Darth Raider: Thank God I have the 2.3L inline 4 in my Escape. It's a breeze compared to
the V6. All that work just to get the spark plugs out? What was Ford
countryOhio: You shouldn't gap already pre gapped iridium plugs lol
Dug Williams: Cool! easier than I had hoped!
bench175: Thank you for your Ford Escape videos.
Autumn Ahlers: I was able to change plugs and coils on my 2007 Escape, in about 1 and a
half hours, using this video. Thanks a bunch. Saved me some serious cash.
1Rukee: I was able to do the job without removing the cables, just the pass side
cable bracket. Also I did not need to remove the vacuum or coolant lines
under the throttle body, and then just slide the intake forward instead of
removing the intake totally to gain access to the rear coils and plugs.
Saves a few steps and time.
tigertank88m: Yes, do yourself a big favor and replace the pcv valve. It's still a pain
to change, I have a 2004 v6 3.0. You'll need a very long nose pliers and
the pcv valve turns on with a type of thread. Get it on right or you'll get
oil smell through your vents.
Michael H: THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO MAKE THIS VIDEO!
Dirtyharry70585: Take your time and getr done 1 hr.
My 2001 had plugs that rust thru, fubared the cats :\ Didn't know until
kid said car been running bad, I'd change those pig out before 100k or
8yrs. The valve cover holes can hold water inside and stream the crap out
of the plugs!
pzircon kasperskie: ha
Electro: What a pain in the ass! I hate modern vehicles, whose brilliant idea was it
to put the spark plugs under all that crap?
Edward Riou: Thanks for this video. Hopefully I can follow and save money doing it
myself. Thanks again.
Rocco709: Is there are torque spec for the manifold bolts?
mkkmb5: Thanks for the video. I think with your video pretty simply to do. I'm
going to subscribe, thanks again.
Toolie35: I just done this job and I managed to lift the manifold up and over the
right with out removing the coolant lines. Might have been unique to my
model year but worth trying b4 removing the lines. Less to mess with.
lost7spirit: thank you this was very help and i feel more confident now
Markinpuff: I have read on some escapes the wiring harness is incorrect for cylinders
1,2,3 3 is on 1 and 1 on 3. This happen to me on my 2002 escape,
installed wrong at the factory... I'm not much of a mechanic, but with time
I think I could do it..
Tammie Dessa: Why do all cars these days use plastic crap! I have a friend that owns a
BMW it too has this plastic crap all over it guess to cut their costs and
stick it to the buyers
Jaime Ponce de Leon: I thought this was going to be a quick job... till i saw the engine. Its
going to be a pain in the ass, but this video make the disassemble pretty
Really appreciate people like you who film and explain the process.
Organicle Man: Thank you so much for this!
pontiachotshot: My tribute with the v6 has 64K miles on it...when should i do the spark
plugs ? and what type should i put in ?
N6EAJ: Great video thanks. My wife's 2003 V6 Ford Escape only had a few small
differences. Here is what the 2003 needed for this job. Spark plugs =
Motorcraft SP-433 platinum spark plugs. Upper intake oval rubber gaskets =
Ford YL8Z-9H486-AA (was a package of six). Replacing the oval gaskets also
fixed a shuttering/stuttering problems the Escape had when the motor was
Armesis P: This engine is so unreliable and merely turns fuel into noise, typical ford
David Xu: Great video, very clear explanation on removing intake manifold.
Brian Platino: Its crap like this that makes people neglect their engines. I would use
something heavier than paper towels to cover them. I have also found
Iridiums to be a waste of money, standard NGK's have performed better for
me. Good video, clear explanations.
mrfirewolf: my question is... why design a engine that to replace the back 3 spark
plugs you have to remove the intake manifold... just pure stupidity... i
say take the ford engineers throw then in a slave camp and make then work
on these pieces of crap every day all day... guarantee designs would change
moviegeek65: Might as well change the PCV valve while you have the intake manifold off,
Ford recommends spark plug and PCV change at 100,000 miles.
Nevil D: great video thanks for the help it's a better way of doing the job.
Daniel198549: Thanx bro for helping us
Cornelieus Fields: You dont know what you are talking about. I am replacing the plugs in my
2002 ford escape right now. Far as michigan again you dont know what you
are talking about. Any half ass mechanic will tell you even ford on a v6
you have to take off the intake. You need to take your comment off this
site because you are giving people wrong information.
firstname.lastname@example.org. If anyone is doing this job on a v6 contact me. I
can walk you through it. There are some line and hoses you so not have to
Frank289100: A few years back we were putting a cam an heads on a friends small block
Ford. We decided to buy a few different plugs from NGK, AC platinum,
Champions and Motorcrafts. We did a crank test with the lights off in his
garage with the plug removed and grounded to the body. It was amazing the
find out the only plug with bright strong blue spark was a cheap Motorcraft
plug. All the rest were dim blue sparks. Now I realize why all the Chevy
guys in there race cars used Motorcraft and Autolite plugs.
hrifes: No kidding. I think I'm just going to change the front three myself and
take it in to a dealer for the rest.
Reuben James: does anyone know the numbers for the cylinders?
EmofacePS3: god damn im glad i got the 2.5l I4 now cuz all the spark plugs on it are
right on top and easy to get to
natas kupas: I've been struggling with replacing ignition coils for the past 3 days i
got the front 3 in i jst need the back 3...can anyone tell me the order
they are like whichone is #1 or #2 #3 #4 #5 # 6
MrCd7: you said there were coolant hoses that needed to be removed, did you loose
any fluid/ did you have to bleed the cooling system afterward?
Cornelieus Fields: You are full of it. This is a v6 . You can not pull the coil over out with
out removing the intake. You dont have to disconnect all the stuff he is
talking about . But he did i right . But he didnt put in where you have to
tighten the bolts down in order.
Nick Perkins: Great video. Just changed the plugs on my girlfriend's Escape in 75
jasonkh: Just went to a shop and they quoted me 485$ to do this
TheKurtser: It is only the spark plugs and wires I changed on my 2001 Ford Taurus. And
it is possible to change them without removing the cover. A mechanic at a
garage said I could do this and I did. Mechanics are required to remove the
intake by law. It may not be as possible on some other cars.
DuratecDOHC: I will just say, Fords only take well to Autolite. Motorcraft plugs are
kelvonik: Thanks to this video I saved $209 that the mechanic was gonna charge me to
change the spark plugs on my 06 Tribute. Thanks man
MARS PLEX: This is retarded.. All this work to change spark plugs! And here i thought
the GM V6's were a pain in the ass having to un-do the front motor mount.
TheKurtser: I just changed mine without removing the intake manifold. Tight squeeze but
it is doable.
TheKurtser: It's not really that hard. you just need to reach back there a little
awkwardly a swivel socket wrench helps. Most garages at least in my state
of Michigan are not allowed to change them this way because it is
considered poor ergodynamics by OSHA.
Nolo Rivera: Very clear video!!! Thank you for it man :)
Shahrukh Khawaja: Hi. What kind of plugs are originally in the Ford escape 08. irridium or
Lynn Hancock: This was very helpful! Before seeing your video I thought it would take me
a whole day to do this, and I was ready to wimp out and take it to a repair
shop. But after watching your video it only took about an hour and a half
-- and it still runs! Thank you very much!
jdmrec0: I'm about to do this this weekend.
