Question about 1999 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Cannot start My ford 1999 Ford escort was working fine Sunday but on Tuesday afternoon the engine would not start. Thinking it was the battery, I utilized jumper cables but even after 15 min it still would not start. The ''check engine'' light remains illuminated. when I attempted to start it again, it did not even make a sound. I replaced the battery and the alt this past summer. Please help me out here before I dump more and more money into this car.

Take it back to the dealer. It should be under warranty. Also have them check all of the recalls if any.

Sounds like you make have a vacumn leak on one of the rubber vacumn lines that attach to the intake manifold. Check all of these lines and look for cracks, pinholes and lines that have colapsed.

PVC valve is not metering air correctly, it will appear ok shaking it but looses it ability to maintain proper position causing a medium to gross vacuum leak.
