Could be a fault in the Evap system (a loose/defective gas-cap), water in the fuel, defective I.A.C. is possible.
When the rough idle issue occurs does the engine light come on?

Car runs rough around 20 mph then smooth out when I go faster


Possibly a vaccuum leak in a small line.. Would cause the engine to idle rough.. Also a bad sensor valve.

What causes a ford freestyle to die while it's in motion? Have replaced fuel filter & pump with same result


Ford's like to have EGR problems that cause rough idle and acceleration problems. Usually a person can remove the EGR valve and clean the gunk out of it with some carb cleaner and it seems to fix said problem. This was the case on my 2003 ford Escape FWIW

My 2004 escape has a rough idle.cleaned aic. No effect. Other ideas are trs, egr, or the cat. I would love advice before I start throwing a whole new truck in to my truck! Thanks!


First, is the check engine light on ? If it is you would have it scanned for trouble codes to hopefully get some clues.
A rough idle is usually caused by cylinders not firing or not producing power. And the check engine light should be on if that is happening.
A faulty cat would only cause the engine to load up. The EGR could cause a rough idle due to a vac leak but again it should cause the warning light to come on.
You could have something going on in the gas tank. 2003 was the last year Ford used a fuel filter outside the gas tank, so something could have clogged up the injectors.

My 2002 ford escape is losing power when going up an incline and idles real rough when at a stop


there can be many causes for lack of power many autoparts stores such as autozone can read codes stored in your vehicles memory which would help to narrow the possibilities. I expect it to have a P03xx code the xx being the cylinder that is misfiring which could possibly lead to a bad coil.

My ford escape idle very rough. it accelerates fine. i need help to solve the problem


If your Escape is v-6 powered a common problem believe it or not is a solenoid in the transmission that allows the torque converter to "unlock" at idle. If the solenoid is bad then the torque converter stays locked and puts a load on the engine causing rough idle in gear at stop.

My 2001 ford escape idles rough when cold and sometimes chokes off. There was a hose that was sucking closed. I replaced the hose with a more sturdy elbo and the problem was better. Now its as bad as...


Yes fords are notorious for the i.a.c. or idle air control going out. At my shop we change probably 5/week. The vacume elbows tent to let the oil rot the rummer and once it sucks a hole in it the engine is getting more air than fuel causing a poor running condition. (lean) If it only idles poorly but runs fine with your foot on the accelerator, then the IAC will solve your problem. Also, pull the big breather tube off of the throttle body and see if around the round butterfly it is coated with black build-up. You can use a rag and your pointer finger to work around the sides. The factory built these vehicles so that the throttle is open the slightest bit so it will idle-when the black crud builds up around it the air is blocked from entering the engine which will also cause a poor idle. Hope this helps!
