I have a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2. Sometimes it won't go into any gear and when it does I have to push the gas pedal down all the way to get it to move at all. Does anyone know why it would do this?

Look on the shifter there is a little platic piece that you pop out with a screw driver. when you get the piece out put a screw driver in there and push it down then shift that should do it

1999 ford escort zx2 cranks but won't start


As with any no-start issue, you will need to figure out if you have a problem with fuel pressure to the injectors, or spark to the plugs.
I would also check the computer for trouble codes.
Let me know what you find out.

The brakes light won't go off. Ford Escort ZX2 2001


either replace brake light switch or check on the brake pedal arm for a 1/2 diameter blue rubber brake light switch bumper pad. The brake switch is normally closed which means when you push the on brake pedal the switch makes and power is applied through the switch to the lights. When the brake pedal is released the switch actuator strikes the rubber bumper and opens the switch contacts. If the bumper is missing the switch will not open to break the power circuit to the lights.

I have a ford escort zx2. It's been idling erratically and will sometimes stall. I've already tried replacing the the iac valve and that didn't work. Any other suggestions on what might be wrong?


Fuel filter, air filter and spark plugs.

Can also try adding a can of fuel conditioner (e.g. HEAT) in case you have water in the gas line.

2001 ford escort stuck in park lever won't move starts normally


If it wont move into gear,the safety switch is malfunctioning. You can take the plug out of the hole on the upper right side of the console just to the right of the gear shift lever. put a philips screwdriver in the hole and press down. this will manually release the gear shifter mechanism.

I have a 1999 ZX2 ford escort that starts, but dies in seconds


It is was a gas filter problem blocking gas flowing from the pump. What happening was that when it was trying to **** the last drop of gas into the engine it really disturbed dirts inside the fuel filter and made it clogged at fine mesh. And also make sure give sometime for gas delivered into the fuel line it since it was empty when you change the fuel filter. It means you have to keep starting for a while so gas can go up to the fuel distributor then injectors.

99 ford escort se gets no power and stutters.


When was the last time the timing belt was replaced on it? The cam timing may be retarded back from belt stretch creating this problem. Another thing to check out is if your catalytic converter may be partially plugged up.
