The fuel filter may be clogged, and not letting fuel through, if not that check the fuel pressure regulator.when vehicle is turned off, you get a delay in building up sufficiant fuel pressure the next time you try to start it. check fuel filter first. then go from there.

1993 Ford escort turns over but won't start! I check the fuel switch and its down! What do I do next?


Check to make sure your getting spark. Next make sure your fuel pump is turning on when the key is turned on. You should hear it run for a couple seconds when the key is turned on.

98 ford escort just died while driving


Hi!!
If the starter cranks up, your problem is going to be the fuel pump. On the fuel line or fuel rail, by the injectors, there should be a small screw on cap (like the one on the tires), unscrew it to expose the Schrader Valve, just like the one on the tires. Place a piece of cloth in front of it, with a small screwdriver or similar tool, press the valve stem to relieve the fuel pressure, you should see a stream of gas coming out, If little or no gas comes out, have someone turn the ignition to the RUN position, DO NOT START THE VEHICLE, gas should pour out for the 2 seconds the pump remains energized. If gas comes out without pressure or no gas comes at all. Check Fuel Pump Fuse and Relay, if they are both OK, the fuel pump needs to be replaced. If when you press the Schrader Valve and gas comes out with full pressure, your problem will be in the electrical side.
Keep me posted! Good Luck! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Ford Escort (1993) (EFi engine) starts, then stalls.


The fuel pump in the petrol tank has a sock that acts as a coarse filter. This sock gets clogged with muck causing the car to starve of fuel intermittently and lead to the stalling as you've described. If you pour in some injector cleaner (contains detergents) or methylated spirits it may just fix the problem. Condensation (water) in the fuel creates a slimy goop that clogs filters. It worked for me and my 1992 Daihatsu Charade, and have heard that other cars with similar symptoms have been cured in the same way, usually after expensive repairs have already proved unsuccessful . A cheap solution really! Try this first. Good Luck.

Fuel problem


Sounds more like tuning problem. Clean or replace plugs, gapping them to specs and see how that works for you.

1993 ford escort wagon,no electric to injectors


The fuel delivery system uses an electric fuel pump to provide high-pressure fuel to the fuel injectors. The fuel pump is located at the rear of the vehicle, mounted in the fuel tank. It can be accessed by removing the rear seat.

The fuel tubes leading from the fuel tank to the engine are under pressure during vehicle operation. When the engine is turned OFF, the fuel in the fuel tubes remains pressurized for long periods of time to provide quick start-ups. Fuel not used by the fuel injectors during operation is routed back to the fuel tank through the fuel return tube.

The fuel handling components are protected by three fuel filters. A replaceable in-line fuel filter is located inside the engine compartment between the fuel tank and fuel injection supply manifold. A serviceable filter screen is located inside the fuel tank at the fuel pump inlet. A non-serviceable filter screen is incorporated into each fuel injector.


I can get you trouble shooting tips if you want them.

Jerking while driving


If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.
