SOURCE: Ford Escort 1998 fuel pump not working.

good old ford lol, try looking at the crank sensor its located at the front of the engine tucked in right hand side of exhaust manifold and gearbox, two pin plug, i have also known these to have no end of faults with the fusebox.
easy to remove, and solder the connections inside they all suffer eventually, if your not to handy with cars i recommend taking to a auto electrician, easy if you know how. Good luck Davelee

1.9L Engine

CAUTION Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the air intake tube, crankcase breather and PCV hose.
  4. Remove the ignition coil pack and bracket.
  5. Remove the upper radiator hose.
  6. Remove the ignition coil pack bracket.
  7. Unfasten the heater hose inlet tube bracket bolt and remove the heater hose inlet tube from the thermostat housing.
  8. Remove the three thermostat housing attaching bolts, then remove the thermostat housing and gasket.

No sparks on 95 ford escort gt 1.8


If it is in fact a 1995 Escort GT, congratulations. The 1991-1996 Ford Escort GT is powered by a 1.8L DOHC Mazda engine, the same engine is also found in the, 1991-1995 Ford Escort LXE, 1990-99 Mazda Protege, 1991-95 Mercury Tracer LTS and 1994-97 Kia Sephia GS. The engine is over-built - I have a 1995 Escort GT in my garage with over 200,000 miles on it. I recently had the engine out of the car to replace the freeze plugs and I can tell you the following - it doesn't have an EGR valve but it does have a mounting pad on the driver's side of the lower plenum that was cast but never machined for one, it's Vane Air Flow like on an RX-7 or Protege not MAS, and the crank angle sensor is contained in the distributor - it's not part of the harmonic balancer. The PCV valve is mounted on the back of the the valve cover on the passenger side and the hose goes to the middle of the upper plenum not to the non-existent EGR valve. And absolutely none of this is helping you get your car started.

You need to troubleshoot this like a Mazda product, not a Ford since the only Ford parts in the engine bay are the sheet metal and fuel line connectors. There's no quick or easy answer to what's going on, but I would recommend getting a Haynes/Chilton's manual or at least reference one for their trouble-shooting guides before throwing dollars at a problem like this since it can be anything from fouled plugs to the ECU.

Start at the spark plugs and work backward, it's cheaper. Pull one of the plug wires off of a spark plug and have someone turn the engine over while you check for spark by holding the plug wire close to the engine. If you get a spark, then check check the plugs - oil fouled, gapped correctly, etc. If you don't get a spark, check distributor cap and rotor along with plug wires. It just keeps going, that's why you really should get a repair manual of some sort so you can do it in an orderly fashion.

2000 ford escort zx2 wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Spark Plug Wiring Diagram For 1994 escort


Firing order is 1-3-4-2
Remove no 1 cylinder sparkplug(furthest from the transmission). Block the plug hole with your hand. Rotate the engine with a wrench until you feel pressure under your hand. No 1 cylinder is now on compression stroke.
Now get the engine on TDC(Line up notch on the crank pulley with the timing pointer). Remove the distributor cap. The rotor arm will be pointing at no 1 cylinder plug wire. Moving clockwise connect the wires.

1998 Ford Escort ZX2 lost power/shakes


The fuel filter should be replaced every 2 years. It is easy to do since it is on the firewall. You don't even have to get under the car. Low fuel pressure can cause the issues you described. A dirty air filter can do this as well as bad spark plug wires. These cars are picky about the type of spark plugs you use as well. None of the gimming (+2, +4, splitfire) plugs should be used. I've had best luck with Motorcraft and Autolite plugs.

We replaced the fuel pump in my 1994 ford escort and it still just turns over but will not start


disconnect the fuel line from the rail and turn the ignition on to see if it is indeed pumping fuel, if it squirts then the pump is working, if not then there may be an electrical fault to the pump {check fuses and relay} there may also be a blockage, check/repalce fuel filter.
remove a spark plug lead and place it near a metalic part of the engine, crank the engine and take note to see if there is a spark shooting from it while you crank.
lastly you will need to tow it to a mechanic to put the code machine on it and he may be able to tell you where the fault is. I hope this guide helps you. Good luck

Car will not crank sometimes unless you turn the key many times.


Check battery connections. Sometimes a weak connection will fail under very high loads like starting.
