Question about Ford Escape
P0316 can come on intermittently showing a crank/misfire detection in the engine system. Over time you will notice this fault get worse, especially in wet/damp weather. The fault is usually cause by water ingress into the coil areas above the spark plugs. You need to take the coils out, smear some vasaline ( or similar substance) around the rubber seals on the coil units and refit them, ensuring there is no water in/around the spark plug. If so blow the water out and dry this area. Hope this helps...vote for me.
