idles rough at low rpm scan tool shows poor contibution from cylinder 2 and almost as bad with cylinder 3 goes good down the road doesnt stall but poor power on take off computer is not communicating with egr or o2 sensors either

Have tried with remote,with key,and main controls.The child safety feature should let you open the door from the outside,but it is also locked.

Should I have body shop replace or do it myself??

sound last only about 20 - 30 seconds

WHERE IS AMBIENT SENSOR LOCATED, PROBLEMS RELATED TO THIS SENSOR!

AC GETS HOT AT HIGHER AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS AND WHEN L STOP STARTS TO GET COOL.AT IDLE IN DRVEWAY IS COOL!

when stopped it will almost die. give it gas to take off and it goes no where no rpm. in park though the engine rpm is fine problem is when car is in gear

i need to replace it or can it be fixed

It cant hold an idle, even in neutral. Took it to mechanic and spent 800 on plugs, etc. brought back twice. Ran fine for two days and now worse than ever. It idles so rough it is almost rocking, and then stalls. Engine light is on constantly. Any ideas?

Replaced Throttle sensor but light is still on. What next?

No warning no rough idle no bucking or hesitation. It will restart when I shift to neutral than it will do it again. The car will run fine for a couple weeks than do it again. What do you think. No codes or service engine light.
Thanks

Can I swap the COPs from a 01 Escape 3.0 and replace them with the COPs from a 01 Mustang 4.6?

After blowing out 2 EGR valves and following recommendations that it was a plugged Cat (Catalytic Converter) I finally after much ado got the Cat right behind the flex pipe off and a bunch of gray matter (not like the stuff inside your skull) came out of the Cat. looked like honeycmb but was in small chunks and some of the chunks looked like they were melted so I guess I found my back pressure/blown EGR valve problem. Looks to me like there's another (much larger) Cat about 2 feet behind that one between the 1st Cat and the muffler (which is way back at the rear of the car). Guess I'll pull that one to to see of more gray junk falls out. Have a good picture of the gray stuff but don't know how to post it here.

I believe it's a plugged CAT but my question...is there a way to know which CAT is plugged?

have 2 week old battery car will not stay on in low idle only when you push gas to go faster
