It may help to know where the noise is coming from, you are there to look at it, we are not. Fords are famouus for bad threads in the heads for the spark plugs. A shop can put in a new insert.

Why a 2002 ford explorer idles rough?

Several things can cause rough idle on a Ford.

Check all vacuum hoses for, first of all, that they are there, and then that they have not been chewed by mice or squirrels (that happens), or rotted away (that happens too).

Check the coil pack(s) for corrosion at spark plug terminals, check plug wires--at night, the darker the better, raise hood with engine running; blue sparks or lightning jumping around the wires and plugs means your wires are dead--check plugs for fouling or tip wear, if your car has over 100,000 miles check catalytic converter and fuel filter, and check the TPS. The throttle position sensor monitors where the gas pedal is, and since most of the time, it is at the place that makes the car go 55, or idle, the TPS can get worn in those positions and send false signals to the PCM. Fords of that vintage also used a pulsed air feeder that can cause rough idle and is very difficult to service.

Best bet is vacuum leak first, then spark, then fuel, then the out-there stuff.

2002 honda accord car not starting or running rough when

Engine needs two things spark and fuel to run. both will cause problem your having. easiest thing to try is starting fluid spray into air intake to motor by opening air filter box. someone spray and someone start or run car - if performace changes possibly the fuel pump is going bad. If nothing improves you can look for spark problems which can be plugs or wires or ignition module(s)

Changing the plugs is a good idea. The pcv, pop it out and give it a shake, if it 'rattles' put it back in. Now with starting fluid, check for a vaccum leak around the intake. Do this with the engine at idle speed, it will pick up when you hit the spot. Install the gasket or replace the hose that fell off, Way ya go! Frankster016

2002 Ford Escape rough idling

If you have this problem its possible you got water in the main harness conector on the top middle firewall. I used a hairdryer and put some silicone on mine to help. Also, the coils on the sparkplugs and the rubber around the spark plug can easily fill with water so check all plugs and holes.
