Sounds like a weak battery, have the battery tested, if it gives out a low voltage or other faulty behaviour the computer will not run right, making the guages mess up and the engine run badly. Replace it if it is "weak" when tested. should solve your problem!

Stalling ford escort


Have you replaced the engine oil recently? If so, then the problem should be somewhere in the fuel supply (fuel filter, injectors) or the exhaust system (o2 sensor).

1997 Ford Escort stalling when going 35 mph or less.


You may need to be looking at your Torque Converter being in LOCK UP and forcing it to stall because the Transmission is not letting go of the Motor...

You may also have a Plugged CAT CONVERTER

Test the Temp BEFORE and AFTER.. There should be an INCREASE of at least 100 degrees on the BACK from the Front

My car starts up n run for thirty seconds then stalls. it stalls also when i press on the gas pedel.


Shortage of fuel is your problem. Please make sure that enough fuel is reaching the injectors/cylinders . And while you are at it please clean the air filters as well.

Unfortunatly you have aproblem with either the dash control module or the dash itself which will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

1993 Ford Escort 1.9L Auto Randomly Stalls


I don't have the solution, but I have the same exact problem on my 1991 Escort 1.9L with auto with 120K miles. I replaced the IAC with no difference. In fact I unplugged it, and still had the random stalling. Also disconnected the EGR vacuum line...still stalled randomly. After it stalls it always starts right back up again. Sometimes it will act as if it's going to stall, but comes back to normal idle. Park or Drive makes no difference. Acceleration and all normal driving is fine. The next thing I was going to try is hooking up a timing light and watch to see if the timing light stops flashing as it's stalling, and/or hooking up a fuel pressure gauge somehow, to the fuel rail, to see if the pressure drops when stalling....to figure out if its ignition or fuel related.

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

P Reg keeps stalling


First, check for water in the fuel(a common problem with pwcs). Could also be a faulty pcm or stator, does this model have a fault light?
