    Thanks for your help ! I have never changed a timing belt, but with the Haynes repair manual it doesn't seem that difficult. Headed to the garage... Thanks again. Dumoleironworker.

What type of transmission fluid and how much goes in a 1994 ford escort wagon? I just had it rebuilt and they didn't put much back in it. It barley reads on the stick.

When you read it, make sure the engine and trans are hot, the vehicle is in park, and you're on a level surface.
Ford uses Mercon ATF. Just add 1/4 of a quart at a time until it reads OK on the dipstick.

Trouble code 172 ford escort

system to rich(bank 1). Clean the MAF with QD electronics cleaner and see if it fixes the problem. Otherwise, you might need to replace the 1st o2 sensor and/or the maf. bank 1 is the bank where #1 cylinder is. also check all vacuum lines. if cleaning maf sensor does not help, then replace front 02 sensor on bank 1. the one before converter.

I have a 1994 ford escort 1.9L i'm having trouble finding a cure. Trouble code 172 and a complete loss of power. I know 172 is lean mix but what is the common issue associated with this code and what needs...

I would check and clean the MAF sensor, check fuel pressure, and check fuel pressure regulator. be sure to run fuel pressure test with the regulator hook up and disconnected, if pressure is low cahnge fuel filter and retest, if still low may need to replace fuel pump. Also check the injectors to see that they spray a full cone of fuel. Hope this helps, let me know.

1994 ford escort vibrates horribly in idle, does not stall. Idle is set @ 800rpm, runs smooth when raised to about 1200rpm. Suggestions?

Your Idle air control valve is probably going bad. It is located on the throttle body and is a relatively easy fix as it is only held in with 2 screws. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

1997 Ford Escort losses power when car heats up. Starts fine and runs okay at first. Car will sputter,engine will bog down and eventually lose power after about 10 minutes on the road

Do you have a blown head gasket? Just a guess. If you do this is one of the symptoms. You may have some coolant in your oil. Check your inside the valve cover for water by looking in through the oil cap.
