I Have A 93 Ford Escort Lx Im Having A Problem Accelerating After Driving It For About Ten Minutes I Will Drive It For A Little Then When I Come To A Stop Light It Sputters And Jumps Around And Sometimes Cuts Off. Then When I Try To Accelerate It Goes Really Slow And Begins Picking Up Speed After About A Half A Mile Even With The Pedal To The Floor. Sometime When I Finally Get It To Start Going Faster I Hear A Loud Knocking Noise Then It Stops When It Gets Up To The Speed I Need It To Be, It Also Cuts Off When I Make U Turns Or Sharp Turns In Parking Spaces

By the sounds of it, its like once your car gets hot its starts playing up. You should run a compression test on all ur cylinders..you can get a tester from your local automotive store quite cheap, you just screw it in or shove it in and hold it, start the car and use the throttle cable hinge to rev the car slowly up to redline.. do that while the engine is quite hot though to get a more accurate reading, especially because i think thats when your car starts playing up (when its hot) im just going to say it should be around 140 for all cylinders.. just double check that and cross check your readings with ford. It also could be a ECU problem, once your car is running hot (normal temp) the tuning is wrong.

I've been having a problem with my 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 - occasionally when I come to a full stop while driving - when I go, my car has trouble moving (it's almost as if the engine spins, but not sure)...


Be sure to check the fluid level and top-off if needed. If this continues, get an opinion from a different shop--you may have a plugged filter screen or a fluid pump needing replacement. Ignoring the problem will eventually lead to burned clutch discs and contaminated fluid.

I jsut bought this 93 ford escort lx station wagon


If this is a manual transmission the clutch has burned out, it may need to be replaced, if you do not do your own mechanic work I would suggest that you take it to a good local repair shop and have them check it out. If this is an automatic I would still suggest the same, but the actual problem could be more complex. Hope this helps, let me know.

Jerking while driving


If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.
