I had a similar problem , check the tube that runs from the PVC fitting located to the right side of the header, then it goes straight back, to the left under the intake, you can't really see most of it but from under the car, mine was messed up had to fix it.

Remove the flexible plastic tube and check for crack(s) or air leaks.

one small hole on the air intake tube will give incorrect amount of air into the engine.

2000 Ford Escort zx2 runs rough and stalls in reverse


The Ford Escort ZX2, the 2.0 liter is a interference engine,The valve and the piston kissed each other as they met with a broken timing belt,Just to let you know a cam position sensor does not create rough idle, it can stall the engine at a stop sign,but the solution is a valve job, and who ever put the timing belt on after the job should have done a cylinder effeciency test.

2003 ford escort zx2, idles rough almost feels like it is going to stall,also has surges, has new serpintine belt,all new filters,have tried carb and fuel injector cleaners.


is the check engine light on? how many miles on the the car? have you checked for vacuum leaks? there is a timing hub on the exhaust cam that sticks and can create an internal vacuum leak. has the timing belt been replaced? it may have jumped time.

Car runs very rough at stops, dies at times but restarts, higher speeds runs great ,smooth. At idle sounds like vaccum leak inside throttlebody also slight manifolds to eng. head air leak, engine shakes...


There is a TSB for the PCV hose. The elbows at both ends get holes in the underside that you can't see unless you remove them and look. This is a very, very common issue on the ZX2. You can get a new PCV hose with both elbows for about $30 from the Ford dealership. You only need to remove the air intake to gain access to the PCV hose to replace it.

My ford escort hesitates and shakes like its about to stall whenever I come to a stop or right before I come to a stop. Is it the fuel line?


depends on which engine you have
seen lots of CMP issues and/or variable cam gear issues (assuming you have the ZTEC engine)

doubtful its fuel lines but could be the fuel filter or the IAC (idle air control motor)

is the check engine light on?

Vibration at idle


Check the motor mounts and ensure they are tight at the mounting pad.
