If you cant push start your vehicle, AND the starter is locked up, then you MOST LIKELY have a locked up motor. You will have to replace the motor. BUT, before you spend all that money, i would try putting a new starter on the car first. I sure hope this helps, James Booth

My 1994 ford escort 1.9 wont start or crank

Click on the link.
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the start position and is wired through clutch switch, I haven't looked up info on your clutch switch. The starter motor is grounded through engine block. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is out of gear and parking brake is set.
You can check the starter itself, take it off, lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from battery to starter motor, at the least, it should kick out the drive gear and spin.

Ignition problem on ford escort.


The battery might seem ok but I would take it to a place like Sears or a large auto parts store.Call them first to be sure they have a load tester.. Tell them the battery needs to be "load tested".When you turn the key to start it takes alot more amp power to turn the engine over.
I hope this helps you.

Starter "clicks" but will not start.. Had starter tested, it's fine


the belt which you have recently fitted is over tight which is not allowing the motor to run so try to fit a belt by making it somewat loose which will make the motor run
