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.

If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.

Do I need to pull torque converter bolts out to pull my engine it's a 2006 ford escape with a 2.3 liter front wheel drive engine?

You should be able to pull the engine out of the car with the torque converter attached.I might suggest it will probably be easier to drop the engine and the tranny out of the car at the same time and then separate them.It will make installation easier. good luck

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.
