1995 ford escort idle problem

I have a 1995 ford escort with only 130 000 km the car is in pretty good shape except for the idle of the car , when you first start it it runs high at a fast idle and than goes low again when driving it seems to want to stall out unless you keep the foot on the peddle and hints on this problem idles so low at traffic lights you have to give it gas

The IAC valve is usually the problem with the 1.9 Escorts ,causing a very poor engine idle at a stop. It is located on the side of the throttle body .

98 escort high idle


check for vaccuum leaks.. try spraying brake cleaner around the lines and see if it changes anything with the idle spped.. if it sucks in some it will chug while you spray it.. That helps locate a leak..

Engine stalling when idling


I would check for an intake leak somewhere. Cracked or broken vacuum lines will usually be the problem. Good luck

Ford failed MOT on High CO emission


High CO usualy means the O2 sensors are not reading properly. Take it to a parts store that can read codes, I know Auto Zone does in my area. If it is the O2 sensor it is an easy fix but the sensors run about $50.00 each.

Cooling System


No you have air trapped in the cooling system, rasie the front of the car up as high as you can get it, fill the coolant bottlre to the top and run the engine for about 15 minutes at a high idle, let it cool down, it should purge itself of air once it is cool, make sure your radiator cap is good.

Start up


Sounds like you may have a leaking head gasket, have the cooling system checked for combustion gases when the engine is cold, head gasket issues are common on the Escort.
