Question about 1995 Ford Escort
Son pruchased a 95 escort has low ks car ran fine in jan 08 when he put it on the road but after a week or so he noticed the rpms were running high on one day we stoped at the bank and when he put the car into drive the rpms shot up past 3 he shut the car off after 10 min or so when he was done the car started up fine, it did this a few more times but then in the summer with warm weather he never had a problem, now that the weather is getting cooler the car is starting to rev high again this time you can feel the high rpms as you are driving and when you come to a full stop at a light or intersection it feels as if the car just wants to take off and when you take your foot off the break the car takes off as if there is cruse control car is not equiped with cruse contron, he reasently replaced the timeing chain and fan belt, just last week he had to stop and get it checked out at a guarage the only way he could explain his problem was to stay in the car with his foot on the brake and not put it into park the machanic did what he could as once in the shop the car would not do what he had showed him he cleaned the o2 intake and something else said it was full of carbon but now the car is still having issues and the check engin light comes on and off not sure if maybe there was a recall on 1995 Ford escorts for any kind of rpm issues but every time we take the car into the machanic the car will not do what we have discribed can you help ?????
Recheck the timming marks on the timming belt sometimes when the release the belt tenisioner it go's off in cam timming this changes the vacume on the low end and this could be your problem.
A Smog station can somtimes locate if youre dealing with fuel or timming. But I think this is what it is. C69
