Your ignition coil misfires, most likely ruined the converter
before they reached 12 to 14 years of age

You need all ignition issues resolved,coil issues resolved,
new converters,new O2 Sensors etc

You have no choice & can expect to pay over a $1000

Unless you have the vehicle scoped a couple times a year
& data looked at, your going to keep getting into what your
have now. You just drive until it breaks down, That is what
everyone does & it won't work on todays technology.

Your intake manifold has to come of just to do spark plugs
& coils on that motor,which is a MAZDA

You mean when you turn OFF the Over Drive the problem goes away?

What you are actually doing is this, the TCC Solenoid is being turned off and the shuttering stops, that means your TCC has an Issue and is kicking on and off, on and off, on and off... There is 2 EASY ways to fix this. First you are taking a shot in the dark, second will fix it for the long run.
(a) Service your Transmission, new Filter and New Fluid. this will take care of the problem 50% of the time
(b) Service your Transmission with a new Filter and New Fluid and while you have the Pan OFF... REPLACE THE TCC Solenoid (One 10mm Bold holds it in place) and then finish the service,. This will take care of the problem 99% of the time.

I just did this to my 2002 Expedition and fixed the problem. Solenoid is available on Ebay for less than $40. you have to know how many BOLTS hold your Transmission Pan on. But it will fix your issue

We have a 2002 Ford Escape, 3.0. Sometimes after driving it you can stop and turn it off but it won't start. After it has been parked for sometime, 3 hours or more it will start. Sometimes it will

I would try running it in the driveway for 10 or 15 min and see if the problem occurs. If you can duplicate the problem you can try to troubleshoot it.
When it will not start you need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel pressure problem. It could be a relay, or a crank sensor, or the fuel pump in the tank. I would expect to find something in the engine compartment that is getting hot and stops working.
I assume the check engine light is not on.

The engine stopped while driving on 2003 Ford escape. Oil light, check engine light and the battery light came on

oil, check engine and battery will always be on when the engine is dead--because there's no oil pressure, nor battery charging. A faulty oil pressure sending would never prevent the engine from starting. You'll have to tow it to a shop to find out why

While at a stand still car jerks like it wants to cut off

if its not throwing a check engine or service engine soon light. then theres a chance it could be a fault with your torque converter/transmission. my wife drives a 02 escape and im of the opinion its a pile of **** and im going to trade it in ASAP.

My 2002 Escape is stuck in reverse

I am uncertain what escape you drive but if this is the 4 cylinder version, then you will require a new transmission or have your transmission serviced. You asked why? Because Ford did not put a transmission cooler on the 4 cylinder, but only on the 6 cylinder version with the tow package, which prevents your transmission from overheating. Furthermore, you have to change your transmission fluid at greater intervals to prevent harm to your transmission.

Moreover, is this a manual transmission or automatic
?. If this is a automatic, you maybe able to manipulate the shift linkage cable on the transmission and get it out of reverse.
