Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
THATS TRUE A THROTTLE BODY SERVICE RIGHT THERE AT THE THROTTLE PLATE WILL HELP ALOT.
IF THAT DOESNT DO IT THEN YOU NEED TO LOOK AT BOTTOM OF THE INTAKE SYSTEM FROM THE DRIVERS SIDE OF THE CAR LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE ENGINE THERE IS A VERY LARGE VACCUM LINE AND IT GOES FROM THE BACK OF THE ENGINE AROUND TO THE FRONT SIDE UNDER THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING.AND RIGHT ON TOP OF THE PCV VALVE .BOTH OF THOSE RUBBER ELBOWS ARE ROTTON AND HEAT BURT AND HAVE CRACKS AND HOLES IN THEM.
YOU CAN ONLY GET THEM AT THE DEALER AND COST 30 DOLLARS.YOU CAN ONLY GET THE WHOLE HOSE WITH THE ELBOWS ON IT ALLREADY.YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE NEW ELBOW ON THE PCV SIDE TO INSTALL.ALSO YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE VALVE .IT JUST PULLS RIGHT OUT.PUT THE ELBOW ON THE PCV VALVE FIRST AND THEN PUT THE VALVE BACK IN THE YOU CAN FEED THE NEW HOSE UNDER THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING AND PUSH IT INTO THE NEW ELBOW. THEN CONNECT THE OTHER END INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE INTAKE AND YOUR DONE.
LET ME KNOW IF THIS HELPED

Escorts are well known to have motor mount problems which would cause your vibration, once you turn on your A/C you will notice a slight power loss in these type cars, I would suggest a good fuel injection cleaning as well as cleaning out what is called the throttle body, this is where all the air goes into your engine, fords have a tendency to build up carbon around the little plate you will see once the air fliter housing is removed cleaning this makes a big difference.
Good Luck and I hope this helps.

My ford escort 1800cc ghia hatchback 1997 yawes upwards to the left front under heavy acceleration, but doesnt torque steer, but is discerning. Me and a friend tested the engine by putting into gear and labouring engine against the handbrake and the engine tips noticably forward, more than it should by an inch or so, but we cannot find which mount has failed. Is there a mount that normally fails and gives this trouble as all look ok?
