Tip & How-To about Ford Escort
One problem I run into that's common and fairly easy to fix, is loose or dirty battery terminals. If you don't have maintenance done on your car regularly, this could be a problem you might see. Car dies out why you are driving or will not crank or start. You may think you have a dead battery or bad charging system. Cleaning your cables terminals could solve this problem. Get the proper tools and remove the battery terminals. Then using a battery terminal cleaner which looks like a round wire brush, clean the male and female sides of the terminals. Wash the top of the battery to remove dirt and acids with baking soda and or dishwashing soap. Do this once or twice a year. There are sprays and no cor rings which will help with battery acid corrosion so you won't have to do this so often. Good luck.
