Question about 2000 Ford Escort
The oil is not milky. The antifreeze is good and oil is as it should be. My problem last about 60-120 sec before my car died and would no longer starte. O yeah one more big thing there was a tapping sound, started off slow then gained speed all in the same time frame.
Gonna guess that the timing belt slipped or broke due to low oil pressure up top..what was the odor..burnt oil. burnt antifreeze or burnt rubber..or did it burn your nose like an electrical fire..repost please

4.9 litre ?? you having a laugh its a 10ton truck engine not a pick up -global warming machine,remove the pump/sender unit and check the gauze filter also look inside tank for a something floating around ,i think the idles is not a related problem to the vehicle losing power but their is a possibility you could have a problem with the little vac operated thing on the fuel injector line that allows the fuel through only when the engine is running

Thats normal for it to come on when it stalls.You may have a intermitent fault.I would have it scaned to see if it is holding any codes.I have seen this type of problem with other ford products and thay don't always set a code.that makes it a little tougher to find.Mass air flow sensor may be bad or dirty,thay have spray cleaner at your local auto parts store to clean them with.Fuel pressure may be low too.Autozone rents fuel pressure testers,if you don't feel comfortable doing this have your local mechanic do it for you.I forgot autozone will scan your car for free.Hope this helps.any more questions just ask and i'll try to help.Thank You for using fixya......iluv2fish........Ray.......
