#355 of 432 Stalling on highway
Dec 17, 2005 (11:32 am)
I have a 1994 ford escort 1.9L. The car stalled on the highway recently and went totally dead. Mechanic said it was the battery and not the alternator. Changed it out, and ran well for a month. THen same thing on highway, was hitting preset button on radio and the car staleld out going 70 mph on highway. Won't start now, but have all the electrical features. Dashboard lights say "Check Engine" and "Fuel Cutoff". Is this the fuel filter ro fuel pump...
#356 of 432 Problems starting my 92' Escort Wagon in cold weather
Dec 17, 2005 (1:54 pm)
I have a 1992 Escort Wagon with relative low mileage (89k) and in quite good condition.
However, lately it has one annoying ``feature'': I often have trouble starting it. I turn the ignition key, all lights go on as expected but nothing else happens, i.e., no noise/action from the engine/starter. I repeat that and eventually, after a few minutes/attempt, the crank kicks in and the engine starts right away. The battery should be fine, i replaced it only about 8 months ago. I assume it is a problem related to colder temperature as it happens only on a cold engine, mostly in the morning and only since it got colder (below zero celsius?) outside. Any idea about why and what to do about it? thanks!

My 92 ford escort wagon, stalled yesterday, with going about 20mph,it also has the same led chk engn, batt and oil then once you turn it over and it dosen't start the fuel cut off led is present. car was warm its not below 32' would take a jump charge. What resolved your problem? A buddy of mine says there is a cut off button someware with in the car?

I have had the same problem with my fuel pump switch popping up when I hit one of those famous Missouri Pot Holes. I found the stall out switch in the back end of the wagon it is on the right side over the rear tire; remove the little door plate and check it out. Sometimes it will just pop off after hitting a bump or running over some RR tracks to hard.

I checked the O2 sensor with a voltmeter and found the output to be above the 0.2-0.8 range that is specified for this sensor. The check engine light has not come on since replacing this sensor.
#364 of 432 94 escort suddenly no power
Jan 30, 2006 (9:01 pm)
I acualy have two escorts with problems. The firs is a 94 that suddenly has no power you might get to 20 mph in first and don't pull out in front of anybody. The car ran fine a week ago then it started this. Any help would be apreciated. The second is a 92 that ran great then sat for a while. I took it out to charge the battery and put gas in it. It ran great unitl I took a 15 mph corner then it died. It will turn over but will not fire. I checked fuel and spark and both are there. Help please...
