Hi,

If it is a knocking sound then it sounds like the bearings inside the engine are faulty and need replacing, this means the engine needs to be dismantled and rebuilt.

Hope this helped.

Thanks

Jason

I would take it to a parts store to figure out what the trouble code is.Most of them will scan your car for free. That is always a good place to start.

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..

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.
