Question about 1990 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Ford escort Hi, I was wondering if your ford escort's check engine light was coming on or not before you put in the new ecm. I have same prob with my 90 escort and found the ecm had a capacitor exploded. I had it repaired but it did not fix the problem. Still no check engine light and no spark. any input would be great.

    Hi rachaelrose,



    There was no check engine light at ant time and after I replaced

    the module on the distributor and checked the engine codes

    I could not find the reason for the no spark condition.

    I towed the car to the diagnostic shop where they said it was the

    ecm. That is when I replaced it and has been working great ever sense.

What courses ford escort not spark


Hi, theres alot of componets that can cause that issue. The basics are: coil packs, ign. Control module, ecm, and a few various sensors. Now, did u run out gas by chance? Or did vechicle get impacted? There is a fuel cut out switch that may need resetting. Is your check engine light on? Get a obd2 scanner and check for error codes, that should point you in the right direction.

Did you have the ECM programmed ? When you turn the key to the on position does the check engine light come on for few seconds an then go out ? Does it start an run ?

We just got a 1998 ford escort, automatic with 106,000 mi on it. two weeks passed and the check engine light came on. It was the tps, it was changed n no change. The car turns on after third try, jumps at...


Did you reset the computer because if you don't the computer does'nt reconize the new sensor and it will run as if you did'nt even replace it.You can reset it with a scan tool,or take the ground cable off battery for 30 seconds or pull the ECM fuse then put it back.

Escort has engine light on, diagnostics say 02 sensor is out, both were replaced, same code for 02 sensor bad shows up, replaced again, same code shows up


MOST OF THE TIME AN 02 CODE DOES NOT MEAN REPLACE 02 SENSOR..SOME AUTO PARTS STORES WILL SCAN YOUR CAR..TELL YOU CODE 02 SO PEOPLE AUTOMATICALLY REPLACE SENSORS...IF YOU CLEAR THE CODES DOES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME BACK ON RIGHT AWAY OR DOES IT TAKE A LITTLE TIME... IF IT TAKES A LITTLE TIME THEN YOU HAVE SOME PROBLEMS THAT ARE CAUSING THE EMMISSIONS TO BE OUT OF RANGE.. IF THE LIGHT COMES BACK ON RIGHT AWAY YOU HAVE A PROBLEM IN WIRING HARNESS BETWEEN THE SENSOR AND ECM....MAIN COMPUTER.....OR SECONDLY POSSIBLE PROB IN THE MAIN COMPUTER...GET SOME OF THOSE ANSWERS AND FIND THE EXACT CODE THAT RETURNS THEN GET BACK WITH ME FOR MORE HELP

Well our escorts are built in liverpool uk and valencia here in spain,and if this is the problem with the autos many thanks for the info as it always comes in handy providing that i can remember it all .When you are a general mechanic like myself and not a dealer only so to speak ,then you have to fault find as you go along and work from basics.Now this is all very well on older vehicles but some of these new ones i cant evan change a battery without the immobiliser cutting in.Some of the newer mercs and VWs i cant evan change the oil or the brake pads without the immobiliser coming on.Also please dont mention the real bane of my life -----RENAULTS---and encrypted software .How these cars do in the states where the OBDII plug is connected into the car to test the emmisions ,with their renault only plug connector layout and encrypted software that would do mossad or the cia proud i can only wonder ??

Engine will not start!!!


was the timing belt changed, since it overheated the cam may have gotten tight and the belt might have jumped 2-3 teeth and you still would have a spark and fuel pressure.

Engine runs on when driving along


Sounds like the choke is sticking on, that would also explain the heavy fuel consumption
