    If you punch the gas does it stay running while at the light?

Hi, i recommend replacing the intake manifold gaskets. seems to be a leak or, these gaskets are worn or damaged. this will heel the smell of petrol. i would also change the air filter as well.

Inspect the exhaust manifold gaskets for leaks as well. replace if needed.

My Ford Escort GL 1.6 Jerks whenever i reach 80km/h, the stench of petrol is also high during this time.


When it's in neutral and you hit the gas, does the rpm rise slowly? And if you try to give it too much throttle does it choke and try to die? It sounds like your catalytic converter is partially plugged, or there is some other exhaust restriction. If the check engine light is on, there may be relevant diagnostic codes available, some of the auto parts chains used to read the codes for you for free, but I'm not certain that is still the case.

L have an escort mk6,l have a full tank of petrol,today l notice there is a smell of petrol by the tank


In most cases like this, the petrol tank was over-filled (petrol was "nursed in" and saturated the fuel vapour charcoal canister. It may take some time for the canister to dry enough and rid the apparent fuel vapour smell. If not, you may want to consider changing the charcoal canister.

You also may want to check for leaks or loose fittings from the filler nozzle to the tank as well.

I hope this helps! :)

1994 Ford Escort dies at stops


I had the same problem a year ago. I problem was that the intake manifold gasket had a small hole and it was causing the computer to constantly change the air to fuel ratio. The constant changing cause the engine to die at stops.

Central locking


Had the same problem, found that the intake manifold was leaking. Found it by letting the car idle and spraying WD40 around the manifold where it attached to head for each cylinder. If engine idle picks up, you found your leak.
