My 2003 ford escape with 3.0 liter v6 has a rough idle, runs hot and has excessive exhaust
flow through egr, but only when both vacuum lines are connected to the egr. There are no fault codes stores. I have replaced the egr, egr solenoid, pcv and several vacuum lines with no change.
JA: Is the rough idle intermittent or consistent?
Customer: consistent and if engine
is run for very long it begins to over heat
JA: Are you fixing your Escape yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes i'm fixing it myself. i've replaced the egr, egr solenoid, sensor and several vacuum lines as well as pcv. also catalytic converters
are new. no fault codes recorded
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: yes the fuel pump has been changed due to noisy running
