Engine Light on and Miss Firing
I just drove my Ford Escape 2002 from Vancouver Canada to Mexico (over 5000 km) and as soon as we arrived the oil light went on and then the engine light.
I put the oil in, but the engine light returned a few days later and has stayed on for the last week and now the engine seems to flutter or miss fire.
It is very noticeable when I first start the vehicle, and then seems to get a better as it warms up.
I am about to take it to mechanic, preferrably a Ford Dealership but I would like an idea of what this could be before walking in blindly, as sometimes mechanics here can take advantage.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
