2001 Ford Escape Repair Question
Changed 2 spark plugs in wrong order put old one back on,car turn on then turns off loses power
WHAT ENGINE YOU GOT?
THE LOSS OF POWER MAY NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PLUGS (OR IT MIGHT)
MY WIFEY HAS A '03 ESCAPE W/3.0L, THE DARN "RACK OF RIBS" WAS A "STUPID THING" TO DESIGN INTO THE MOTOR--IN ORDER TO GET TO THE REAR THREE COIL PACKS, IT HAD TO COME OFF.
WHAT TAKE ME 30 MINUTES OR LESS TO CHANGE "MY" PLUGS WIRES AND COILTAKES 2 HOURS OR MORE ON "HER" ESCAPE + IT'S A LOT MORE EXPENSIVE!....I PREFER REAL VEHICLES (JEEP CJs)
1ST THING YOU NEED TO DO---YOU PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE SOME MISFIRE CODES FROM SWAPPING STUFF AROUND
SEE THIS POST...MY 1ST ANSWER
THIS IS SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT TOO
A V6 with 217,000 miles w/ 3.0 L. I cant get it to a store it turns off after a few minutes. Bad timing and I can't afford to have it towed( why didnt I renew my AAA dangit! LOL) I just want to get it running and able to put down for a new car....my fiace and I only have the one so it's really hard because I work 8-5...He is about to start a new job....you get the picture. I am thinking I will have to get a mechanic to assess if possible or take it somewhere close until to push or tow it there.
