2001 Ford Escape 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 164000 miles

Engine on my 2001 Ford Escape does not start.

My troubleshooting so far:
1) Checked for spark - spark on all 6
2) Checked compression: 185 psi on 4, 195 on another and 215 on another
3) While doing the compression test did not remove fuel pump relay - there was strong gas smell - so I assume fuel pump is working.
4) Checked all fuses - all are ok


What else should I check?

how do you set the timing on this car

how to set the timing

I have a 2001 ford escape xls 4 cyl 5 speed, 65k miles when i turn wheel i hear like knocking sounds,creaking when i turn left or right, can this be a belt? the surpentine belt i dont think been replaced. I checked the steering fluid & level was ok also i hear a wine noise in idle coming from under that back seat near the gas tank. i can hear it under the vehicle & in the back seat also.

Just bought a 2001 Ford Escape. When the engine is running at idle and you rev it up the idle stays high idle and very slowly returns to idle. It takes about 2 min for the idle to return to normal. The check engine light is on and I had it plugged into a diagnostic computer and it came up with an egr problem and now it says # 2 cyl misfire. Could it be a vacum leak? Is this a common problem? It has 120000 miles I bought it out of impound for 500.00 Anyone have any ideas? Im a mechanic but I work on heavy equipment.

I believe the issue is the throttle body or idle control valve. In morning or when vehicle sits awhile, the car starts, but then shuts down due to the idling hitting 0. My vehicle has 333,000 miles. Maintenance has always been just oil changes. It's a good running vehicle. Also, where would the throttle body be located.

door wont open from outside or inside

how do you open lift gate on 2001 ford escape if power locks don't work?

My 2001 Ford Escape started with hesitations every once and a while on rainy days. The frequency of the hesitations increased and it was loosing power. It was to the point that I could not drive it anymore with confidence that I would make it home. I scanned the system and found that short term and long term fuel trim will swing 150+%. This was only happening on the SHRTFT3, SHRTFT4, LONGFT3, and LONGFT4 which I believe is front bank of cylinder. I replaced the O2 sensor, spark plugs, and swapped the injectors from front to back. This made no difference. I measured the exhaust pressure at the front O2 sensor and it was 10 psi vs 2 psi at the rear bank O2 sensor. The catalytic converter was plugged. I removed the converter and removed the internals so it would free flow. This helped some. I checked the spark on each of the 6 cylinders and cylinders 4 and 6 were weak so I replaced them. This made the most difference but it still has no power (will not go 55 mph). It does not throw a code anymore. I check the compression and it is fine on all three cylinders on the front bank. I have reconnected all of the electrical connectors from the PCM to injectors. I am becoming more convinced that the PCM is bad but I do not know how to test it and I do not want to buy a new one to find out that the old one is fine. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
