Check engine oil for correct level. In a sharp turn, oil will slosh causing a low oil fault, disabling ignition. This engine has a low oil sensor in the oil pan. Check oil often.

1999 for escort zx2 stulls when im at a stop light

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

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.

99 ford escort zx2 will turn over but not start p1000 code

P1000 just means drive cycle not complete for emissions testing.

Listen for your fuel pump to run, that might be the issue. If the engine sounds like it is turning over faster than normal, your timing belt is broken.

1999 ford escort i have a fuel pressure problem no pressure car off at fuel rail low pressure ignition on car misses when excelerating

your fuel pump only runs for 2 seconds with the key on, unless it is running. Safety reasons. It runs during starting all the time, and all the time if engine is running.
check fuel pump relay in driver kick panel and inertia switch reset in trunk. Se owner manual for info.
