Go back to the basics. Fuel, air, spark and timing. First off the battery has to be above 12 volts to diagnos properly. If the engine cranks over fast and stays cranking, then the battery should be ok for testing. Need to check for fuel pressure at the injector rail, normally 35 to 50 psi. If no fuel pressure, suspect fuel problem, filter , pump, electrical. Check for plugged air filter or restriction in air intake system. Also recommend a compression test , will tell you condition of the piston rings, valve seats and seal and timing of the camshaft. Last is to check for spark at the spark plug to determine an ignition problem. Once you have narrowed down the problem, it will be easier to fix.

if you have battery power on the large terminal at the starter and the same on the smaller wire when someone Is turning the key to start and the starter has a good ground then the starter is bad drawing too much amperage causing the clicking sound.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. Did you check your starter solenoid? It may be that. You need to check your ignition fuse as well. Make sure the battery has a full charge and is holding a proper charge. If the starter isn't getting the full current, it may not work right. You need to make sure that you clean your terminals and post with a wire brush. Inspect all you wires from the battery to the starter. If you have to, test the wires for current with a voltage meter.

My battery has a full charge but the car just clicks when I try to start it. I have a 1998 Ford Escort Lx. If I get a jump from another veghicle the car starts right up. Is this the altenator and where is...


Hi there,

Check the earth strap from the starter motor to the neg battery. Clean up the ends witha wire brush and refit. Try the ignition again. Make sure the other wires going to the starter motor are in good condition.

Stater up (sic) and away you go.

Vote for me when this works, thanks.

1994 Ford Escort, will not start. i have replaced the starter, starter relay, and battery. the car still will not start. please help.


hi,
set the parking brake and make sure its in neutral then
try to bypass the ignition switch by jumping the starter relay under the hood. take the small wire off the relay and use a 2 foot piece of wire to go from the positive battery terminal to the terminal on the starter relay you just unplugged. if it turns over and if its a manual transmission the clutch pedal interlock switch may be busted, on the clutch pedal theres a small switch that senses the pedal is to the floor and it wont start. you can try to bypass that with a simple jumper wire. lastly if neither of those do it then you may have to drop the steering column and put a new ignition switch in it.

does the battery have a full charge to it? If so clean battery terminals and chck battery cable at starter make sure its getting good contact. Make sure battery ground is making good contact at engine. Can you jump the car off? If so take off positive battery terminal while the car is running if the car dies altenaters bad replace it.

2000 ford escort want start. checked fuses and battery . try to turn over but want what can i check. it was running went in house and came back out would not start


Hi

Get a jump start, with good set of leads.

If no joy , follow the Positive lead from the battery to the starter motor, and give it a tap with a small hammer or big spanner, while someone turns the ignition key.

Good Luck !

Remember to give me a FixYa rating....Thanks...John.
