Question about 1992 Ford Escort 4 Door

Car stopped suddenly and won't start

1992 ford escort (1.9) just stopped and won't start. Up till then it was running great. The fuel pump is working up to the injectors. I was told it could be the fuel regulator. Spark is good, so that isn't the problem.

    also check that catalytic converter,the easiest way to test this is to remove the oxygen sensor before the converter and see if the car starts. test this and get back to me i'll try to help with more tests Thanks Ray

cut off switch could still be bad. First my sure gas is getting to the engine....if so then this indicates that fuel system is working properly. Sounds like car may not be firering. Things that could cause this is coil bad, ingnition modual failed or maybe pickup coil."sensor maybe some where..timing out which would indicate timing belt or chain or gears are broke......Keep in mind these are just some things that could cause your problem and gives you ideal what to look for........hope this info helps and good luck....Please rate this post and if you need more help then fill free to contact me and we will try to get ya back on the road......

I have a Ford Escort 1992 RS2000 Mk 5, does anyone know how the fuel pump works please ?

Fuel pump runs for 2 seconds when key is turned on when the engine starts it continues to keep pressure at 30 PSI while engine is running, If you are going up hill the fuel regulator will kick in increasing fuel rail pressure to 60 PSI If the Fuel Pump does not detect the engine running by th cam shaft or crank shaft sensor the pump will not run. There is a fuel sock on the pump and a fuel filter as well. If it's not running most likely the Fuel Pump Is bad, The ethanol in the fuel eats the old pumps up and destroys the filter. So if you have not replaced the filter or the fuel sock then it's time to do so now. If you want more information let me know and I will give you more.

Fuel problem

Sounds more like tuning problem. Clean or replace plugs, gapping them to specs and see how that works for you.

Engine shuts off after heating up. after it cools off it restarts and runs for a little while then cuts off again. car is a 95 ford escort wagon 4 cyl. replaced the fuel pump 1 week ago.possibly a fuel...

Dont think its a relay ,this a hands on thingy so its difficult to advise.When it stops check for spark with an old plug shoved in a lead as it could be electrical,if it sparks ok then look on injection system for a faulty sensor,as the electrical resistance can change with heat.
