Question about Ford Escort

1 Answer

I have a 99 escort zx2 2.0 dual overhead cam. Ran great. Yesterday it stalled while driving. Could get it to restart, when put in gear stalled again. Thought had water in gas, put treatment in and more gas. Runs at rough idle. Husband tried to start, backfire then stalled. Then would not restart again. Could it be timing belt? Has 173,000 miles not sure it has ever been replaced.

Car stalls and will not restart while hot


Try a used computer from a salvage yard. They are cheap. Crank sensor or cam sensor may also be bad. Not sure which one that model has.

I'm getting the engine light coming every so often. It seems that after I fill the tank and get down around 3/4 tank, The message I'm getting is "EVAP Emission Control System Purge Flow Fault". PO441 and...


I have a 2004 dodge stratus 2.4 dual overhead cam. When driving down the road, bell goes off, check engine light comes on, and it's like I'm driving on limp mode, when going over 2000 rpm's, there's a severe stutter. After getting code for light it points to cam shaft sensor, which i changed. I also changed crank shaft sensor. After all of this was done, drove great for about 30 miles and the same thing happened all over again. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
