Question about 1995 Ford Escort
When my car idles it goes to a lower rpm, then it just sounds like it is chugging, but it does run, but you cant sit at alight or it will stall, one mechanic tells me it is a $200 part, and another tells me its a fuel filter that is 29.00, it has 100.000 miles on it , and other than that its in good shape? help
It could be either or I would change all fuel filters first go for a drive and give it some beans to get any crud out of fuel system if the doesn't work it could be a timing sensor or fuel sensor. They can be dear to replace but if it runs ok while not at idol I would be thinking filter as if they get to dirty they restrict fuel flow at idol but when at higher rpm the suction of the engine helps draw in fuel, although may still run a bit rough
