1987 escort doesnt shift untill 3000 rpm


Depending on what gearing setup the car was originally put on, most cars that I have owned that were automatic shifted between 3000 and 4000 RPM. My 97 Ford Escort ZX2 needed to shift around 2000 RPm from 1st into 2nd, but it was a manula which allows you to feel the point of shift alot better. maybe have your onboard computer checked and tranny serviced.

1998 zx2 automatic trans won't shift past 2'nd gear


Governor may be stuck. a solenoid may be stuck open, or stuck closed, or the transmission throttle cable has come undone at one end or the other or has come loose at the ajustment point.

Is the fluid level correct? Is the tranmission fluid correct? (foaming issue) Does the fluid smell burned significantly?

Will it shift if you let up on the accelerator for an instant and then step on it again? If it will shift while doing that, add some seal conditioner as you have a leaking servo seal or clutch apply seal. If that does not correct it after a period of time, the only real fix will be to pull the transmission and do a rebuild.

I have an escort zx2-2001 engine that it takes me two tries to start especially when on hills. When it does start there is alot of raw fuel smell emiited from the exhaust. Ive changed the fuel filter,...


If you're smelling unburnt gasoline, then it sounds like you're not getting fire to all cylinders. Not sure if your car has coil paks or distributor, but which ever it has, I would check to make sure all cylinders are firing. You can do this by starting the engine and pulling the wires off the coil paks/distributor one at a time. Listen and watch for any change or variation in the running of the motor. If it trys to die out then that plug is getting fire. If nothing changes in the way the motor runs, then it's a good possibility that that cylinder isn't firing. Hope this helps.
