2002 Ford Escort Questions and Answers
need a wiring diagram and position for a solenoid on a 2002 Ford Escort
Increasingly loud high pitched humming is causing concern. Gets good mileage, over 100,000 mi, I bought it with about 20,000 on it. No knocking, pinging, all fluids topped up and hoses okay....
Where's the EGR vacuum solenoid located on my 2002 Ford Escort. Can I see it from the top of the engine?
My car won't start, but I don't believe it is that battery because the air, lights, and radio still works. Not sure what the problem is. It ran fine the night before. Any suggestions?
2002 Ford Escort Reviews
I bought my Ford escort back in 2004, when it was only two years old and had only 23,000 miles. I currently have 141,000 miles. No major hang ups. I put on a considerable amount of miles due to my work's location along with other things. I do have one major hang up that I find troubling with the car, and that is the thermostat. The original lasted around 90,000 miles. Since then I have had not one but three replacements from good places! I idle the car more when it's cold, but eventually the thermostat becomes useless. I never had a problem like this with any of my other cars. The reason why I kept getting it fixed is because the rest of the car has been doing great! The engine runs like its new! It gets decent gas mileage. I really like it over all. Other than the thermostat, I have never had a car which performed so well!
I have a 2002 Escort with 211,000 miles. I bought this car used 6-7 years ago with around 60,000 miles on it. I have only had to do maintainance like battery, brakes/rotors, belts, alternator etc. I do all this myself so it's been a very low cost car to maintain. Recently the A/C has developed a leak somewhere, so if anyone has had this problem, I would love some advice. I absolutely LOVE this car!!
I love my Ford Escort, 2002... 120,000+, runs great! I will definitely want another when the time comes!
My 2002 Ford Escort has 120,000 miles on it and still has the original exhaust. Runs well except for the engine noise which seems to be a common problems. When I'm ready to trade it in I would definitely buy another Ford (Focus)
