2002 Ford Escort QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Was driving and car lost power and came to a stop. I changed spark plugs, coil pack, starter. Checked alternator and have a brand new battery. Still no start. Also sprayed eather into the throttle body to see if it was the fuel pump
The car runs well , everything works except the ac clutch. When I tun on the ac control the idle goes up and the fan starts. I have no other electrical problems. The ac worked fine one day and not at all the next day.
Interior lights won't go out when car shuts off
Our 2002 Escort ZX2 A/C quit cooling, I'm a automotive mechanic, so I checked & am not getting any power to A/C Clutch ( red wire has constant ground & blue/white wire is dead, no power or ground). Something should supply ignition switched power & ground controlled by interior switches. Can you help ?
The "service engine soon" light has been going on and off for several weeks. Problems have been worsening off and on yet when I take it to the mechanic, they can't find anything wrong. My car almost broke down 3 times today. The problem has been off and on, and today much worse. When I slow down or come to a stop there is a lot of chugging and shaking and after slowing or stopping, when stepping on the gas pedal it is having trouble functioning and the car starts to rumble. It is getting very stressful that the mechanic I have trusted said he can't fix it until the problem is happening at that moment. I feel like it's going to take breaking down on the parkway before they can tell me what's wrong. Any ideas? Thank you so much for your help. I need to get this fixed tomorrow. Don't want to wait any longer since it keeps worsening and I don't want to brin
Oh I almost forgot. And sometimes the problem starts when I first turn on the ignition, like the ignition won't fully fire. Then the engine rumbles a bit before I get the car driving and it smooths out for a while. I recently had a new ignition coil put in, but the mechanic said everything checks out ok when I've asked to see if the part may be defective.
reads fine most of the time, then reads cold for no reason.
Heater still works fine when gage reads cold.
Just recently my 02 Escort started overheating, if I run the heater is helps but it keeps getting close to the red. At times the temp will drop to regular temp but it goes up after a while. What could the issue be
I dropped a valve seat #4
And damaged the piston a bit but cleaned it up cylinder walk is good can I use the existing one or can I put a good used piston
Thanks for your help
my obd ii gave me a po457 code but i cant find the part
When leaving a red light or stop sign it takes off slow but as you gradually go it picks up speed.
CODE IS P0125... CHANGED THE THERMOSTAT TWICE AND THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR.. CODE RETURNS AFTER 24-48 HOURS..
PLAN ON CHANGING THE IAT.. WILL THIS SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND KEEP THE ENGINE LIGHT OFF ?
I have checked all my fluids and everything seems to be fine. but the Light still won't go off.
