Question about Ford ZX2

1 Answer

I HAVE A 98 ZX2. I CHANGED A VALVE COVER GASKET AND 2 DAYS LATER THE CAR WOULD RUN FINE AND THEN SHUT OFF WHEN TRING TO STOP. IT WOULD START RIGHT BACK UP BUT HAD TO KEEP THE RPMS UP. 2 DAYS LATER THE IDOL WAS TERRIBLE. I GOT ANOTHER VCT AND THE TDC KIT. THE CAR STARTED RIGHT BACK UP AND RAN GREAT IN THE DRIVEWAY. I CHECKED FLUIDS AND WHAT NOT AND TOOK IT OUT FOR A SPIN. ABOUT 10 TO 15 STOPS LATER AND IT STARTED RUNNING FUNNY AGAIN AND IT KICK OFF THE P1383 CODE AGAIN.

I had the same problem. My car sat for a few days and when i went to start it i heard an extremely loud pop (kind of like a backfire). After that it would start and sound fine, but die 2 seconds later. Thank god my bf is a mechanic he knew instantly that the pcv valve hose that connects to the intake manifold unplugged itself. He plugged it back in and it runs fine now. I didnt however get a check engine light, but i only tried to start it twice before he fixed it because i was scared it jumped time.
