lol thanks for the advice! Definitely not a 2.0 swap lmao this thing is slower than sh!t. I’ll start with the plugs and go from there.
Obviously the spark plugs is necessary now, so go ahead and change those.

Otherwise, any boost of fuel trim related codes? If not, you could just be experiencing the normal horsepower loss due to this 80+ degree air we've be having in this region.

spark plugs are getting done today. And it doesn’t feel like a loss of horsepower as much as hesitation with acceleration. It feels like the engine is cutting in and out when on the throttle. I didn’t know if the escape had the same issues with the intercooler as the focus does.
The 1.6 models do have transmission issues...

Get the plugs done first though, let us know if that changes anything before we go down that rabbit hole.
