Re: Changed plugs 2003 Escape = disaster
I agree, if the performance was poor to begin with it might have been the injectors as the culprit all along.
The worst thing anyone can do when changing plugs, is not cleaning around them before removal (compressed air works the best). Once the dust settles down, remove the plugs. The last thing you want is crap falling into the cylinder, in which case removing the head is the only option to get it out unless it's metallic and you have one of those antenna magnets.
