Check to see if the timing belt broke but do not turn the engine with the key you might bend valves if you have a distributor turn the lower harmonic balancer a little looking to see if the rotor moves that is under the cap if it don't move you broke a timing belt .

My 1998 for escort wierd problem with idling


When a crankshaft sensor has failed or is failing, certain timing problems will arise in engine function. The engine may start normally in some cases, but will cut off after a few minutes (or seconds) of operation. More than likely the engine will be unable to start at all. Since the crankshaft sensor is responsible for engine timing, the driver may experience engine backfire or irregular rpm function, if the vehicleicon1.png starts at all.

1996 ford escort died when i was driving right after i went over a small pot hole and will not start. It was low on gas..could iy be the fuel filter


Ford vehicles are equipped with a fuel pump cut off switch that will shut power to the fuel pump in the event of a collision. By hitting the pothole, there was probably enough "force" making the switch mistakenly shut off the fuel pump. The switch should be located in the trunk either on the left or right side. Locate the switch and press the reset button. If it clicks when pressed, then the switch was activated. Try starting the car. If it starts, then that was the problem. I own a 1997 Ford Escort and the same thing happened to me...the pothole caused enough "force" thereby the switch took it as an impact. I hope this helps you out.

Clicking sound in front left wheel well, almost like something is loose even though there isn't that i can see. it is more when i am on hill and roads with alot of turns. i do have a paper route and thats...


It sounds like a CV joint.
Have a look at the back of your front hubs , there will be a rubber boot around the drive axle CV joint . Usually the boot will be split if the CV is worn out.
Test by reversing in a circle on full steering lock, if the CV is worn out it will make a loud clicking sound.

My 1998 Ford Escort will not turnover eventhough it sounds like it wants to start.


Most times, Ford has a defective ignition switch. What happens is the metal tabs straighten out making the internal parts loose contact. I'd check there first. (Not the key side/the back side- with wires)
