Question about 2002 Ford Escape
After a heavy water cleaning of the engine compartment, the engine runs rough. The spark plugs were wet and were cleaned and dried. Vehicle still runs rough and when shifted to R it dies. Filters are OK, cables. The check engine light came on. Any help will be accepted.
We had the same problem on ours. Ours was running a cylinder misfire. We changed the plugs, and the Coil Packs, and now (About a year later) Its running rough again with a check engine light, and were not sure what it is.

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.
