Its not common but you may have water in your gas. You will need to check engine for both fuel and spark. If the car will start then die off a short squirt of ether then it would be a fuel problem. Then you'll need to find out if it to do with the fuel or the fuel system.

I was driving home from work when my 1999 escort started to lose power and the low fuel light came on. It felt like it was going to die but then the power kicked in and I was able to get home but the low...


Check for a plugged fuel filter,after you check the fuel cap is on correctly. If that's not the problem,it could be the fuel pump. You can get the fuel pressure read at the rail by any reputable shop. don-ohio

I have a 1999 Ford Escort Wagon. The gas tank will fill about 3/4 full and then the gas hose shut down. It then takes about ten minutes to get the rest of the gas into the tank. What is the problem?


on the wagon thay made the vent breather for tank when filling to long unfortunitly their nothing you can do other than feed it really slow backing the pump hose off just alittle but not always affective.

1998 ford escort has full power , stalled at intersection and now wont start, any ideas


might have a fuel filter problem or a fuel pump problem meaning the filter might be clogged or the fuel pump in the gas tank is not pumping check ur fuse box there is a fuse for the fuel pump in there if it if blown replace and then turn car over again. if its ok then it still could be a fuel pump problem check the fuel filter located by the gas tank under the car or take to a local mechanic if u do not want to do it ur self. fuel filter is easy to change very easy.a fuel pump on most cars the gas tank as to be dropped.

I think fuel pump went out how can i check it? we just put gas and the car died out went to start it and it just cranks over and over but wont start


have someone turn the key but do not try to start. Also, listen by the gas tank for a 2-3 second hum. IF you hear nothing then check your fuses. If fuses are good your pump is bad. Pump is inside tank and will require removing the tank. I have done this before and it is a 4-5 hour job on a truck, maybe a little longer on a car.

99 ford escort zx2 wont start it died seemed like it was outta gas but has gas


When you turn the key to the ON position, you should hear the whirring of the fuel pump working. If you don't hear anything it may be your fuel pump. It only lasts a few seconds but that sound is evidence that your fuel pump is delivering fuel. If it is good, then check your fuel filter.

I have a 1999 ZX2 ford escort that starts, but dies in seconds


It is was a gas filter problem blocking gas flowing from the pump. What happening was that when it was trying to **** the last drop of gas into the engine it really disturbed dirts inside the fuel filter and made it clogged at fine mesh. And also make sure give sometime for gas delivered into the fuel line it since it was empty when you change the fuel filter. It means you have to keep starting for a while so gas can go up to the fuel distributor then injectors.

Ford Escort 1999 just died


The altenator and battery can be tested for free on most part stores. You can buy a rebuild kit cheaper than a new or rebuilt alteanator.

Timing belt? fuel filter?


Running the tank low (below 1/4) on fuel ruins the fuel pump, it uses tthe gas around it to cool it down, most likely you will need a new fuel pump.
