My escort (same year/make/model) just had a bad ignition coil that made it run real rough. It did not have any computer codes come up, either. I would ask about that...

Your catalytic converter plugging up will cause these problems. if it gets bad enough it won't allow engine to run at all, to much back pressure.

Stalled .Had tune up 2 days ago, then 'Test Only' smog yesterday. After 1.5 years problem-free driving, car shuddered as it turned a corner and stalled. Will not start. Had to tow it home.


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exceptions to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

CODE 214 95 FORD ESCORT LX 1.9 NO DISTRIBUTOR WHAT THE CODE MEAN?


This code on this vehicle decodes to "cylinder identification circuit fault" or "CID error."
This code is highly vague unfortunately and represents a general sensor and/or sensor circuit (wiring or plug) error.
You didnt mention any running issues or problems. It is important to note that as well as if the code clears itself and the check engine light goes away or if it has been on for a long period (weeks or more of daily commuting). This might help a technician if you decide to bring it to one.

You could clean and inspect all sensor harnesses and plugs.

If the vehicle idles rough or sometimes wants to stall when at a stop (especially when the check engine light is on the most likely culprit is the camshaft sensor which is very inexpensive, and a fairly common problem, but they are a bunch of work to get at.

best wishes!

1996 EXPLORER This TSB article is being republished in its entirety to include the 1995 4.6L Thunderbird/Cougar. ISSUE: After a 1-4 hour engine soak time, long crank times and/or long crank to start followed by a stall may occur on some vehicles. No further stalling or rough idle will occur after the engine is running. The long crank and/or stall may be due to the Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve sticking.
ACTION: Replace the IAC Valve with a revised IAC Valve if no Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Perform normal diagnostics and correct any DTCs as required by referring to the appropriate year Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) Service Manual.
  2. If no codes are present, replace the IAC Valve by referring to the appropriate model/year Service Manual, Section 03-14. Refer to the following Idle Air Control Valve Application Chart for proper IAC usage.

Car stalling out


I just went through this. It's your Idle Air Control Valve probably going out. It's next to the throttle body right on top. Two bolts and a wire. Be sure to unplug negative side of battery before changing to get rid of that pesky check engine light! best of luck!

Car stalled at stop and won't start.


if the vehicle did cut of and if the timing belt is broken chances are you have damaged the valves in the head, the 1.9 engines are famous for it, however i would first install the timing bel and a water pump properly and try starting the car if it starts make sure it is running smooth if it runs rough, or if it fails to stop, you definately have bent valves usually all the exhaust valves and if this be the cse the heaad has to be worked on in a machine shop
