    Are you pumping the accelerator pedal to start the car? That would feed too much gas into the carburetor creating the gas smell. No pedal pumping is needed to start the car.

1998 Ford Escort Se 2000cc SOHC will difficultly start the first time then has to set 30 - 40 minutes before it will start again


Holding the gas pedal to the floor will cause the PCM to put the fuel injection system into clear flood mode , cutting the amout of fuel going into the engine . Pumping or pushing on the gas pedal while cranking the engine over does nothing but allow more air into the engine , it's not giving it more gas . The computer has a set program it follows at start up . It's not like a carburetor ! Fuel pressure regulator .

My 1992 ford escort 1.9L has started ticking through all rpm ranges, could this be a valve adjustment problem? If not what could it be?


It is most likely to be the valves, but if it only happens under load it is what we call a spark knock from burning low octain gas........Hope this helps.

Escort starting problems


Hey Tam_kc71!

The catalytic converter is very notorious in going out on Fords of any year or make - No rotten eggs smell nothing - They will go out. Get that checked and I bet that is your problem. Not that hard to replace yourself.

My fuel cutoff switch was going off two days ago and i could not get the car started.i let it sit for two days and went to go start and i was getting a strong gas odor from inside of the car it wasnt even...


if you have tried starting it for a while , this can give off a petrol smell because if the engine isnt firing then the bores are getting floaded , the fuel cut off switch should only switch off for a reason ,, EG head on bump , part from that the switch could be faulty. but when the car runs after a short while and still stinks of fuel i would advise to get it checked out asap .. matdav69
