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

Car won't start got spark and gas its sounds like timing off but timing belt looks good

Just cause the belt looks good doesn't mean the timing didn't jump. Could be a sensor. Did you have a service engine soon light or check engine light? Could be a weak coil and still have spark. Do you have a fuel shutoff switch/cable under kick panel or in trunk? May be that also.

Have you checked compression? Ford 2.0L engines are bad about dropping exhaust valve seats. Also are you sure your valve timing is correct? Possible timing belt problem.

Frozen gas line in car

FYI, gasoline will NOT freeze. Moisture/water will. If you live in Very cold area, you may want to get some "heet" at the Auto Parts store, and add to the gas. It comes in 2 varities. Buy the RED bottle.

Hi I have a 1996 ford escort 1.4i which jerks as if it is running on 3 cylinders and then comes right if I which off the engine during travel. This is an intermittend problem. It days for a day properly...

first try to put some STP gas treatment in with a full tank of gas you may also have a bad platium gasket try these websites and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your escort wish you the best of luck
