Hi Janabona To diagnose this problem I would need much more information from you. Firstly, has the problem gotton worse over a period of time or did the problem appear quickly - say after a particular fuel stop? Is the problem the same during cold, warm-up and normal engine temperture? Has the problem occurred immediately after a service or repair? With this additional information I'm confident that I can point you in the right direction in terms of the problem. Dave

It sounds like you are desperately in need of a timing belt.

My 97 ford escort runs fine on 0 solpe roadr. but when I drive uphill it hesitated on acceleration.


It sounds like low fuel pressure to me. Possibly caused by a clogged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump (or both). I would try changing the fuel filter first.
