There is no spark plug relay

You may have had a COP Ignition Coil,changed for #2, based on a PO302 code

What codes do you have now?

Sometimes the code won't tell you which coil is bad,if it is a bad spike,it will set a lot of wrong codes.

The PO300 Misfire, first 1000 Revolutions,you forget, means nothing to you.

You may have to buy a new coil and move it from one cylinder to the next,to find the bad one.

Unfortunately you have to remove the intake manifold, to do right bank coils

Hope your not still on 5 year old spark plugs. If so, remove intake,do plugs,install 3 new coils, on back cylinders and save them, to use on future coil issues or front bank,current problems.

    There is no such thing as a governor system, on a US made Ford product.

My escape keeps misfiring on cylinder 6 and has another multiple misfire, i have to change the spark plugs seems like every other month and ive replaced the boots and it still misfires anyone have thi

The flashing light means the problem is serious and you should not drive the truck. This probably happens when you are accelerating.
Since each cylinder has a coil, it could be moisture in the main wiring harness or a connection.
Could also involve the fuel injectors. You could have water in the gas for example.
The code means that cylinder is not producing power, not a lack of spark.

It drinks too much in the city. Way too much. What can I do to change this?

If a tune up hasn't been done in a while, it certainly would help to have fresh spark plugs and fuel filter as well as air filter and oil change. Keeping the tires properly inflated will reduce unnecessary fuel consumption, and turn the ac off when you're stopped and accelerating then turn it on when youre cruising at speed.
