The ac unit is basically fridge compressor so when you turn it on it will sap around 10 to 15% your engines power
you could try getting a basic engine service done change the oil and oil/air and fuel fillters this should improve the overall performance

Why does a Ford focus deisel not fill without the pump constantly cutting out? It takes so long to trickle the deisel to fill the tank, the pump can time out twice before the tank is full.


just one of those things , try holding the nozzle as far out of the filler neck tube as you can with out spilling the fuel or try with the nozzle up the other way a little bit awkward but does let the air out of tank without pushing fuel back up filler

How many mpg does a ford escort 1.8td diesel get


The best way to find out how many miles to the gallon a vehicle does, is aquire two 1 gallon containers fill them up with deisel and then run your car out of fuel, add 1 gallon and reset your trip meter, this way you will know then, Just make sure you have a self bleeding system on your car before you try this, as some deisels have too be bled.

Ford Escort 1.8 deisel


Is this a normally aspirated diesel, or a turbo?
If its a normally aspirated, as most of the saloon/sedan models were, then there is nothing to be done. The engine outputs a whole 55kw and you suddenly start using 10 of them for air con...
If its the TD 70 or 90 then you may have a problem. The compressor does make a notable load on the engine, but should still be reasonably responsive. You could look into repacing the compressor, but that will be very costly. The aircon was a bolt-on for that engine, and is probably best to just accept if its cooling ok, then do nothing, or stop using it.

Heater blows cold air in my escort van


I take it the water level in the expansion tank is ok. You could have a blocked core in the heater. Also the heater could be leaking. You could try flushing the cooling system and checking for leaks and blockages.
