Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Jimbo, appreciate the feedback, but when I put it in neutral it revs fine. I have to drive with 2 feet so it doesn't die out when in gear. The converter on this car has a guard over it. Can you put a hole it the converter? would it be safe? or loud? Long time ago when i was a kid i heard about people doing stuff like that, but the darn fuel pump is 200.00 bucks new and if it is the converter i don't want to buy the pump. How can you tell if the converter is clogged?
If it is the converter you would hear a slight popping noise from the exhaust. Before punching holes I would disonnect exhaust before the converter and see if it runs any better.
