My escape has been missing for about a week with no codes showing until after it up and died on me today, it started again just fine but the miss was way worse and the OBD was throwing code P0353 which indicates a malfunction on cyl. 3 so I replaced coil and plugs and reset the code, but still same problem. CEL came back on immediately. It has that crumby coil on plug design so I got 6 individual coils. Wiring problem? How would I test to see if the harness that connects to the coil is bad? Could a PCV leak be the cause? Or is it the dreaded PCM? Pls help me im stumped and strapped for cash, thanks for any and all advise
PS: im not a mechanic but I feel I know enough to get by, so if you can simplify any suggestions i'd greatly appreciate it
have the same problem?
