If you have a V6 and it's like my 2002 V6, it will depend on with plug/coil you need to replace. The front 3 are very easy to replace. For the back 3, you'll need to remove the upper intake manifold (get a gasket set from the parts store).
Assuming it's a COP system (Coil Over Plug), each plug has it's own coil. Unplug the wires from the coil. Remove the one bolt with an 8mm? socket. Pull the coil off the plug. Using the correct socket, remove the plug.
If you have to remove the manifold for the back 3 plugs/coils, that will be more complicated. I would recomend going to:

Add do a search for "intake manifold remove".
One of the first one's will have excellent instructions and photos.

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

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

Intermittent missfire # 3 cyl. 2004 ford escape 3.0


I have a 2002 Escape 3L. Your 2004 is probably the same. I have over 100,000 miles. I have had the P030x code a couple times. Each time it was one of the COPs (Coil over Plug). Each spark plug has it's own coil on top of the spark plug. The last time, I replaced all 6 coils (and 6 plugs). It's a fairly common issue on the Escapes.

You could try to switch the coil with another coil and see if the misfire moves with the coil.
Unfortunetly, the #1, #2, & #3 coils are in the back of the engine under the intake manifold. The intake needs to be removed to access the plugs and coils.

If you're going to do this yourself, I recommend replacing all 6 plugs and coils. Use the same brand plugs as the old. The OEM coils can be expensive $75? each. I got my aftermarket coils on Ebay for $80? for 6 coils delivered. You'll also need the gasket set for the upper intake manifold ($10). If you have some wrenching experience, it's not too difficult... it just takes some time to remove the intake and the plumbing attached to it.

Where are the spark plugs?


Hi,


They are right next to the oil filler cap on either the 4 cylinder or the V-6. The ignition coils are on top of them is why they can't be seen.
The connectors and the coils need to be removed before you can take the spark plug out.
A very easy task,isn't it.
Wish you the best..

Ignition coil location


Follow the plug wires back to the coil. This engine does not use "coil on plug" so there is only one coil. If there is a cover on top of the engine, most likely it's under the cover.
