    bad fuel filter would make sense, but doesnt explain the noise. It acted like it didn't have gas a few times before, but was always fine when restarted. other than that no other warning

    oil level is fine but only stays on if i hold the key

that's cause your endine is about to die. check your oil level all the time like once a day. sounds like your rods are tapping and it's not worth fixing usually unless you treated your car like gold maintenance wise it's whole life

SOURCE: 1999 escort making knocking noise

this could be a rocker noise that is more noticeable under these conditions or it could be a colapsed piston skirt thats starting to go bad.its hard to say for sure when trying to diag noises on the internet.its possible it could be a loose timing belt,i`ve had that happen before as well.

SOURCE: 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.

Problem starting 1999 escort. has fuel, spark, timinging is dead on the money. acts like it will start but wont


Check the air mass meter or air mass sensor, also the crack sensor can cause this fault.

EGR valve but the car will normally still start with that fault. most common is the air mass sensor, you can just try and clean it first and check the wires to the sensor its most likely the air mass sensor or air related fault.

I have a 1999 ZX2 ford escort that starts, but dies in seconds


It is was a gas filter problem blocking gas flowing from the pump. What happening was that when it was trying to **** the last drop of gas into the engine it really disturbed dirts inside the fuel filter and made it clogged at fine mesh. And also make sure give sometime for gas delivered into the fuel line it since it was empty when you change the fuel filter. It means you have to keep starting for a while so gas can go up to the fuel distributor then injectors.
