Check the coolant tempetuure sensor .if this does work properly the engine control unit thinks the car is warm when in fact its cold.

98 Ford escort zx2 has hard time taking off after


Disconnect your air mass sensor. It monitors the cleanlyness of your air filter. Test drive the car. If the symptoms went away, replace your air flow sensor assembly. It's pretty pricy, about $80. You can drive your car with the air flow sensor quick harness disconnected until you can afford to buy the sensor.

I Have A 93 Ford Escort Lx Im Having A Problem Accelerating After Driving It For About Ten Minutes I Will Drive It For A Little Then When I Come To A Stop Light It Sputters And Jumps Around And Sometimes...


By the sounds of it, its like once your car gets hot its starts playing up. You should run a compression test on all ur cylinders..you can get a tester from your local automotive store quite cheap, you just screw it in or shove it in and hold it, start the car and use the throttle cable hinge to rev the car slowly up to redline.. do that while the engine is quite hot though to get a more accurate reading, especially because i think thats when your car starts playing up (when its hot) im just going to say it should be around 140 for all cylinders.. just double check that and cross check your readings with ford. It also could be a ECU problem, once your car is running hot (normal temp) the tuning is wrong.

Engine over-run between gears


This is a very common problem for ford. I have the same thing every day. It is the computer not reading the temp. When it does that just tap the gas pedal.

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.

Ford tick over problem


Hi there!

A few more things to check for you.-

A vacuum leak in any of the vacuum hoses will cause the ECU to make random guesses at what's going on.

Have you replaced plugs recently - or at all? This is probably the main cause - and certainly worth a try.

Fuel filter should be replaced at recommended intervals - about 3 years.

Clean your leads and HT gear really well with a degreasant. Any losses will be more noticable at tickover than high revs.

Lastly.........wear on cam lobes or timing belt.

Hope it's cheap for you!
Please spare a moment to rate as fixya! if any of this information proves useful. Thanks (I don't get paid for this)
