Will a 2001 escort 2.0 liter zetec engine work in a 1996 ford contour that has a 2.0 liter zetec engine and if so, what needs to be changed.

It's in the trunk and has a 6 cd cartridge changer, It skips real bad when I hit a bump and lately has not wanted to work at all.
I think I will have to replace it.
So, what is the easiest way to do this? And cheapest too.
#1483 of 1562 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 NO AC/HEAT after dashboard removal
May 19, 2009 (1:16 am)
My dashboard lights went out under my aftermarket cd player a few months back. I decided to take a look today and removed the aftermarket dash mount. I did not unplug any connectors or wiring while doing this. After I reinstalled the dash, I have no ac, will not blow any air. Checked all connections all is good. I will check the blower relay and AC fuse tomorrow but if that is not the issue, any ideas? Thanks!
#1484 of 1562 Possible fuel line issue?
May 24, 2009 (6:27 pm)
I have a '98 Escort Zx2, came across it about 2 weeks ago. The last 2 days when trying to leave work, it acts like it isn't getting fuel and pops while driving then dying half the time when I stop. This only happens during the hot part of the day. Never when its cool out. One person mentioned vapor lock but I unscrewed my gas cap last night and it happened again today. Anyone have any ideas as to why this happens?

Anyone have any ideas on how to get the condensation out of my headlight lenses, without taking the front bumper off?
#1486 of 1562 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 Cranks but Won't Start
May 30, 2009 (12:51 pm)
Who can help me get my 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 started? It'll crank, but the engine won't catch. I've got fuel in the tank. Fuel cutoff switch is not the problem. I've got the battery (brand new) hooked up to a trickle charger to keep it up to snuff. I've installed a new ignition coil, a new valve cover gasket, cleaned out all the oil in and around the spark plugs, and I've installed four new spark plugs. Same story. We can still smell the fuel fumes coming out of the exhaust when we crank the starter, which tells me it's not a fuel pump issue. --- Firestone suggested it was my factory alarm preventing the engine from starting. I'll believe them if I can figure out how to reset the alarm, but I can't find the "magic toggle switch" under the dash that's supposed to reset it. Anyone else have better ideas/suggestions? Anyone have this problem before? I've found a lot of blogs discussing the issue, but none providing answers. -Brian
