Check you EGR or your IAC valve. If either of these are bad they will make your car run rough and would also make you have all the problems that you are describing. I would take it to another mechanic and have them run the check engine light code. That will tell you exactly what is going on. If you are not leaking oil everywhere, you do not have broken valves or pistons then you do not need a new motor. Your car and motor are to new to need a new one. especially if it never over heated. Your mechanic is just trying to make a big buck

No check engine light on runs rough while in gear


Plug Mis-firing (firing-but not adequately) no light and no fire.
Causes: Spark plug bad, spark plug wire leaking.
If you can pull the spark plugs - and you find that one of them is wet or very dirty - compared to the others....the you have the wire/plug source identified.

Runs rough


How long have you had this problem? It could just be a bad tank of gas. Other things to check:
1. fuel pump and filter
Could be running on only 5 cylinders due to
2. spark plugs/wires
3. plugged fuel injector
Any problems with electrical? Like lights dimming at same time as running rough?
4. could be bad alternator putting excessive load on engine.

Ford Escape 3L 2002 Rough idle


generally, when the engine is washed, water gets trapped behind the spark unit and stays there, creating a shorting path for spark plug current. best to dis-mount the spark unit (follow plug wires back to source) and dry and clean it thoroughly.
