You know Imma Jeep CJ kinda GuyWifey (my Boss) has a 3.0 2003 Escape too!
I too, just got over the repetitive skip, intermittent, mostly applying slight pedal on an incline, with her rig
I had help from here myself, 3 other experts, with 3 different solutions!
Turns out #6 coil-pack---always got to be the one trapped under a bunch of C. Rap. Removed several times of 2 months!
I woulda just bought "a" coil. Seems now-a-days every plug must have one---at $80 a pop. Trial and error, for a quick fix.I could not see it, and all of the solutions, did not include this as one of them.
THE DARN COMPUTER WOULD NOT TALK TO ME (it's buddy) NOR TO STRANGERS. As long as it would convey her local, back and forth to work, TIME WAS ON MY SIDE, + I do have a car dolly, if it came down to that!
2 months to solve it, I used input from all 3 of my Mentors to arrive at the solution.
I spent about $250, STILL WAY LESS THAN A SHOP. And now have several new components on her rig, maybe unnecessary, but with 100,000 miles, I view it as PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE, and now have spare parts, if in the future I need to swap 'em to "TEST" the other!
So, Yes, If you like continue please. This sorta interaction may have saved me a lot of heartache also!
By the way, thanks for coming here, I know it was not by accident!
