Question about 1992 Ford Escort 4 Door
I have a 92 Escort and for the past couple weeks the car has had issues with starting. The car engine would turn and turn and finally start, but the past couple times it wouldn't even turn (but would start after the second or third try). Now it won't start at all. I've researched a little and have found out that it could be one of a few things, but i'm interested to know if anyone has any other ideas.
There is power, the lights and radio come on. We have had issues with the spark plugs before where one will burn out rather fast, but even then the car will start but would just run one 3 cylinders. The only kind of sound the car makes when trying to start is a low humming noise and I assume that's just the electricity in the car.
Unfortunately money is extremely tight and my mechanic is about an hour away and i don't have the $ to tow the car there; so i'm looking at replacing the dist. cap and spark plugs to see if that helps. Besides the timing belt, what else should I look for? Is there anything else that I can try to do myself?
Ok first off I just had this problem. Had lights radio and everything but wouldn't turn over. Check your battery terminals, a bad connection will arc your battery causing it to have low voltage and not enough to turn the car over. I learned this the hard way 140.00 later on a new starter and it was only the terminals
