Make sure the plug gaps are set to 25th to start with as if they are too wide then will cause hard starting but as for the fuel consumption then i do feel you will to entrust this vehicle to a local mechanic and have the compression checked and see what they can find its very difficult to advise from another continent

2002 Mercedes C320 very poor fuel economy ~8 mpg, no engine codes or faults present


I'm not sure what the problem is specifically, but I can assure you this--you're basically throwing money way (and possibly exacerbating the issue) by using 93 octane fuel. Your car is timed and tuned to run most economically and with best performance with 87 octane fuel. The higher the octane, the slower the fuel burns. Longer burn time can equate to more power, but ONLY if your engine is designed and tuned for this application.
Couple of suggestions..checkto make sure your exhaust is "free". A plugged catalytic converter can really rob mileage. Tire pressure and air filter are worth mentioning as well.

Fuel is burning out really fast 45,000 miles


You need to tune your car up. New air and gas filters.Put some new plugs and wires on the car. Check the tread and psi in your tires. Then you will get allot better gas mpg. Hope this helps!

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.

I have 2002 ford focus new spark plug and wire and air filter and fuel filter snd i still have a very poor gas milage


It could be 2 things. The grade of gas you're using and / or your style of driving. Bump up to the next level of gas and don't put your foot into it as much. Get off the gas earlier when coming to a stop. I have a full size SUV and I average 24 MPG city.

Tune Time.
1)new spark plugs properly gapped.
2)new air filter (check every 35000 miles)
3)new fuel filter (every 35000 miles)
4)1 bottle of STP fuel treatment (red bottle) 4x a year.
5) oil and filter change (castrol or another good quality oil every 3-4000 miles.
6)proper air pressure in tires (check every 2 months
7) service transmission every 40000 miles or less.

New oil and filter

IAC control valve. Locato\ion 2002 ford escape


If it's not idling and has problems starting, it's probably the IAC motor. It's located on the throttle body. Follow the airfilter box all the way to the engine, where the rubber flex hose attaches. The throttle body should be the first aluminum part you come to. Attached to the side you'll find small little aluminum part with a small wire harness attached. Unplug it, take the IAC motor off and clean inside with carb cleaner. This should fix the problem with the idle.

I'll give you a list of a few things that could be causing your problem. However, I think it's most likely a bad ignition module. I looked this up on the web and I see a lot of ignition module problems for the 2002 Escape. I checked the Ford recall list but there was no recall issued for what looks to be a very common problem with the ignition module.

Here are some other things that could be causing your problem.
1. Bad ignition coil
2. Clogged fuel filter
3. Clogged air filter
4. Clogged fuel injectors
5. Bad spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and /or rotor.
