 Jerry Bryant. Advise is free, but like reading a diagnostic manual does not mean the problem is solved. Correct diagnoses and system inspection and testing is what needs to be done so you don`t waste money!

05 Ford Escape, coils #3 & #4 not firing. We've replaced the battery, spark plugs, alternator, coil packs, & pcm. Had pcm reflashed. Garage said it had to be coil packs, but just replaced coil packs 3

Check engine light on ? Code's ? What engine ? 2.3 l 4cylinder or 3.ol v-6 This vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , not coil packs ! a coil per cylinder . If new coils an still has no spark , has no B+ voltage to the coil or the PCM isn't controlling them . Without testing i'd only be guessing as to the problem .If the repair shop you had it to can only say it had to be the coils , I'd find another shop to take it to !

On my 2003 Ford Escape 3.0L VIN 1 I have the following codes, PO316,305,306,300,304. Are these codes caused by a possible vacuum leakl? If so what would be the likely spot?

Forget the 300 & 316

The 304,305 &306 are ignition coil codes for
#4 ,#5 ,#6 cylinders

Doubt you have more than 1 bad coil

Check for Vacuum Leaks -- they wouldn't
help any, but are the cause of 80% of all
O2 Sensor Codes.

You may luck out & if any coils are bad, you won't
have to remove the upper intake (this time around)

You will get at least one bad coil a year on all fords

Have the intake manifold Smoke Tested with an EVAP
Smoke Machine,for leaks

Misfire #4 p0304 engine is sluggish.rough idle at times

Check the coil, a good test is to change the coil with another cylinder and see if the misfire moves to that cylinder, if it moves then you will know its the coil make sure to mark it so you know which one to replace, this is very common for coils to go bad, heres a diagram to help you locate #4 cylinder.couldnt get diagram but if its a four cylinder then #4 is the last one back if its a 6 cylinder then it will be the first cylinder on the driverside .first cylinder from the front to rear,
