Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

97 ford escort At first my car would idle weird upon starting, and it would eventually "work itself out" after starting. And I thought it had to do with the cold weather and maybe there was water in the gas line. So I have been putting isoHeet in when I get gas. But it still idles iradically only every once in awhile and it's been warm and cold out. And sometimes when I start it and it idles weird I turn the car off and back on and it's normal.

SOURCE: Car starts poorly during cold mornings. The idle

Sounds like a cold start valve (which is actually an additional injector in the intake to assist in cold starting) If you can get it to your local prts store while the light is on they will read the codes for free and tell you what the car thinks is amiss.

What is the problem with: Frozen weather: 97 Ford Escort overflow boiling, there is coolant/antifreeze in radiator and the car started idling VERY fast when at a stop.


Ouch, Worst case sounds like if bubbling you have a head gasket problem. OR a belt broken, so the water pump is not working, or antifreeze mixture is not correct and is like "slush" instead of fluid and cannot cool properly, boiling somewhere in the engine. Idle change sounds like the broken belt or belts problem. Hopefully that all it is. Check and fix soon.

97 Ford Escort 2.0 - Starting issues. It has a


regardless if its a factory or aftermarket alarm, the single click sound is an indication that the starter solenoid is failing

with the solenoid mounted on the starter, about the only thing the shop could have did wrong is not clean off the surfaces where the start mounts and that is assuming you have oil leaks under the vehicle and/or they even removed the starter.

honestly, it just sounds like bad luck with a failing starter solenoid
