Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Will turn over battery good,starter turning over but will not start. was driving fine parked it now will not start
While looking at the dash,watch the Check engine light while you crank it. The light should go out. If not, you are missing the crank signal. Does the engine sound different when it turns over since the no start? It could be a broken timing belt. A quick check for this is to have an assistant crank the engine while you look through the oil fill cap at the camshaft to see if it is turning.If it is not ,the belt broke. If this doesn't get it,text me back. Also include the engine size and any codes if you can pull them. Good Luck.
