Hi just an update to my problem the heater is hot but now the gauge moves to qauter way up but its running on choke and revving at 1200 ec se engine 2001 thanks

You have air in the coolant system. An uncovered sensor (air pocket around the sensor) will read cold, telling the computer to idle the engine at a higher speed. Bleed the air out and idle should return to normal.

Possible your sensor is bad or wiring from it to ECM is defective, i.e. broken or shorted wire.

Try bleeding the air out first, then check the wiring and/or replace the sensor if the idle does not return to normal.

I would say that you need to reset the control module for the transmission to work properly. Have this done by a code reader tool for best results.. If you still have the problem have the fault codes read at the same time.

I have a 2001 ford escort and theres no spark. we already change the cam sensor and the crankshaft sensor but still no spark

Randomly changing parts is the hard and EXPENSIVE way to diagnose this problem.
This could be caused by the anti-theft system, it could be caused by shorted reference voltage circuits to your cam, crank, mass airflow, map or throttle position sensors. This could be caused by missing ignition voltage at the ignition coil. This could be caused by shorted control circuits between the powertrain control module and the ignition coil, etc., etc., etc.

The FIRST thing that should be done is to scan your powertrain control module (PCM) as well as your generic electronic module (GEM) and your instrument panel module (IPC) to see if there are any fault codes present. If there is a P1260 code for example, this would indicate that your antitheft system is the cause of the "no-spark" condition. In this case, you would diagnose your antitheft system, NOT your engine control system. Please note that MOST generic OBD code readers CANNOT do all of this.

2001 Ford Escort ZX2 Replaced fuel cap but still has fuel cap indicator light on. Any reasons why light may not be going off??

a leak in evap system, you must have codes pulled, if code indicates a must source leak, very difficult with out a smoke machine. but depending upon code, you might have a mechanical fault...good chances it might be the fp sensor or purge soleniod located by air filter box under to left

It is impossible to tell what is wrong without hooking up an OBD reader to your vehicle and reading the error code(s) present in the Car's memory.

Take a trip to your local parts store, and they will read the codes for free - then come back to re-post the actual code for translation and the repair that is required to fix.

Example: P0433

fluid levels can be fine however does not mean pressures like Oil pressure is okay.. is it the check engine light or service engine soon light you did not specify... if it is the check engine light you will need to have a diagnostic code reader to search and read any stored emmission trouble codes... you can have a tech scan it for you or you can buy a realtively inexpensive code reader at any discount autoparts store like Kragens or Autozone... please rate my help, thanks

I have a 1999 ford escort zx2 2.ol i got a p1745 code what do i do


p1745 - Transmission system problems.

The code for this concern is related to the EPC solenoid in the transaxle.

P1745 EPC EPC solenoid circuit failure EPC solenoid, circuit or PCM shorted or open. Soft/harsh shift feel

The wire to the EPC solenoid is a Yellow and violet wire.The code indicates that the problem is strictly caused by this solenoid circuit. I would suggest inspecting this wire from the trans to the PCM.If there are no obvious faults, replace the wire with a new wire ,eliminating the faulty circuit. Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Fault code 214

This code is caused by the CID sensor, it is a common fault on Escort OBD 1 engine control The Cylinder ID (CID) sensor provides crankshaft position information to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). The PCM uses this information during engine start up to begin sequential fuel injection at the correct time. It's a good possibility the CID is bad or the wiring between the CID and the PCM is open. The CID is located in the back of the cylinder head on the distributor side of the engine systems.

Take it to Autozone, they will hook up a code reader for free, they will tell you why the light came on. Before you take it, make sure your gas cap is on tight. Thats a major reason that the light comes on.
