My 95 escort seems to be running rich. It exmits alot of bluish smoke out of the exhaust. And it runs rough at a idle, but at a higher rpm, it smooths out. It has no power when going up a hill. And it has exhaust coming out of the engine when i remove the oil fill cap I have cleaned the air intake and replaced the fuel filter, air filter. It does not seem to be the plug or plug wires. for they are new. please help

my tires are wearing out extremely fast on the outside on the front of my car. the back tires are fine. i've heard that it could be the suspension or that the tow needs to be adjusted? any advice would be great. cuz i've gone thru two sets of tires on my front end in the past year. thanks =)
I am having air conditioner problems and would like to try and figure out if the compressor is out or if it might be something else. My air worked fine on the way to work and when I got off it was not blowing cold. The next day I took it and had freon added. He did say he had a hard time getting it to take freon. It worked fine when I left there and went to work. The next day it was not cold again. I assumed I had a leak. A friend checked the freon and said it showed to be full and said that there is some kind of overfill and underfill switch on the compressor that might have shut it off. Has anyone heard of this? My other question is if the compressor could be out. I didn't think so because of it not working the first day and then it did work after adding freon twice. Help Please.
as above car is now dangerously overheating.During winter and spring the temp. was OK unless I pushed the car, hard.The catalytic converter is also about shot.
I have a 1993 Ford Escort wagon with all the symptoms of an oil pump failing. Only has 71,000 on the engine (senior citizen owned before me. I'd appreciate an informed opinion as to cost. Does the engine need to be removed could it hopefully be as simple as dropping the oil pan; assuming the pump is located near the oil itself?
'96 escort 3door hatchback, drivers side seatbelt didn't open or close when door or ignition turned on, set in the closed position like you are wearing a seatbelt. saw two wires coming from a plastic access plug, connected them and the seatbelt opened. Now it won't close!!! What is the cause of this, I have checked fuses, they are all good. Thanks for the info
This is my son's first car, has about 160,000 miles and has started locking up with anti theft shut down where the switch will turn, lights on the dash but starter will not engage. If we wait hours (minimum of 2-3) it will then start. Have stopped using the clicker in case that is the problem it is very worn out. Don't want to spend lots on it cause it isn't worth it.
runs rough all the time,changed wires and plugs
how to i get the water pump out
we just changed the engine in my ford escort gt. we've changed the coil, sparkplugs, and distributar cap. i've also tried the coolant sensor. i don't think that the coil is sending spark. we've checked and made sure everything was hooked up and also checked fuel inertia switch. sounds like it wants to start but with no spark. what could be the problem
my full pumpe is working. full lines are clear to the engine and wont turn over
have no spark and no power going to the fual pump changed compter and box to spark plugs and all secores
The a\c on my 2001 escort zx2 works great part of the time and then suddenly quits blowing cold air. Someone told me it could be some type of connection with the wires that someimes wiggles loose. But couldn't tell me where it is. Does anyone know about this, or if that would actually be the problem?
do i have to lift the motor to replace the belts? both the alternator and power steering belts are gone this is no factory air
My car has been having a problem, when its warm outside normally above 90 degrees it will stall out and will not restart untill it sits for a minute or two then after about 5 miles of going at a consistent speed it will stall out again. I have also noticed it will cut out a little when i get on it, i replaced the fuel filter but that did not help anything so my next guess is fuel pump or IAC valve. Any help would be greatly appreciated
