There are adjusters on the front corners of the body at the hood corners, adjust them up about a full turn and tighten the lock nut. See how that works for you. Or, loosen the bolts on the latch and try to lower it. tighten it down and dee if that works for you. In adjusting either one, check tthe body lines so the durfaces are even. Good luck.-Ned-

Check hood latch cable if not stuck. vibration while running may be due to front wheel unbalance or out of round. have tires checked at tire store.

My 2001 Escort, 70k runs great but a definate vibration at the steering wheel. I notice it more when cold andwhen it warms up it is not as bad but still noticable vibration at the steering wheel. ...


That mechanic wasn't lying. I currently own three of them and I know a lot of people that own them and they all have a rough idle. The engines are internally balanced and they don't have dampeners, so you get the engine vibration transferred to the car and that is what you are feeling.

I have a 99 Ford escort with the check engine light on. The diagnostic says it is running lean. I changed EGR Valve sensor and front O2 Sensor. Any advice on what to try next?


Lean condition causes go from a clogged fuel filter to a vacuum leak to a weak fuel pump.Lean means there is not enough fuel for the combustion chambers.check these items:)
