I have the same problem with my ZX2. First you have to find out what engine you have to find out what emission control system you have. if you have a ERG valve clean it and your throttle body. Throttle body cleaner is under 10 bucks at autozone. If you don't have an ERG valve you might need a new idle air control it is 100 bucks at autozone and on the ztec engine it is bolted underneath the throttle body. you should also clean your mass air flow sensor which is located in your air cleaner right behind your air filter, after all of that check all your vacuum lines for leaks and if that does not fix it you might need a new PCV valve this one is pretty cheap about 5 dollars.

My 2001 Escort, 70k runs great but a definate vibration at the steering wheel. I notice it more when cold andwhen it warms up it is not as bad but still noticable vibration at the steering wheel. ...


That mechanic wasn't lying. I currently own three of them and I know a lot of people that own them and they all have a rough idle. The engines are internally balanced and they don't have dampeners, so you get the engine vibration transferred to the car and that is what you are feeling.

Randem rough idel and fuel/rich mix smell. Hot or cold ? Changed the water temp sensior for the eci and also new eci? 2001 Ford escort


I'm surprised you didn't get an error code, mainly on the spark plug wires. I would try those, they can cause a bunch of trouble, including rough idle, rich burning, everytime my Grand Marquis acted up, it was the spark plug wires. Of course it was also the only thing not covered in the warranty. Check it out.
