Question about 1995 Ford Escort

No Spark to plygs

Hey Guys,
I have a 1995 ford escort and I was driving home when it just missed out and then died I pulled over to try to start it and it would not start. we checked and it was not getting a spark at the spark plugs. So I changed the Battery(it was very old and weak anyway) the coil pack, spark plugs and wires while I was at it. Also I put in a new main fuse. I still have no spark to the plugs. Does any one know what else it could be that is causing the problems.
Thanks

Sounds like your cam sensor or timing belt. These cars can get touchy about their timing belt. Check to see if it is intact.

I bought a used 1995 for escort. it has a miss an is getting worse. i changed the spark plugs. i took the spark plug wires off one at a time. 3 of them made the miss worse and 1 did nothing. it's


Not without more testing.
It could be a fuel problem or something mechanical like a valve.
You would do a compression test next to verify all 4 cylinders have normal compression.
If they do, and that 4th plug wire was providing spark to the plug, I would expect you to find something going on with the injector.

My car runs for three seconds then dies


Its' a module problem. The computer also should be diagnosing a trouble code. The main computer turns over control to the module within 5 seconds of a startup. Check your connectors for corrosion.

Autozone or Oreillys may be able to test the module to verify this for you. Another system that works like yours is the Cold Start circuit. The TPS takes over after the Cold Start circuit stops. The TPS is the throttle control or throttle position sensor. The TPS regulates both fuel and spark. Good Luck on your repair.
