Had the same issue with our 2004 Escape this winter. Ford knows about
it, and our service said there was a software/parameter change for the
PCM (computer) which would fix it.
Well, it didn't seem to be much better immediately after, but over the
last couple of months since, we haven't noticed it any more....
