One of your pulleys is probably wobbling letting it come off. With the belt off check each pulley for play and ease of spin.

99 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0L Car will start but won't stay running unless you keep giving it gas


I had the same problem. My car sat for a few days and when i went to start it i heard an extremely loud pop (kind of like a backfire). After that it would start and sound fine, but die 2 seconds later. Thank god my bf is a mechanic he knew instantly that the pcv valve hose that connects to the intake manifold unplugged itself. He plugged it back in and it runs fine now. I didnt however get a check engine light, but i only tried to start it twice before he fixed it because i was scared it jumped time.

1994 ford escort gt won't fire


Have you checked the timing belt?

Ford 1.9 liter ran for 10 min, with no oil now it wont start


If the oil light is going off, then the computer should be telling the engine to run, turning the fuel pump on & the ignition on so you need to crank it & make sure that is happening.

If not, then you'll need to isolate the reason for no ignition first.

You need to check your timing belt now & verify the timing is within the specs & the belt is still intact, possibly the belt jumped/slipped with the excessive drag caused by no oil.

I don't know how hot the car got so you'll need to consider if anything melted, wires, lines & such that would cause the sensors to have problems keeping the ignition from working.

If you do get fire & fuel, you can put about a tablespoon of motor oil down the cylinders wth the plugs removed & crank the engine several revolutions to get the rings lubricated again, then reinstall the spark plugs. This will also provide better compression enabling the engine to start more readily.

good luck

Transmission popping out of gear


Worn engine mounts may let the engine and transmission move too much, also the shift linkages may need adjustment.

3RD GEAR


Yes it is needing some sycronizers replaced probably and might also be needing a gear replaced in there. and also it will not hurt to keep driving it just skip shift like you have been so it doesnt cause any further problems .. if you keep using 3rd gear it might break off something in time just skip it .. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more.

Diagram for fan belt repair


2.0L Engines
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
