I've been having a problem with my 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 - occasionally when I come to a full stop while driving - when I go, my car has trouble moving (it's almost as if the engine spins, but not sure)...

Be sure to check the fluid level and top-off if needed. If this continues, get an opinion from a different shop--you may have a plugged filter screen or a fluid pump needing replacement. Ignoring the problem will eventually lead to burned clutch discs and contaminated fluid.

1989 ford escort won't start

No spark and/or no gas.

Spark is controlled by the coil, iignition module, distributor (cap and rotor) and plugs and wires.

Almost every time it will be the ignition module which is screwed to the side of the distributor and has a few wires coming out of it (about 6 wires, can't remember)

To verify the spark, by a spark tester at any auto parts store and test the spark by using the NO.1 plug wire. Be careful because if u have the 1.9 H.O. engine, it runs at roughly 35 000 volts and i kid u not.
As for no gas, either tank is empty (which i'm sure u checked) or bad fuel pump or fuel pump fuse.

Also verify firstly in hte trunk there's a fuel pump cut off switch. It's a reset for in case an accident happens, it turns off the fuel pump. I believe it's on the drivers side in the trunk on the side wall.If i remember there's an acces panel there in the trunk. Start by checking this first, then fuses.

Lemme know wut u find.
