If they weren't the right plugs they may have been too long and a piston may have hit it.if thats the case it may be cheaper to replace the engine. look at the wrong plugs that u took out, if they are damaged there is a good chance you have don internal engine damage

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.

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.

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

How do i get the spark plug covers off on a ford escort 1600 finesse estate so that i can change or clean the plugs


Just pull them off, no special tools, grip firmly and yank, be gentle but stern, if they feel "stuck" jiggle it as you pull.
