Question Answered: Car runs rough
May 18, 2013, 11:33 AM
My 2002 Ford Escape is doing exactly the same. So far have spent over 2k on repairs only to have the check engine light come on again this week. Misfire on cylinder #4. I have put more into this piece of crap than it is now worth, just want to get it fixed long enough to trade it in on something other than a Ford!!
Problem Reported: Ignition Misfires

<p>The common problem for ignition misfires are ignition coils going bad. Replacement of the bad ignition coil is necessary. These should be fixed as soon as a problem is detected. Otherwise the misfire can cause damage to other components.</p>
Problem Reported: Failure of EGR Differential Pressure Sensor

<p>The DPFE (differential pressure feedback EGR) sensor tends to fail. The DPFE sensor monitors function of the <a id="ce_8609" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/exhaust-gas-recirculation-valve">EGR valve</a> by measuring pressure changes in the <a class="ct_encyclopedia tooltip" href="/exhaust-gas-recirculation-system">exhaust gas recirculation <span class="ct_info tooltip">(EGR) system</span></a>. Symptoms of a failing DPFE sensor are hesitation or stumbling when driving along with illumination of the <a class="ct_auto care advice tooltip" href="/understanding-the-check-engine-light"><span class="ct_selected tooltip">Check Engine Light</span></a>.</p>
Car Review: 2002 Ford Escape

Worst vehicle I have ever purchased. The 6 cd changer works when it wants to, the odometer light works when it wants to. the sunroof switch does not work, so the sunroof will not seal well, so everytime it rains, it floods the inside of the vehicle. Have just had all 3 catalytic converters replaced, along with egr valve and dpfe sensor....and check engine light came on two days after i got it back from the shop and gave them over $2000 to "fix it". Have also had to change the ABS sensor, brakes, belts and it it is leaking oil on the engine and needs new rear struts. Can't wait to get it running good enough to get rid of.
