If it's a stuck lifter, you can try a cup of transmission fluid in the crankcase, or there are many additives at any parts store. If it's a rod that's going... sorry. Nothing you can do. Replace the engine. If it's coming from the top of the engine, it's likely a stuck lifter, and you may be able to loosen it with the additive. If not, you may need to replace the lifters, which isn't death, but if you can't do it yourself, can be pricey. Unfortunately, if it's the crank it's too late.

2002 ford escort zx2 replaced fuel filter, air filter, plugs, and MAS...why won't it stay running?


it could be down to your spark plug leads take the leads out one by one and get somebody to hold the lead to the engine [to earth it] NOT WITH YOUR HAND with something thats not conductive like something plastic then try starting the engine to see if a spark jumps from the lead and repeat this please dont do this with your hand its very dangerous enouf voltage to knock you out!

We understand that your problem is: ok i have a ford sohc escort when you start the car it nocks like hell it started doing this out of the blue i drove it the day before and it ran great the knock is...


Hi there? check the oil level. if there is no oil in the engine, it will make it nock especially at the top end.
If the oil level is ok then start the car and remove the oil top up lead and check if there's any oil coming up to the top of the engine. it should pray oil out of the hole. good luck..

P-reg 96 escort, my battery is dead after only a few hours however when the car is running (after jump starting it) the immobilisor light comes on for about a minute, then starts to flash every 3 seconds....


Bad Alternator.
After Starting or Jumping your vehicle: Remove the Negative Cable from the Battery.
If the Engine dies or runs really rough it is a bad Alternator.
The Battery Starts the Engine and runs nominal operations. The Alternator runs the Engine after it is Started by the Battery.
If the Engine does not die or runs really rough after removing the Negative Cable, then you have a malfunctioning Battery.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

My 02 ford escort is over heating, and starts running really rough and knocking before it wants to quit running. What could this be?


It starts knocking because the engine is getting hot. If you have an electric fan, check to see if it is working. If it is working, replace the thermostat. Last check to see if you have water in your oil Tje oil will be a milky color. If it is you need to have the head gasket replaced. I hope this helps you.
