been having weird things happen while starting my escape, some days ill start it and itll come up Engine Fault and run extremely rough and misfire, if I shut it off and restart it, it works completely fine, the wire harness was already fixed with the recall, it has just over 100k KM on it and the issues been on an off for a year now, Ive taken it to dealerships before and they havnt been able to get it to act up, and if its happening during startup its impossible to drive anything over 40km with the whole engine and transmission jerking you out of your seat trying to shift

Check the negative battery cable for corrosion and being loose.
I had a lot of weird electrical gremlins
they were all caused by the negative battery cable!!!
