Replace the spark plugs,and check the boot on that cylinder,it may just be a cold spark plug.

    Ok,then the injector has to be the problem,most likely has trash in it,try Lucas fuel treatment,it is the best,the less fuel you have in the vehicle,the quicker it works.

did you check the INERTIA SWITCH? above the right rear wheel? sometimes even slamming the door or trunk will set it off. power goes to that switch and then to the pump. Fuse OK? Relay OK? You always check for power at the pump before going through the trouble to take it out.

Engine problem 1999 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front


Sounds like you make have a vacumn leak on one of the rubber vacumn lines that attach to the intake manifold. Check all of these lines and look for cracks, pinholes and lines that have colapsed.

You need to check the timing if that checks out you should do a compression test and make sure its not a blown head gasket

How do I set the timing when replacing the timing belt.


If you are just replacing the belt because it's worn. Carefully remove the old belt and replace. no timing will be neccesary
