It could be you have a bad distributor ar bad spark plugs. It is also a possibility that the cars computer was programmed wrongly. Either way I would suggest going to a Ford Repair shop and having them run a systems check on the computer to properly diagnose what is happening.

My 2005 Ford Escape XLT stared reving the engine really high usually at a stop. Now the rpm's will go really low at a stop but when pushing the gas the engine revs really high and takes a bit to go back...


ever do the 60k mile tune up, yet (aka: tuneups?)
clean the EGR first, most cars with EGR need 50k service,
if it stick open motor will stall .
idle controls are complex on newer cars with fly by wire.
if not fly by wire, clean the ISC .
possible #3 is induction air leaks (aka vacuum leaks)
Is the CEL lamp glowing? running?
if yes, the ECU is trying its best to tell you what is wrong.
listen to it, that is called a scan tool (cheap as $7)

My 2001day Ford Escape XLT has check engine light on. The parts store pulled the codesand its a gear 3 ratio issue and a miss fire on first and second cyl. Could these two be related or does the gear ratio...


Gear ratio does point to an internal transmission issue. The misfires can easily be diagnosed by swapping thing around and seeing if the code follows. For example misfire in cylinder number 1 & 2 swap coils to cylinder number 3 & 4 and if the code changes from P0301(2) to P 0303(4) you know you need coils.

My 2005 ford escape v6 is only firing on cylinder 1 and 6


Your an 2005 Ford Escape 3.0L, you don`t have a distributor. Each cylinder has it`s own coil and is controlled by the PCM. You need to scan the PCM to determine which cylinder is loosing power ( misfire). P0301 cylinder #1, P0302 Cylinder #2 and so on. The coils are common problems with this vehicle, but pay close attention that the drivers in the PCM are not at fault. #1 cylinder is on passenger side near the firewall passenger compartment. firing order as follows, Bank #1 1-2-3 front of engine to rear. nearest the passenger compartment. I`m an ASE Master with 30 years experience. Be careful, don`t waste money on unneeded parts! I own my own company. 805-369-4589 Jerry Bryant. Advise is free, but like reading a diagnostic manual does not mean the problem is solved. Correct diagnoses and system inspection and testing is what needs to be done so you don`t waste money!

I have a 2001 ford escape xlt 4 wheel drive. i had a diagnostic test done & it said it detected a misfire in cylinder 3. i am a do it yourselfer and am going to change all 6 spark plugs but the problem...


I am assuming that you have a V6 Engine because 1, 3 and 5 would be on the other side of 2, 4 and 6. A Striaght in line engine would have them all in a row.

But another way to locate your spark plugs would be to find your Spark plug wires and follow them to the spark plug.

Good Luck

Hi, I have a 2001 Ford Escape XLT V6. It has been jerking intermittently while driving and for a couple days my check engine light was on but then turned off. Code P0305 came up on the reader saying...


Take the cover off the engine, there you will view below you three coils, disconnect the wire from the middle one only after disconnecting the battery, disconnect the wire harness to that coil, remove the not securing that with a 5/16 socket trhen pull straight up, replacement is opposite removal.

I need the firing order of 06 ford f150 xlt reg cab 4x4 v8(5.4l) its say on my scanner misfire number 6 cylinder


Cylinders 1-2-3-4 are on the passenger side. 5-6-7-8 are on the drivers side.

Check the spark output on the number 6 coil by removing it, installing a spark tester, and start the vehicle. If there is no spark swap the coil with the #5 coil. If it still doesn't spark replace the coil. Very common for them to go bad.

Check Engine Light on Yr2001 Ford Escape V-6 2wd. Code says: Misfire on cylinder #5. Dealer said compression is low in cylinder #5. This Escape needs to pass smog. What can we do?


If the engine has a P0305 DTC (Data Trouble Code) for a "cylinder 5 mis-fire detected", then the first thing to do is to do a compression test to determine if the mis-fire is actually being caused by a mechanical problem, or an electronic problem.

If the engine really does have low compression on the #5 cylinder then that is caused by a mechanical mis-fire and nothing electronic will repair it, and the most common causes for a mechanical mis-fire would be a burnt or bent intake or exhaust valve, a warped cylinder head or damaged head gasket, or a damaged piston. You can call around and find a repair shop that will do a "compression leak down test" if you want to know exactly what is causing the compression leak without any dis-assembly to the engine.
