This sounds like the pick-up inside the distributor cap needs to be replaced. Wouldn't hurt to install new spark plugs, being 'sure' they are gapped propperly! Frankster016

I have a 1999 Ford Escort with 99,000 miles on it.Couple days ago it just stopped running as I was cruzing down the highway.Can hear the fuel pump running and getting gas out of the injector when tit


now you need to check for a broken power wire to the coil and check fuses breakers also.can even be corroded inside a plug . good luck, tracing can be a pain a haynes book would help you locate plug ins , ect, fuses ,wires .

Both turn signals on my 1998 Ford Escort zx2 don't flash.


The 98 Escort is actually a Mazda 323 with Ford trim. It uses a solid state flasher relay for both turn signals and hazard lights.
The relay is behind the speedometer. My guess is the relay has died.
You can look it up online or check with your local auto parts store to get a visual.

I was driving down freeway when my 98 ford zx2 backfired and died, it felt like i was out of gas but i wasnt. It turns over but i dont think im getting any fire. There was a strong emission smell present....


Clean all the corrosion from the battery, take some spare wire and any crimp on ends you can get, splice all the bad wiring back together. Cut the wires till you get to good clean copper.

I have a 2004 suzuki forenza it has 53000 miles on it and all of a sudden it stopped running on the freeway its acting like it is out of gas


If it acts like it's out of gas maybe it's really out of gas - the fuel pump has died or the fuel filter is clogged . Check them.
