Question about 2000 Ford Escort
2000 FORD ESCORT 2.0 ENGINE 96000 MILES ENGINE RUNS BAD AT LOW RPMS, DOES NOT IDLE, HAS NEW PLUGS AND WIRES AND MAF SENSOR THROTTLE BODY IS CLEANED AND TIMING BELT HAS NOT JUMPED NOW WHERE DO I GO
On the sohc engine there is a rubber elbow on back of the valve cover going over to a line at the fuel injection that cracks at about 100K miles and lets the engine **** air and it will idle horrible til you fix it. Check this and see if it's not your problem...I've had it happen to 3 sohc engines and the dealer wanted $400 to fix the first one for my friend...Took about 30 seconds to pop the hood and pull it off, 3 minutes to glue it back together, an hour to dry, and 30 seconds to reinstall it...

Hi have checked the compressions if ok `check the injectors look for air leaks around the inlet manifold and if its been over heated make sure the throttle bodies not warped good luck yates210456
