Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Ford Escape 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles
I got my car washed the other day and the engine began misfiring immediately. The check engine light was flashing. After several hours the misfiring stopped but the check engine light remained on. After a few days the light went off. Today there has been heavy rain and the problem returned. I had the codes pulled at autozone and it said that there was an ignition problem with the #2 cylinder. It seems as though moisture is getting into the ignition system somewhere between the coil, plug cable, and spark plugs. My first plan is to replace all 6 cables and plugs and see if that works. Does this sound like a good plan? Should I go ahead and replace the coil on the #2 cylinder also? Thanks for the help!
