Question about 1999 Ford Escort

1 Answer

My 1999 ford escort air conditioner quits working after driving for a while. It works fine when I first start up in any cooling mode. However, after sitting in traffic or parked and idling it quits cooling in all modes until the car is turned off and sits for a couple of hours.

    their is a fan in front of the radiator,but build models can vary acording to country ,so if it has only one fan then as soon as AC is turned on it should start running ,if it is then you have a problem elsewhere like a compressor clutch has weak windings that are shorting out when hot so not pulling the clutch in properly but then it would start slipping and you notice something ,is the radiator in front clean and free of dried bugs

Air Conditioner leaking into passenger side of 1999 Ford Escort. Need to locate drain line to clean it out...Found leaves and debris in barrel fan... how to keep keep leaves out... THANKS!

The water leaking is caused by the evaporator drain being stopped up. Look under the car in the area of the firewall on the passenger side and try to find the end of a rubber hose the water is supposed to drain from. Clear it out with air pressure.

The leaves will usually work their way in from the fresh air intake below the wipers. Keep it cleared off to prevent them from getting to the fan.

I have a ford escort zx2. It's been idling erratically and will sometimes stall. I've already tried replacing the the iac valve and that didn't work. Any other suggestions on what might be wrong?

Fuel filter, air filter and spark plugs.

Can also try adding a can of fuel conditioner (e.g. HEAT) in case you have water in the gas line.
