OUR SPARK PLUGS HAD SUPPOSEDLY BEEN CHANGED JUST PRIOR TO US GETTING MY WIFES RIGNOOOOOOOOOOOT!
CAUSED A BUNCH OF JERKINESS WHILE RUNNING--THEY WERE ALSO WAY OVER-GAPPED, THE PLASTIC INTAKE PLENUM DEALEE HAD TO BE REMOVE TO ACCESS THE OTHER 3
ALSO REMOVING AND CLEANING THE EGR HELPED TO
THIS WAS ANOTHER PROBLEM WE HAD:
Our Escape would idle low, then it got to point it would die when you stopped. Revving + holding brake was only way to keep it running. Took it to fellow R/C airplane pilot, he doubles as a S.C. State HWY DEPT mechanic.. When I got to his house, he was repairing a tractor. Told him my sob story. Escape was still barely running, I raised the hood. He said, (and I quote)."It could be the IDLE AIR CONTROL(IAC)", as he pointed to it, and emphasied it with a sharp rap using the wrench in his hand. It straightened right up, and ran damn good. That was a 15/16 Craftsman wrench, box end, kinda a medium rap. YES, I visited parts store and replaced it.
THIS IS WHERE IT IS ON MINE, AND YOU WILL SEE HOW EZ IT IS TO DO
IAC WAS NEVER MENTIONED IN YOUR QUESTION 'LESS I MISSED IT!---NOT TOO EXPENSIVE EITHER
I HOPE THIS EZily GETS YOU GOING
