These are the codes that came up at Advance Auto Zone:


P0303 FORD - Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected

C1234 FORD - Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal Missing

B1676 FORD - Battery Pack Voltage Out Of Range

C1175 FORD - Left Rear Wheel Speed Sensor Input Circuit Failure


The one I'm only worried about is P0303, the misfire in cylinder 3. All my other cars I've done a turn up by replacing the spark plugs and wires. But when I called a garage about the work they wanted to charge me to do their own diagnostic test to know for sure what was wrong and to only replace the spark plugs, coils and/or wires that are bad. But in 80's and 90's cars that I've had I've always replaced everything at once. Since these Escape's have so much to take off to get to the spark plugs I think the guy just wants me to do it over and over again for each spark plug that becomes a problem.


And even doing this work I've found out on here that it always doesn tsolve the problem.


What should I do? Do it all or just trade it in when I get another job?


I can't afford going to a dealer.


Thank you for the help.
