Overall, the best car I have ever owned, hands down. I am the original owner, and have close to 250K on it. I'm not religious about oil changes every 3000, but I get to them eventually. There's plenty of power in the manual trans 1.9 engine, I can pull steep grades with a full load of passengers & luggage running in 4th gear. I'm on my 5th set of tires, 4th windshield (darn rocks), 3rd water pump (they go after about 120K, easy fix tho), 2nd radiator (replaced at 210K), 5th timing belt. Those are all pretty minor, even expected things. The engine, manual trans, A/C, suspension, body, interior, all have been rock solid.
Does anyone know if is for real?. Those female escorts looks kinda cheap?. Can I trust them?

Check for spark & fuel . shoot a small amount of starting fluid into air intake , crank engine- if fires at all check fuel pressure - 41 psi - 50 if not in specs -bad fuel filter or pump, replace both at once. if no fire - remove spark plug(s), check electrode(s).ifthey look o.k. install onto plug wire , hold plug to engine block or any metal part, crank engine, check for spark , if none, remove timing belt cover enough to see top cam gear, crank engine -is belt/ gear turning? if not - needs timing belt. if o.k. may need ignition module or coil.

1994 Ford escort GT 1.8liter my fuel pump is not kicking off after three second's it runs consitly while the key is in on position why

Maybe your fuel pump relay is sticking on, and needs replaced. Even when you turn it off from running, and then key back to on, it keeps running constantly? The computer signal to the relay, energizing it to pass power to the pump, should only last 2 or 3 seconds. I think it automatically stops the signal after that short period. The relay should click off then and stop the pump. The computer would signal it again when it senses the engine cranking, but not until then.

1994 Ford Escort, auto trans, 83,000 mi, randomly won't shift from 1st to 2nd, randomly loses power at hwy speeds

It could be an internal problem with a pump, or it could be it needs to be serviced really bad. Most 'oil change' places can also do transmission services... I'd try that first, before paying a big repair bill to a shop. good luck.

My 94 ford escort is leaking antifreez on the passenger floor and my car is over heating there is only water in the radiator if i empty it and put antifreez will it stop this problem??

Your problem is in the heater. Maybe just a bad hose. New antifreeze, even the ones that advertise to seal leaks won't always solve the problem.

Spark Plug Wiring Diagram For 1994 escort

Firing order is 1-3-4-2
Remove no 1 cylinder sparkplug(furthest from the transmission). Block the plug hole with your hand. Rotate the engine with a wrench until you feel pressure under your hand. No 1 cylinder is now on compression stroke.
Now get the engine on TDC(Line up notch on the crank pulley with the timing pointer). Remove the distributor cap. The rotor arm will be pointing at no 1 cylinder plug wire. Moving clockwise connect the wires.
