SOURCE: car stalls, oil light comes on, smoke from under hood

sound like the overheating of the engine did some internal damage. ethier an intake or head gasket or maybe even a warped or cracked head. worse case senero would be a cracked block. check the oil see if it looks milky like a grey sludge. most likely it is a head gasket. have a leak down test preformed to confirm. the labor for the head gaskets is 9 hours for 1 or 11.5 for 2. I would replace both and have the mechanic check the heads and block for cracks while he has it apart.

Had a defective brake light switch replaced on a 1999 Escort SE. A friend managed to removed the old one ( had to kind of twist it out) but was too fat to fit under the dash to install new one. I had a...


WEll, if the switch were to be too far down, essentially pressing on the brakes, this can happen, release the brake light switch and allow the pedal to come to it's normal stop, then adjust the switch for that position.

Aside from heat of brakes, other damage very unlikely.

My 1999 ford escort 1.6 has no power,what could be wrong


You will have to have a mechanic check this out, you could have a blown head gasket, they can blow on the inside as well as the outside, the catalytic converter could be stopped up, needs over hauled, fuel filter half clogged off,,,,,,,etc..........Have it hooked up to a computer.

Escort starting problems


Hey Tam_kc71!

The catalytic converter is very notorious in going out on Fords of any year or make - No rotten eggs smell nothing - They will go out. Get that checked and I bet that is your problem. Not that hard to replace yourself.

99 ford escort se gets no power and stutters.


When was the last time the timing belt was replaced on it? The cam timing may be retarded back from belt stretch creating this problem. Another thing to check out is if your catalytic converter may be partially plugged up.
