Question about 1991 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Where is the starter located on a 1997 ford escort

My escort makes a terrible winding noise when I try to start it. The battery is fine and I can pop the clutch to start it. I am nearly positive it is the starter-just not sure where it is.

Your starter is located on the top of the transmissions bell housing on the firewall side. It is easily accessed under the vehicle, or by removing the battery and battery tray.

Click on the link.
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through clutch switch, I haven't looked up info on your clutch switch. The starter motor is grounded through engine block. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is out of gear and parking brake is set.
You can check the starter itself, take it off, lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from battery to starter motor, at the least, it should kick out the drive gear and spin.

1994 ford escort won't turnover, the fuel shutoff light comes on when you press the clutch. can push start and will run


soundsa like the starter or the fender mounted solioid is malfunctioning. Does anytrhing clich as you turn the key to start? If theirs no click at all you might look and the starter relay ( solioid) it's located near the battery and it has the positive battery cable connected to it. Also notice the most common no start is the battery cables aren't making good connection to the battery or the battry is too low as it may be low on charge. Have the battry tested or if handy to do see if it starts normally with jumper cables connected to a running car. If it starts just fine the battery or the charging system needs to be looked into. it it tris to start and crnks slowly and makes bad noises the starter is likly bad. If it had been starting just fine and this happened all the sudden the cables connected to the battery or the battery failing are the most likly.
