Question about 1997 Ford Escort
My 2008 Ford Escort (last of breed before the Focus) has developed an intermittent 'cough' when I go to take off or accelerate in second, and sometimes third gears. Also an occasional roaring as if from a faulty exhaust can be heard which rapidly disappears when further speed is gained. Overall performance doesn't seem to be below par. New four point plugs were recently fitted in an effort to solve the problem. No go. Engine seems to idle normally. Any sound advice appreciated.
Vehicle returned from major service at garage. Suspected possible overfilling of oil in sump. Checked and found too much. Drained roughly half a pint out to lower level (to top point on dip stick) then cleaned sooted plugs and haven't had the problem since.
A qualified reply would have been appreciated but suspect that this site is to obtain email addresses and get people to pay for a subsequent advice point ...

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
