1993 Ford Escort Problems

Valve seats (components in the cylinder head that help seal the valve) can fall out. When this happens, it causes rough running and creates noise. Replacement of the cylinder head is commonly required to fix this problem.

The engine may overheat due to coolant loss as a result of a cracked cylinder head. In most cases the cylinder head will require replacement to correct this concern.

Failure to change the power steering fluid can cause the fluid to become gray with metal particles. The contaminated fluid can damage the power steering pump resulting in a growling noise when the wheel is turned; the damaged pump will require replacement to eliminate the noise.. Life of the power steering gearbox and pump will be shortened if the fluid is not serviced regularly.

I've had my 1993 Escort for 15 of its 17 years. It is just shy of 100,000 miles (I've been unemployed). It's been a very reliable car. It has no rust, although I do keep it in the garage.

About a year or so ago it began to have a rough idle that I finally found a mechanic who knew wha...
