1999 Escort ZX2 idling rough & not shifting in to overdrive

My escort ZX2 is idling rough, I cleaned the IAC and throttle body and there are no vacuum leaks. Also, the "check engine light" is on and the car will not shift in to overdrive on the freeway.

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.

2001 escort iddling very rough.


I have the same problem with my ZX2. First you have to find out what engine you have to find out what emission control system you have. if you have a ERG valve clean it and your throttle body. Throttle body cleaner is under 10 bucks at autozone. If you don't have an ERG valve you might need a new idle air control it is 100 bucks at autozone and on the ztec engine it is bolted underneath the throttle body. you should also clean your mass air flow sensor which is located in your air cleaner right behind your air filter, after all of that check all your vacuum lines for leaks and if that does not fix it you might need a new PCV valve this one is pretty cheap about 5 dollars.

The idle air control vavle is located on the driver side of the intake manifold, below the throttle body. You'll have to remove the air intake to see it. It is held there by two bolts.

99 escort SOHC engine. Idles rough at start up. Smooths out some when it warms up but still idles erratically and surges. Changed the plugs and put new air filter in, but no change. Plugs are fairly black...


If you can find the IAC valve(idle air control) on the throttle body-it should be replaced or try to clean..If you put in new plugs and they turn soot black in a short time period, you have other issues-possible internal engine,such as valve train problems, or a partial exhaust blockage, or the fuel your buying is not good...

2001 ford escort, rough idle, runs smooth while driving, but tries to die at every stop-replaced vacuum lines, plugs, wires, etc.- nothing has worked


Your IAC may be defective, first check the canister purge valve by removing the large hose off the charcoal canster and plugging the hose with a bolt or something you can fit into it, then try it also check PCV valve and see if it's bad. there are more things to check like fuel filter fuel pump and or fuel strainer if fuel tank but would need to have more information to help.

2000 Ford Escort ZX2 hot, idles ruff and sounds like a vacuum leak


Check your IAC,, Idle Air Control solenoid. It is attached to the throttle body and controls the air flow at idle by bleeding air into the throttle body.
