Question about 1993 Ford Escort 4 Door
We tried to fix the firing order but it is not working. i was told to my 1993 ford escort that that firing order is 1-4-3-2 but that is still not working. and now the car wont start. in the beginning the car just stalled every time we stopped at a light or stop sign. what might the problem be?
Someone told you wrong. The firing order is 1-3-4-2
That is for both the 1.8 Liter engine, and the 1.9 Liter engine.
If you have the 1.8 Liter engine with the distributor:
Looking at a top view, (Looking straight down from the top), view the mounting screws for the distributor cap. View the screws in a straight line, top to bottom. The adjustment to turn the distributor is on the left. The connection for the wiring harness is on the right.
Number 1 spark plug tower is on top. It is in-between the upper mounting screw, and the connection for the wiring harness.
Rotation for the distributor is Counterclockwise. To the left. 1-3-4-2
Viewing the Escort from the front, looking at the windshield. Number 1 spark plug is all the way to the right. The distributor is on the left.
Right to left it is 1-2-3-4.
To diagnose why your car won't stay running, is tough without more information. Could be something as simple, as needing a tune-up real bad.
Start with the Fuel System, then go to the Engine Electrical System. If you get your car running again, and find more information, how about coming back here, and asking again?
Post another question with perhaps a little more info?
