1998 ford escort will not start no spark at spark plug 1998 ford escort


hi you dont say which engine you have so will asume you have the twin cam zetec engine as it is the most prolific first you need to check your cambelt is ok as cambelt failures are all too common on this engine ,as you open the bonnet the upper cam cover is on the left held by two small bolts either 10 or 8 mm cant recall which undo these and remove cover and check condition of your belt
does it look loose are there any missing teeth off the belt if everything is ok here check the plug wires for resistance with a test meter set on ohms check either end with the probes for any high resistance change them if they do good luck

Hi i have a 1998 ford escort zetec i have power all over the car but not to the starter or at least it doesnt turn when i turn it on


Your most likely problem is your neutral safety switch. This can be a bad switch or worn linkage. You can jumper the starter from the hot cable to the starting lug if the starter turns then that pretty much comfirms it's the nuetral safety switch.
If your problem with the nuetral safety switch is caused by the linkage you may be able to adjust the linkage. If there is an adjustment for your car it should be on the steering column under the hood or at the linkage pivit point on the frame below the steering column.

What do i have to do to swap a inertia starter motor for a pre-engaged starter motor on my ford mk2 escort


A lot of work !!!
The engine or gearbox will removing.
You will need to find a pre-engaged starter ring (not sure that one was produced)
Take off flywheel and change over ring gears.. then reassemble.
Why do you want to change it ?
