OK, if it is running rough, does the engine computer record any misfires on any specific cylinders? If so, then start changing parts in that area such as plug wires, plugs, and fuel inj. if this applies.

Hope this helps.

Oil pressure goes down afterrunning 10 minutes


You will need to get a pressure gauge for testing oil pressure, though I would put money on the oil pressure switch or gauge. you could be facing a new oil pump.

1997 ford explorer V6. Engine was idling to warm up, went in house for 10 minutes. Came out engine smoking knocking like crazy. Shut off engine and opened hood, oil was sprayed all over engine oil...


this sounds like the engine oil cooler hose was leaking.

DO NOT run the engine again until you fill with oil.

start the engine and look for the hose that is leaking.

1997 Ford Escort losses power when car heats up. Starts fine and runs okay at first. Car will sputter,engine will bog down and eventually lose power after about 10 minutes on the road


Do you have a blown head gasket? Just a guess. If you do this is one of the symptoms. You may have some coolant in your oil. Check your inside the valve cover for water by looking in through the oil cap.
