    With the brakes your on your own, but the rough idle I had issues with when I bought mine. Try checking the engine mounts, ford tends to install crappy ones, and they might need replaced. Even still, when the car is in drive and it's at a stand-still, my car still vibrates like mad, but I think thats just natural engine vibration...

2000 Ford Escort zx2 runs rough and stalls in reverse


The Ford Escort ZX2, the 2.0 liter is a interference engine,The valve and the piston kissed each other as they met with a broken timing belt,Just to let you know a cam position sensor does not create rough idle, it can stall the engine at a stop sign,but the solution is a valve job, and who ever put the timing belt on after the job should have done a cylinder effeciency test.

as you slow down you have your foot on the brake and that means that the brake booster has a vacuum leak is causing the rough idling and stopping
before you spend a dollar have that checked out by starting the engine ( hand brake on) and if it idles ok , the apply the foot brake and it plays up , it is a brake booster vacuum leak problem
the fix in that case is a replacement brake booster

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.

Looking for the stoplight fuse in a 2002 ford


Go to this site for a free download of the original owners manual. The stop light fuse info is on page 123. If your fuse is ok, check the stop light switch to see if it is the problem.

1999 Escort ZX2 idling rough & not shifting in to overdrive


This could be caused by several things. Bad MAF sensor, TPS could be defective. You need to have the vehicle scanned for codes. You can have this done for no charge at AutoZone.

2002 ford escort zx2 camshaft sensor fit a 99 zx2?


Yes, All the years of the ZX2 utilize the same engine. 1998-2003 are all the same except for ECU programing and the MAF wiring. You should not have a problem.

Brake lights


I have a 98 and had the same problem just today, I found the problem by looking up where the pedal goes to and you will see two switches that the pedal hits when released, its the switch on the left side of the car, you will notice two (well one is prolly missing since the lights wont go off) blueish rubber pads on the brake pedal that hit the switches. since the one that goes to the switch to turn the lights off is gone go out and buy a small plastic body push screw to insert in the hole the old pad was in. there ya go all fixed
