You may want to replace your crankshaft position sensor. They tend to "open" the circuit when they get heated after they have begun to wear out.

My ford escort 1998, started smoking badly from


Hi:
If the smoke is whitish in color, and just started doing this suddenly, then most likely you have a leaking head gasket, and it is letting coolant get in your cylinder, and possibly oil into your coolant. I am not sure about the noises you are hearing, but you should have your car checked out as soon as possible, or your engine could be permanently damaged, or it could be already.

95 escort smoke from vents vibration when accelerating why??


The smoke you could be seeing may be steam, your heater inside the vehicle may have a leak and causing steam to rise out of the vents, if you are smelling the steam this is what I suspect.
Engine vibration could be a number of things, check the engine mounts to start, one of them is probably broken.

98 ford wind star running hot


Warm the engine up to operating temperature. Does the upper radiator hose get warm? If no, then cange the thermostat. If yes, then the thermostat is working fine. On the thermostat housing, there is a sensor. Some engines have 2 sensors. One goes to the computer and the other goes to the temp needle in the dash. Unplug the harness and put a jumper wire in the harness. Turn the key to on, and see if the temp needle goes up. Which ever harness causes the needle to go up, replace that sensor. Hope this helps.
