Check the cold start switch and there are other possibilities. You may want to have the computer checked with a code reader. This can be done for free at most auto parts stores such as checker shucks kragen or autozone and the like.

1997 Ford Escort stalling when going 35 mph or less.


You may need to be looking at your Torque Converter being in LOCK UP and forcing it to stall because the Transmission is not letting go of the Motor...

You may also have a Plugged CAT CONVERTER

Test the Temp BEFORE and AFTER.. There should be an INCREASE of at least 100 degrees on the BACK from the Front

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.

Car judders and stalls when stopping


Sounds like a weak battery, have the battery tested, if it gives out a low voltage or other faulty behaviour the computer will not run right, making the guages mess up and the engine run badly. Replace it if it is "weak" when tested. should solve your problem!
Leave feedback good or bad.

You might have a cold start solenoid, It is an extra injector that gives it lots of gas on cold start and then turns off when it is up to temp. If you do have one, then it may be clogged or faulty. It is usually located on the intake manifold seperate from the normal injectors. Follow the fuel line and see if it branches off to any other device other than the fuel rail .
