What wires under steering wheel jump start a ford escort

Be very careful as ignitions do have anti-theft built in. It must match key on most 2000 and on Ford vehicles. Hot wiring only happens in Hollywood.

On old model simple ignition cylinder, if you lost the key, get a new cylinder from auto parts and replace. Problem solved.

Check the oil level, coolant level, transmission level. Check water pump, spark plugs,when did you buy the van check see if the car got accidents car Also do you speed a lot excessive speed can age your vehicle very fast especially you travel thousand miles and if use it to go to work.

Vehicle sputters, bucks, occasionally dies out, rich exhaust fume

The MAF sensor is the likely problem. Ca be clraned w/crc electrical cleaner only. Do not touch , rub,or use compressed air to clean or dry. It's located in the intake duct in one of the metal sections. The plug and wires will give it away. Good Luck-Ned-

Bucking upon acceleration uphill, not any other time. Hard buck not just sputtering

Depending on miles, this could be a timing problem. Also you may want to change plugs, wires, fuel filter and clean fuel injectors.
