2004 ford escape shakes when at idle
The check engine light is on. We changed
a coil and 3 spark plugs. Now it shakes on
idle and had a little bit of white smoke
coming out. Im hoping its not the head
Run a compression test to see if a cylinder is low. Have you had it scanned for trouble codes? Also why did you change ONLY 3 spark plugs?
Havent done that yet. Yes that how i found out that a coil wasnt working. I have to drive the truck at leadt 50 miles before i can check it again. Those 3 spark plugs where easy to get to.
Water in motor not good at all. You or your wife's been running it to hot or without oil I bet major problems
Replacing the back 3 plugs requires you to remove the upper intake. Scan for the fault codes first like Bob mentioned to see what the issue is before replacing any more parts and guess.
Im taking it with my boyfriend today to get the code read again. We restarted it and took the old codes off. Hopefully now we can see what is wrong with it.
So the same code came up. Still have no idea what it could be. Maybe a valve?
