Starting Problem on 4cyl. 99' Ford Escort

I was driving on the freeway and after driving 500 miles the car engine suddenly turned off . When tuning the key it sounds like it wants to start but won't. Do you think it could be the fuel pump?

    I have a 99 Ford Escort SW. I was driving and it just stopped. Checked fuel filter/getting gas. It turns over strong but will not start. One time it tried but not any more.

    Thanks,

    Pat

    I have the exact same problem. I drove about 300 miles and the car just shut off without warnign at the top of an exit ramp. Now it won't start. It acts like it wants to but just won't fire.

I have one Honda Accord 1999. One time, when I was driving, brake and steering wheel locked; oil light, battery light and brake light were on. What's happened to my car?


I have '99 accord LX 4cyl sedan and the ignition switch is a problem for these cars. I replaced my ignition 2 or 3 years ago because it would randomly shut off and sometimes not start back up right away. It only got worse until I fixed it, it would die on the highway or freeway sometimes. Haven't had that problem since. i think it cost like $240 or so. Also if you have an automatic, be careful, they are notoriously bad for going out after 100k miles. mine did and its an expensive fix. good luck.

I have a 99 Ford escort zx2 and the enigne quit while is was driv


This is a common problem for a crankshaft sensor failure. When it fails, the engine can not start since the ECM doesn't know the proper position of the crankshaft to give ignition according to TDC (top dead Center). Therefore it doesn't matter how strong your battery is, it won't fire. The fire is only happens when an ignition happens at the highest compression point when a piston is at top and this is reported by the crankshaft sensor. Have this checked out and replaced. Good luck.
