comment Ford Escape 2002 idling rough in cold weather
I cleared the codes, and I've driven it maybe 10-15 miles since. I experienced more of the stuttering around 40-45 miles, but it hasn't thrown another code. I just ordered a new Motorcraft DPFE sensor, since it seemed like a good relatively cheap first step.

Do you have a Dremel that you could slot it with? (Or a friend with a Dremel?)

comment Easy way to temporarily disable Check Engine light?
Also, if the problem doesn't reoccur, normally a fixed number of key/startup cycles clears the code.

comment How do I unstick my tailgate?
I figured the cable was broken - the problem is, how do I get inside the tailgate to pull it? I've got a plastic bed liner over it - should I remove that for starters?

@phlip: See the update section in the answer. Yes, one of the pads was bad.
