Both turn signals on my 1998 Ford Escort zx2 don't flash.


The 98 Escort is actually a Mazda 323 with Ford trim. It uses a solid state flasher relay for both turn signals and hazard lights.
The relay is behind the speedometer. My guess is the relay has died.
You can look it up online or check with your local auto parts store to get a visual.

My battery light came on then my power steering went out. any ideas on what the problem is or how to fix it?


When the battery dies and the engine shuts down, the power steering will stop working. I would have the battery tested first, if the battery tests ok, then the cause may be the alternator is not charging the battery causing the vehicle to run on what charge is left in the battery till it dies. I would have both of those checked out by your local Auto Zone, or local Auto parts store, usually they will do this free of charge.

Hope this helps...

98 FORD ESCORT ZX2 DIES WHEN YOU STOP AND HAS LOST SOME POWER


The car could probably use a tune-up. Also, check both ends of the PCV line for soft/deteriorated elbows as a vacuum leak here would cause the car to die at idle.

I have a 1999 ZX2 ford escort that starts, but dies in seconds


It is was a gas filter problem blocking gas flowing from the pump. What happening was that when it was trying to **** the last drop of gas into the engine it really disturbed dirts inside the fuel filter and made it clogged at fine mesh. And also make sure give sometime for gas delivered into the fuel line it since it was empty when you change the fuel filter. It means you have to keep starting for a while so gas can go up to the fuel distributor then injectors.
