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.

Both turn signals on my 1998 Ford Escort zx2 don't flash.


The 98 Escort is actually a Mazda 323 with Ford trim. It uses a solid state flasher relay for both turn signals and hazard lights.
The relay is behind the speedometer. My guess is the relay has died.
You can look it up online or check with your local auto parts store to get a visual.

I have a 1998 ford escort zx2 and the back left


If you can still find a replacement left light lens of your 1998 ford escort zx2, you can replace it, of course. Just
take off the mounting screw of the lens, and take off the
defective lens. Then, you can mount the replacement.
