290,000 miles uses some oil, puff at start. Runs great warm,has new gas tank and f pump, carb was reset about 100,000 ago due to some air leak. Has new f filter.

The engine turns over but shuts off after a few seconds. The dealer checked the battery and says it's good, I even change the batteries in the key. What could be the problem. The mileage is only 48,900
My 93 Ford Escort has 275,000 miles yet was well maintained - when bought the engine had been rebuilt by mechanics. My parents are giving me their 98 Honda Accord, so I'm deciding what to do with the Escort. Should I sell it or junk it? Do you know how I would give it away for salvage? Any advice you can give would be appreciated.

Somehow a message 'WAIT' just came up. I followed the instruction on the manual to rectify it but was not successful. Cut off power by removing Battery terminal and replacing it but still showing WAIT. I got the security code but can not insert it as I cannot get the appropriate message. Thanks.

New battery.Recently replaced fuel pump relay.Runs well,no power lost,no hesitation no acceleration problem.new air box lid and new filter.
I purchased a coolant gas kit and checked/added some gas, so that is OK. The compressure loads the engine when I turn the a/c on, so that seems to be running. Is there an electrical component involved? as I did have some trouble with the electrical juction just next to the battery (+side) But I cant think what else it could be. Help?

It being doing this for about 2 to 3 months off and on.
Everything is working fine when I plug a little device used for music into the power port (the second cigarette lighter). It turns on but I don't have time to fuss with it. A minute later I notice it's turned off. I check my main cigarette lighter and it isn't working either. Then I realize that worst of all there is no air coming from any of my vents! I try turning the knob off and moving it 1 through 5, but no air is coming out at all. Not hot or cold.
When I press the button for A/C, the indicator lights up and I can hear the engine working a little harder the way it normally does when the A/C is turned on but still no air from the vents. The indicator lights for the buttons to switch from outside air to inside air also seems to light up. JUST NO AIR FLOW & CIGARETTE LIGHTERS DON'T WORK.

I figured it was just a fuse so I checked them all (except the larger, gray, square ones - I don't know how to check those) and they were all fine. There haven't been any symptoms that this system was having trouble, it just stopped working exactly as I described. And of course this happens when it's 100 degrees outside every day.

PLEASE HELP! I absolutely can NOT afford to just take it to just blindly take it to a shop It seems weird to me because I thought the cigarette lighters were different systems than the HVAC, but what do I know? I just pray it is an easy fix and not a major part replacement with a lot of labor involved.

Thank you!!!!
can switch be replaced without loosing refrigerant
