I have the same car,,i think your automatic transmission is slipping,(check fluid),or if its a manual transmission,then your clutch is worn out.(replace)

Ford Escort - 1997 car does not accelerate up hills. it revs if i am careful on flat up to 50mph but not past that? need to know what it possibly is and how it might cost asap? thanks


Look into exhaust, clogged cat conv. could cause that. Best way to test is a vaccum test on the intake. When exhaust is restricted the vaccum should go to 0 at the intake manifold while accelerating.

There's many reasons this can happen, but start simple. Fuel pump may be failing. Usually under load they can not supply the fuel the engine is demanding. (Up hill acceleration is a classic example). change the fuel filter first, if that doesn't not correct the problem, test fuel system pressure. (:

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

When going up hills is the engine bucking and missing? Also for the hard start warm problem, check the fuel pressure regulator for leaks into the vac line.

Losing power in accelation


Fuel filter is probably clogging up (it's common), which restricts fuel flow and makes it hard to make the needed power for acceleration or other high-load situations like climbing hills. Change it and you'll probably be fine.
