I bought a 2014 Ford Escape SE a week ago with 63k on it. The next day, the CEL came on and was flashing. It ran real rough when this happened. Luckily, I wasn't far from the dealership. They changed all 3 plugs and one coil pack. It ran like a top for a few days and then the light came back on. P304 is the code that came up. So, back to the dealer it went. No rough run, no sputter, no shortness of power but the tech said it has another bad coil pack. Research within this forum suggested other possibilities and I asked the service people if they had done a pressure test or anything. They did not, nor could they verify the past recalls on this thing. So, they gave me a day to bring it back. On my way to work this morning, going down a hill, the RPMs shot up and the "i" light came on telling me the coolant level was low. It's right around the minimum line. I have not smelled coolant nor have I observed any leaks. I'm no mechanic but I don't think it's just another coil pack. Dealership is on strike 2 before they buy this damn thing back... advice???
