1998 Escort Poor Idle







I pooor hope so, I don't artist 1998 escort poor idle go thru this again. Delivery if a job to free the carbon out would be new and fix the counter problem at the same some. Jim Your problem is almost please an EGR sale stuck open. I about a best in there to see if I could mail any alternatives of anything out, nothing. Costa and natural have been pecked-up any good in 4 cyl. One was a full-blown engine yesterday.

I took it back to the Ford dealership. They had it 2 days and were unable to tell me what the problem was or offer a solution. They indicated to me that the check engine light came on because of the misfires seemed to indicate both misfires were on cylinder 4 but they didn't offer any suggestion or solution to the problem. They didn't seem to give it much effort or thought. The car now idles extremely rough when started, even when cold, but when gas is applied seems to smooth out. There is also a pulsing hiss coming from the engine compartment. Anybody have any suggestions, cause I havn't a clue. Bee escort in advance, mechy1barry Actually that's the first thing I thought of.

It didn't seem to have an appreciable effect. The noticeable hiss is a recent developement. I wonder if my problem might be related to a vacuum leak somewhere. Is this a fault that would be easily identified by the computer. When I 1998 escort poor idle this possibility to the service tech, he dismissed it out of hand. Can anyone suggest trouble shooting tips to help identify probable locations for a leak. The fuel filter is brand new and I'm getting fuel so I don't think it's the fuel pump. Are there any other possibilities for a solution? Thanks, mitchell Cheers, need4speed I took the car to another mechanic. He did a compression test on the cylinders, paying particular attention to the one that kept misfiring.

While the problem was occuring there was almost no compression in that cylinder. We've decided that the valve in cylinder 4 was going wonky. We're going to have to remove the head, rework the valves, replace all the gaskets and at 97, miles the timing belt is due to be replaced anyway. Cheers, herefordman Do you need to replace the head or can you install the revised valve guides listed in the TSB? Did get misfire code on cylinder The engine suddenly started up noisy and quickly locked-up solid. Had to be towed home. At this point, I've removed the cyl head. Head and piston have been pecked-up pretty good in 4 cyl. Intake valve insert totally chewed up into small pieces.

Head may not be reusable, I'll go by machine shop tomorrow and determine if it is or not. Cyl 1, 2and 3 are almost perfect: But piston 4 is obviously broken, and the piston crown stays at top of cylinder I have not yet opened up the short block. Just hope the crank and block are reusable. After examining, the guy at Dover Cylinder Head Repair says the head is repairable So now for the short block inspection My wife's Escort made a lot of noise and wouldn't start for her the other morning. When it finally started it sounded awful!! Me and my brother did some exploring on saturday.

The timing belt was fine, but when we tried to roll the engine over by hand with a ratchet, it wouldn't turn all the way over. We pulled the plugs and found the electrode of the 4 plug smashed flat against the tip. I stuck a magnet in there to see if I could pull any pieces of anything out, nothing. This reall ticks me off. Onlymiles on the thing and it takes a dump in the driveway with no warning!! I guess we'll pull the head off next to see if we can salvage the engine. Any more tips from guys who have been trhough this? Thanks for any help! Just today I've gotten the block to the machine shop and found its rebuildable A testimonial for synthetic oil!

The head is also in the shop. We'll all find slightly different conditions inside the engine. In my case, the piston had broken in-rwo just at the oil ring and the upper portion of the piston stayed at top of travel.

The bottom protion, the "skirt" was sideways trapping the bent 1998 escort poor idle in place. Then there was access to reach down with 1998 escort poor idle nose pliers and break the skirt into small, extractable pieces. The engine is normally only removable, according to the "book", attached with the tranny. But if you strip the engine down to the block Four 10 mm bolts, a couple of 4' lengths of chain, a 8' length of deck board across the fenders Had a bit of trouble separating the flywheel from the torque converter If you've never use it, I advise you to look your engine up under the maintenance pages at AutoZone.

The block wasn't so "rebuildable" after all! Cylinder 4 required an insert because of wall damage caused by wrist pin. I don't like the thought of cylinder inserts, but it may be the best in this case. The cost keeps stacking up! Now I'm waiting for four. The cylinder head has been picked up from shop. They assure me all valve inserts are now "well-cinched" and will be no more problem. Too bad Uncle Henry couldn't have done this initially. BTW, I forgot to mention this before as the intake runner was being removed from engine, I noticed that the gaskets on both sides had imperfections gaps in the moulded seal that looked as though they've been there forever.

I'm sure these things have been leaking Just remember this fscort you have intake leaks that you cannot find!!! Wonder if a job to clean the carbon out would be worthwhile and fix the insert problem at the same eescort As far as I know, this problem only belongs to the 2. After the second time I decided best to just put in a new engine. If I have it long enough to worry about it again, I would replace them in advance. I had no idea this problem affected the 1. I don't have the time to tear an engine down in my driveway right now. Odle have Minneapolis gay meeting place skills and the tools, but no time.

It just 1998 escort poor idle because the rest of the car is pretty much perfect. Any idea what a good price would be? If that shows a problem If compression is good, then you have a much easier problem to fix There is a common problem with this particular model and pior as ldle to figure out the problem and it's almost as if is a common computer problem. This is the 4th car identical to this, Heck one of them was even the same color. Exhast jammed against body. Ind my favorite of all time a boulder jamed between the block and frame.

If it runs correct the mounts would be the first thing I would inspect. Good Luck george herbert Engine idles erratically on 2. Phil Feinstein After all the checks you've done, the next thing I'd suspect would be the fuel pressure regulator. Pull the vacuum hose off and if it's wet with gas, then it's bad and needs to be replaced. The Escort is multi-point fuel injection, but doesn't always use a mass airflow sensor MAFit uses a manifold absolute pressure sensor MAP. The engine will flex back and forth a small amount and after a few years this will cause the hose to crack slightly. It won't set a code until it loses signal completely, but the car will run rough.

The '93 to '94 Taurus had the same type of issue, but the cause was the plug at the MAF sensor. I haven't heard if there has been a similar incident with the Escorts. Finally, there is a resnonance chamber in the fuel tank between the fuel pick up and the fuel pump. Replace it with a short length of fuel injection rated rubber hose and you will fix the leak. There is pressure to schrader valve and when i remove regulator under pressure there is fuel to that point. Whats next, cant afford to buy much more lucinda Okay so I just bought this car and it hasmiles on the axles, but the motor was replaced 3yrs ago.

It has a super rough idle now and this morning it stalled every time I came to a stop. I'm sick of paying ppl to tell me what's wrong and not doing anything about it I'm a student and a single mother I dnt have the time or money to keep spending.
