I have a 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 base model. Since I've owned the car, I noticed that when I accelerate, the car has a loud whine. It sounds like the car has a supercharger. Any ideas?

Hi Joshua:
I had a friend with a similar problem. It turned out to be a bearing in the alternator. He actually got to like the sound.

2002 ford escort zx2 replaced fuel filter, air filter, plugs, and MAS...why won't it stay running?

it could be down to your spark plug leads take the leads out one by one and get somebody to hold the lead to the engine [to earth it] NOT WITH YOUR HAND with something thats not conductive like something plastic then try starting the engine to see if a spark jumps from the lead and repeat this please dont do this with your hand its very dangerous enouf voltage to knock you out!

1999 ford escort zx2 cranks but won't start

As with any no-start issue, you will need to figure out if you have a problem with fuel pressure to the injectors, or spark to the plugs.
I would also check the computer for trouble codes.
Let me know what you find out.

2000 ford escort zx2 wont start

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
