Plug wires may be worn as well as other ignition parts--the code could mean bad 02 sensors or vacuum leak or dirty fuel injectors--get car scanned by a tech II with a data stream

2004 Mercury Monterey Mini Van - At 75k, engine looses power occassionally while accelarating from a light or while cruising in the highway. Check engine light has been on since! Changed spark plugs, fuel...

I had a similar problem. Turned out it was a bad fuel rail pressure sensor. Thew a OBD-II Code P0193. Bought a new sensor and installed it in about an hour. Easy. $40. Depressurize the fuel system first by disconnecting the switch under the jack cover in the rear of the van.

2002 Ford Escape only gets 14 mpg, why?

There are a few possibilities for this.
1. Old air filter
2. Clogged catalytic converter
3. clogged fuel system

I would start with replacing the air filter then go from there. Your car should get about 20mpg with good gas. With it being winter you could just be getting a bad gas mix also.

On a 2.4 duel overhead cam installed plugs. /engine rough when accelarating

Possible bad spark plug wiring if you pulled on the wires instead of the connectors when changing the plugs. If the check engine light is on, go to Autozone or similar business for a free computer scan. Any error codes will direct you to a specific/general area problem. Good luck!

My gas mileage is horrible. what can i do to fix

Okay... K&N drop-in filter, NGK V-Power plugs (and NGK wires), run tires 2-4psi over manufacturer's recommendation, replace fuel filter anually, use a good fuel system cleaner every oil change, use synthetic oil in the crankcase, transmission AND differentials, drive with windows up and A/C off (just vents), drive 55mph on freeway (this one is HUGE), slow acceleration and try not to drive short distances. These are all "hyper-mileage" techniques that garner better fuel economy. If there is a mechanical problem causing the fuel economy to be bad, the spark plugs, wires and filters ought to be a help.

i hope this helps out,
