Question about Ford Escort
When my escort is cold it runs fine but after it warms up it acts like it is starving for gas so i have to feather the gas pedal sometimes just to make it up a hill! Also i just replaced the one fuel filtewr under the hood was wondering if there is another one!
Could be several things. The engine has a cold start routine which enrichens the fuel mix and sets the timing for cold starts. The problem you have is after the cold start routine kicks out.
Mainly this can be due to a loss due to an intake manifold gasket leak or if there are stuck manifold runners. Manifold runners are not on every engine, but the idea is that each intake has 2 chambers and one is leaner than the other. So your engine may be running too lean because the runners are not switching properly. Sometimes the activating rods fall off because plastic clips become brittle and break.
Do a look up for these parts while identifying the engine size and Year. The search may show you photos or even videos of how to fix this.
