Ford Escort QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My car started overheating, then got normal after a while. But once parked and turned off for a while I tried to go to the store later that day and my car started, but I drove a little and it shut off on me. I can crank it and it makes a sound but instead of starting it sounds like the engine is flooding. I cranks but doesn't start. I have all power, it cranks, but it won't start. What is going on with my car?

CAR DOOR OPEN ALL NIGHT, HAD TO BOOST CAR TO START. THAT AFTERNOON BOUGHT A NEW BATTERY. HUSBAND PUT BATTERY IN BUT CAR DID NOT START AND ALL FUSES UNDER HOOD BURNED OUT. SO, HE THOUGHT HE MUST HAVE PLACED BATTERY IN BACKWARDS, SO HE TURNED IT THE OTHER WAY AND REPLACED ALL FUSES UNDER HOOD. WHEN HE WENT TO START THE CAR, IT DID NOT START AND FUSES UNDER HOOD ALL BLEW OUT AGAIN. SO, HE WENT GET A NEW BATTERY AND MORE FUSES AND HAD AN EXPERIENCED PERSON PUT NEW BATTERY AND FUSES IN. BUT IT STILL DID NOT START AND ALL FUSES BLEW OUT. I WAS TOLD BY A COWORKER THAT IT HAS TO BE SOMETHING WITH THE WIRING. CAN U PLEASE HELP.

Car starts but 2nd cylinder not firing.
I have to pump the gas and hold the gas down to get it running, once it starts its fine. I have replaced the fuel injectors, plugs,coil pack, vacum hoses, plug wires, etc..
The car will start rough and it idles even rougher with a clacking sound coming from the left side of the engine. As soon as I put it in gear it shuts off. If I immediately attempt to start it again it doesn't want to turn over without pumping the gas pedal.
It started this morning when I turned my wheel to turn. Now it keeps going on and off. Does it have to do with the all brake systems
