Ford escort 2l engine surges, changes rpm at idle.

My escort is rpm over 3k when it starts and check engine light comes on. i get codes 116, 412, and 411..what can i do?


Code 116- Engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor out of range, I would replace it.

Code 411- Idle speed system not controlling idle properly (too High)
Code 412- Idle speed system not cotrolling idle properly (too Low)

After replacing the ECT clear codes by disconnecting battery positive for at least ten seconds, see if codes 411, 412 return, if so clean or replace the Idle Air Control solenoid (IAC), repeat clearing of codes. Hope this helps, let me know.

Hi my 1999 Ford escort when it goes back to idle


sounds like a vacuume leak, take some soapy water in a spray bottle and spray the hoses slowly, when the motor levels out you found your leak, being 11 yrs old, i would change all the hoses anyway, they are overdue

Engine idle speed


Sounds like you idle air control valve is starting to mess up. You can actually take this off and clean it with throttle body cleaner and it should help get your idle back to normal. As is sounds the idle air control valve controls how fast/slow your car idles. It is located on the throttle body normally held on with a couple of screws. The throttle body is where the air duct hose coming from the air filter box ends at the engine block. Here is a picture of what you are looking for: a483326.jpg
Make sure that you clean the valve portion and not the electrical plug with the throttle body cleaner. Let it air dry or blow lightly with compressed air before putting it back on. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Dies when idling, does better with a/c on, but still dies


this is your problem:

Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Hi, I have a M reg(95) ford escort azura car and it's running very sluggish, like having trouble picking up speed,i've changed all the spark plugs and the leads, i think it may be do with the petrol...


The easiest way to find fuel filters is to start at the petrol tank and work forwards some put them just infront of the petrol tank others are just befor the engine bay you should be able to follow you fuel lines from either end and it should be about 1.5 feet from motor or just after tank
