    My escort quit suddenly while I was driving. I had just slowed down and turned. It lost power and then the motor died and would not start. I changed the fuel filter, the fuel pump seems to be working, gas is getting to the new filter, the wires are firing, but it won't start, even after I sprayed starter fluid into it. Maybe the timing belt went out? I heard they are rubber. The retaining clips on the fuel filter were rotten, and when I disconnected the bottom line on the old filter no gas came out until I took the filter all the way off, so I thought the filter was the problem, but... any ideas? I guess I'll check the timing belt tomorrow and check back.

Changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no


if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck

I have a 99 Ford escort zx2 and the enigne quit while is was driv


This is a common problem for a crankshaft sensor failure. When it fails, the engine can not start since the ECM doesn't know the proper position of the crankshaft to give ignition according to TDC (top dead Center). Therefore it doesn't matter how strong your battery is, it won't fire. The fire is only happens when an ignition happens at the highest compression point when a piston is at top and this is reported by the crankshaft sensor. Have this checked out and replaced. Good luck.

99 ford taurus will not start


buy a can of carburator cleaner, spray into duct area while cranking engine. Does engine try to start(fire)? If so, find inertia switch (button in trunk). 'reset button just by pushing it. If this switch was triped, fuel injectors or fuel pump will not operaate. If spraying carb cleaner does not help starting then fuel pressure should be checked to rule out fuel delevery problem. AS a precaution, make sure your useing the correct key(original). Security problems also shut off fuel.
