I have a 2004 ford v-6 escape and when it is rains or moist out it seams like it misfires, can do this for a 100 miles or a few, on hot and dry days runs great. We had it in a grage and they can not find out. Engine light gave code and they fix code and charge @ $600.00 and the next time it rain, it came back. Garage said it would be another $600.00 range, same thing was wrong again (coil)
Can you help me. Dave

The misfiring will send unburned fuel into the Catalytic Converter thereby clogging it. This is a common problem with Escapes. Don't drive it when misfiring and get the problem fixed. Cats have a warranty of 8yrs or 80,000 miles.
