recheck your cam timing belt, sounds like it jumped on you. PCV valves generally plug into the valve cover and you would have had to seen it when you pulled the head. not all cars have them

All automatic ZX2's have a rough idle in gear. Ford even put out a TSB and tried to fix it with no success. The engine is internally balanced and does not have a harmonic dampener. This means you get all of the engine vibration transferred to the frame. I own three ZX2's, my sister has one, my friend has two, they all have rough idle in drive.

The noise you get from the oil filler is normal to an extent. It is an overhead cam engine so you will hear noise from the oil filler. The oil you see on the spark plugs is likely from the valve cover gasket. That is the only place the oil can come from and get onto the top of the spark plugs. It can't travel through the spark plug threads and get on top from the combustion chamber.

It is good you replaced the PCV valve (I know it is hard to reach) but did you replace the breather? There is a round black box with a hose coming from the intake that goes onto the top of the valve cover. This is the air inlet for the PCV and if it gets clogged it will allow pressure to build up in the crank case.

What can i buy for my honda to do a tune up


New sparkplugs, filters, perhaps plug wires... the rest requires diagnostic equipment. I change plugs and filters and if everything is running okay and my mileage is normal, I don't worry about it. If anyone else knows more, I'd like to hear it.

LOCATION OF PCV VALVE ON 2002 FORD ESCORT ZX2


Looking from the front of the car, start at the thermostat housing (where the top radiator hose goes) and go down from there. Located right next to the exhaust mannifold you'll see the hose going to the PCV valve.

Idle is rough


it sounds like you have a vaccume leak , check all hoses that run to the throttlebody for cracks or holes, if you are losing vaccume than your car will run erratically , good luck.

PCV valve? IAC valve? Sparkplug wire? Throttle body? Vacuum hose?


the most common causes are plug wire, plug, vacuum leak at intake, fuel injector failure and last no/low cylinder compressio.

02 ZX2 runnig poor after spark plug replacement


Solution seems a little miraculous (although I believe in miracles).
I ohmed out each sparkplug wire finding them all good.
I wiped off the little debry that had collected around each seal of both the sparkplug and distributor ends (remember, I keep this engine clean and there was no noticable fluids or dirt before or during this problem).
I then replaced the same plug wires and viola, all is good!

My only thought is that maybe when putting the plug caps down in the sparkplug wells that maybe one or more found their way beside a plug inside of over and on the plug, but I did not take any wires off to verify this.
