Question about 1993 Ford Escort 4 Door
I have a 4 door '93 Ford Escort LX Wagon. Last year it started jerking when climbing hills and the shop told us we needed a new fuel pump. I took it for a second opinion and it turned out it needed a new filter or something in the front of the engine block. It ran fine for awhile, with just a little jerking left. We parked it all winter/summer and started driving it again this last month. It's jerking really bad in first and second. Once you get to third, it's better, unless you try to climb hills. It's almost like it's trying to get enough gas, and can't. Not sure it's the fuel pump, though sounds like it to me. It does do better if I rev it up a little before going to first, and then shift a little later, with higher RPMs. Ideas? (we did get a fuel pump to put in)
If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.
