Question about 1993 Ford Escort 4 Door

1 Answer

93 Escort "I have a little 4 door 93 Escort with 180k. Drives great but recently it started vibrating when I get above about 55mph. Had it checked by several shops and eliminated wheels and front end problems. I took it up to 75mph several times and put it in neutral and it ran smooth. Could it be the torque converter or transmission even though the computer check showed they were ok?? The transmission is automatic.

How do I shut off the door ajar/dome light buzzer on my "93 Ford Escort

you have to undo the instrument cluster, the buzzer is straight behind. you need a phillips screwdriver to undo the screws above the speedo ( 2 of them) pull the trim straight out, the lower side is with clamps. 4 phillips for the instruments, then grab behind to catch the speedo cable, squeeze it at its bigger ends and pull it off. Turn lights on, open the door and you know where the fellow is. pull the plug , done. If it is your first time, good luck with the speedo cable.

I have a 93 ford escort. 1.9. I recently had the timing belt replaced and had a really bad oil leak repaired. the car recently started trying to stall on the interstate (bucking/stumbling). I have replaced...

If it is not turning the check engine light on it won't be a sensor causing it.
So you need to go back to basics,Have you replaced the fuel filter lately?
it also sounds like some moisture in the fuel system,beyond that check plugs and coil.

93 f0rd escort and then statrs missing

Check all the vacuum hoses under the hood for leaks, replacing any that look dry or brittle. A doctor's stethoscope can hear the hissing of a leaking hose better than the unaided ear. I have had the EGR hose, on the right side of the engine, passing over the valve cover from front to back, work loose from its rubber fitting at the front of the engine.
Check that the spark plugs are gapped correctly and screwed all the way in when the engine is cold. If your spark plugs or wires are old, consider replacing them.
Cleaning the Mass Airflow (MAF) sensor with a spay cleaner (sold at car stores) can help.

Stalls when idling!

sounds like the idle is set a little to low or bad fuel filter

Is the engine light on? If not, It'probly time for an idle air control valve. Also check the motor mounts. Put the car in drive, hold the brake and give it some gas. Do the same thing in reverse. If the motor moves more than a few inches, you may have a broke motor mount.(you watch the motor, let a friend work the gas)

I jsut bought this 93 ford escort lx station wagon

If this is a manual transmission the clutch has burned out, it may need to be replaced, if you do not do your own mechanic work I would suggest that you take it to a good local repair shop and have them check it out. If this is an automatic I would still suggest the same, but the actual problem could be more complex. Hope this helps, let me know.
