Hi, I have a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 with a service engine soon light on and it won't shift into overdrive... Any suggestions? Thanks!!!

I would got to autozone or advance auto parts and have the codes read, they will do it for free, it will give you an idea of where to start looking, could be as simple as just changing a sensor.

Service engine soon light comes on i just put new spark plugs on the car shakes some when it idles my pcv valve wasnt on tight you could pull it right out so i sealed it down with some sealent and i need a...

Well, I don't think that a pcv valve alone would cause this problem, but you can try to get it back to the way it should.

4 cylinder cars are known to shake from GM and even Ford.

But, if the Service Engine Soon light comes on, have Autozone or Advance or another firm scan the codes that are in the computer's memory.

Often, this can easily lead to a known solution.

Good luck.

I have 1998 ford escort se, when i drive it for more then hour the service engine soon lights come on... I replaced the fuel filter. and it is back on again... HELP

Service engine light is for soooo many issues that your engine might find is wrong w/it... you should take it to an Electric mechanic so that he can check w/a computer whats EXACTLY wrong w/it... ask arround for an honest one too, that always helps =)
