The check engine light came on. I was wondering if you could tell me what it might be? Also how big of a danger is it for me to wait a week or two to fix it? Im only driving 5-10 miles a day in town. ...


Check engine light, means your car computer pick up a code, most auto parts or autozone will pull codes, get back with us with the trouble code number. so we can help you diag. your trouble code, more the likely it pick up a cylinder miss fire, nothing a tune-up won't fix, from what your saying, you should be alright for a few weeks till you can have it check out, the system will go into limp mode and will not stall or die on you.

Engine stalls. Will start but engine runs for only a few minutes then stalls. Could it be a clogged fuel filter? Assuming it is the fuel system.


If it's running for a few minutes, it is likely the filter. If it's a few seconds, it will be the MAF. Mass air flow sensor.

Car spits and sputters and stalls after driving a while


sounds like a fuel pump problem,with fuel pumps u can have pressure but not enough volume,try goin up a steeper hill in 2nd gear and get about 3000 rpms on the engine and see if it really drops out bad and is really gutless,if that happens without a check engine light coming on it might be yur pump and u should also replace the fuel filter at the same time,hope this helps

1989 EscortTac shows surges in RPM, but engine does not race up.


How many miles, has the timing belt ever been changed? (60,000-70,000 miles) when the belt gets near or over it's recommended change mileage it will get loose and cause the engine to run like it has a miss, mostly when cold, also u may need to do the following procedure, Escorts need this more than most other Ford cars
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

2002 sequioa sudden stall


Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.

Hope this helps,
Mark.
