Did this video help you?

Jim Garrison: @*TheKurtser* Yes, I do believe you were able to change the spark plugs and plug wires on your '01 Taurus 3.0 without removing the intake. However, in case you didn't notice, this engine does not have spark plug wires it has coil packs. This is not the same 3.0L engine that you have in your car. The 2001 Taurus came with more than one 3.0L engine option and you have the Vulcan 3.0 which has plug wires and you can change the plugs without removing the intake manifold. This engine in the video is the 3.0L Duratec engine and there is no way in hell you are changing the spark plugs without taking that intake manifold off; trust me.

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 thinking--good lord!

mlpuppet70: Thanks for your video. I have a 2003 XLT Escape. I needed to change the spark plugs and coils. Your engine is very similar. Thanks! It really helped me out!!

countryOhio: You shouldn't gap already pre gapped iridium plugs lol 

Dug Williams: Cool! easier than I had hoped! Thanx! :)

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.

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?

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

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?

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.

mkkmb5: Thanks for the video. I think with your video pretty simply to do. I'm going to subscribe, thanks again.

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 straightforward. 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 not warm.

Armesis P: This engine is so unreliable and merely turns fuel into noise, typical ford crap

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 drastically

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. moneyhelpsss@yahoo.com. 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 remove.

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 minutes. Thanks!

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 Autolite plugs.

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 platinum ?

Téa Carlsen-Wareham: This is a question from my 83 year old small motors mechanic father…he is trying to fix our neighbours ride on a Briggs and Stratton 12Hp IC motor model 283707 (their first home and can't afford a new mower yet). He says the timing is out on the valve. The valve clearance is right but the intake valve is out. Is it possible that the cam shaft is bent and can that throw the timing out? 
maltbie.org: @urbex2007 Thanks, not to good with electrical calcs.., so your saying I could have used one 33 ohm resister? As far as the law gos--here in the US--, I think DOT will let you use fireflys in a jar for DRL's, but for headlamps that is a different story...Porsche and Audi from what I heard jumped through some hoops to get their new LED' HL's approved, and as we know diod lighting is going big now that things have crashed and oil is getting more and more mixed with blood.
