My son hit the ditch with it and there was lots of snow. Immediately after it started running bad. Took to a shop and they replaced the MAFS and an O2 sensor, spent 8 hours on it and couldn't figure it out and gave up. Took to a ford dealer and they said the MAFS, so I took it home and did tests myself and sensor seems good, but bought one anyway and not the issue. I got a used PCM and had it programmed and still not the issue. Some of the ignition coils were cracked, replaced them all and the spark plugs. When disconnect MAFS you can drive it but very sluggish and can just reach high way speeds if flat. There is strong fuel smell from the exhaust.
Could the exhaust system ie the catalytic converter be blocked when alternator quit, making the fuel in the exhaust not get burned by the engines poor spark and the fuel rich gas got burned inside the converter. Car misses at 4 rpms and sounds louder now.
Car runs fine otherwise. Just started having the problem today when I accelerated to 4,000 rpm coming up the hill to my house.

I have a 2002 Ford Escape with 3.0 Liter engine. The engine has just been replaced tranny rebuilt 1.5 years ago, AC rebuilt last year. Now when I am driving in town with the traffic lights the ac starts blowing warm air and engine sounds like it is about to die.(running very rough) I can push the pedal to the floor and it sputters and coughs a little and eventually is will run normal, and the AC goes back to blowing cold air. If I am on the freeway it runs like a charm as long as I keep the RPMs higher than 3500. but if I start slowing it blows warm air unless I get the RPMs back up. Does anyone know what is wrong with my car?
My car broke down a week ago... car lost all power, and battery wasn't charging... I limped it hope by charging it and driving for a few miles... ect... I replaced the alternator the next day. Seemed to be running ok... but the batter light was flashing every little bit. Out of necessity I still drove it, but it broke down just a few days ago with the same symptoms. But with a quick jump it starts right back up. Bought a new battery and the light is still flashing. I am at a complete loss with this. The only other thought that I have is connections being corroded. If anyone can give me some insight I would greatly appreciate it.
truck is driving in FRONT wheel mode, no action to the rear wheels. this IS a 4 wheel drive w/a dash switch. stores say they don't carry or even know if this vehicle has a actuator/module? is their a fuse? or am I looking at a tranny replace?
