SOURCE: Ford Escape 3L 2002 Rough idle

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.

SOURCE: 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.

HEVROLET BLAZER 2000 MISFIRING


Timing is off,problem with timing chain,also check fluids in ******,plus also if you have a distributer in your vehicle,if it is cracked,moisture getting in and ruining the points,-that is if your vehicle has a distributer! This will make a vehicle run rough as well.
You can have new plugs put in,but if your spark plug wires are cracked or worn,this will also creat misfire and backfiring.

At 40-45mph rough shift check engine light comes on and lack of power


A rough shift can result from the vehicle running rough. Lack of power and a vehicle running rough can be caused by one of two very common problems. One is a leak in the air duct between the air filter and the throttle body. The other is a leak from rubber hoses connecting the intake to the PCV valve at the crankcase causing a vacuum leak. More serious problems such as a misfire from a bad coil pack or a blown head gasket can also cause the vehicle to lose power and run poorly but these are not as common.

Expedition running rough on acceleration, it's a 5.4L.


running rough means it is misfiring.does it run smoothly without load or at idle?If it does then better check you fuel pressure as the engine needs more fuel under load.

2003 Silverado rough idle, idles good after "check engine" light


Check your o2 sensor voltage, those trucks are real bad for o2 sensors, and yes if one sensor is reading 0mv, the others will start to drop out, and the vehicle will run very, rough. You also may check fuel system pressure, should be almost 60p.s.i. If its alot lower, Id be looking into a fuel pump. If that vehicle is drive-by-wire (no throttle cable), the throttle bodies get very dirty and cause that concern also. Id start by having the vehicle scantested.

Random multiple misfirings


Here is a list of possible causes. You should not drive the vehicle if the check engine light is flashing all the time, you can cause even more damage. It could pay to have a professional find the real cause.

Spark plugs that are incorrect for the application, cracked, improperly gaped or worn can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An IC module that failed to correctly control the ignition coil(s) will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
Poor connections, broken wiring or wiring that has shorts to ground can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times. NOTE: Check connectors that might be pulled apart as the engine flexes or wires that short to ground as they pass near brackets or shorts to ground on the exhaust manifold.
Fuel injector(s) that are shorted, plugged or partially restricted can cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
An ignition coil(s) that has low output, corrosion on the coil tower(s), is carbon tracked or arcs to ground will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
A PCM that failed to properly control the injector or ignition timing will cause the engine to misfire or run rough at all times.
