I have the same problem. I changed plugs, wires, ignition control module, fuel regulator, fuel filter, O2 sensor. Compression check is 180psi. Swapped ignition coils with an old one. I think its the ECU. But I am going to turn up the throttle set screw first. No check eng light. Used the obd1 scanner no communication. Jumpered the plug. the check engine faulted 02 sensor. Already change that. Out of ideas. When it warms up runs like cramp during idle. After a minute at the light it shutsdown.
#23 of 178 Ford Escort Electrical/Engine Problems
Nov 27, 2006 (11:46 am)
I have a 93 ford escort wagon with a 1.9l. The check engine light was on for a while and then it just died one day. It will start back up if left for a while, and run for about 4 seconds before dying. After starting it will run fine, I held it at about 5 grand and there was no sputtering or anything and then after about 4 seconds something cuts it out. It just dies completly with no sputtering. Any advice would be much appreatied. Im thinking it has to be some sensor but i dont know what to try.

WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY ON NOT STARTING IT JUST TO THE FULL ON CAN YOU HEAR A WHINEING NOISE IF SO IT IS THE FUEL PUMP OR FUEL PUMP RELAY...THIS IS TYPICAL WITH AGE AND MILAGE, ALSO IF THAT IS THE PROBLEM I RECOMEND DEALER PARTS ON THIS AS OEM FUEL PUMPS LAST ALOT LONGER THEN AFTERMARKET ONES DO AND IT IS ALOT EASIER TO GET WARRANTY ON..
#26 of 178 HAVE THE ANSWER FOR YOUR STARTER CLICKING PROBLEMS
Feb 23, 2007 (9:27 am)
if you are finding that your starter on your escort just clicks, replace you body grounds and main power wire for the battier and add 2 more body grounds to you car. the clicking of your starter will stop and everything should go back to normarl again. like a 0 gage wire from the engine to the chase of the car and make sure they are well clean.

#28 of 178 Floating Idle
Jan 26, 2007 (7:45 am)
1999 Escort Wagon, 2L, manual, upgraded to everything past SE except choking seat belts, 130K miles.
At 120K engine lost two head bolts (cracked just past the head) on opposite corners ... right rear, left front. Replaced timing belt, water pump, shipped out the head (everything fine), etc. Since then the idle, when warm, stays at roughly (no tack) 1300 RPM for several minutes, then falls to roughly 600-700 RPM. "Give Ford $" light now stays on. Speed will not hold steady when car is ideling high ... I can't put it in 4th gear & hold speed, it falls, but not to proper idle. Mechanics have not fixed the problem. Over the last 10K, problem has increased in the duration (up to 2 minutes now) till normal RPM. This only happens when engine is at normal op. temp. & driven for 1/2 hour +.
Thanks for your advice.
#29 of 178 How do you time a 1999 ford escort
Apr 27, 2007 (11:04 am)
Hi im new here and was wondering if someone could help me out. My daughters boyfriends car is making a metalic noise when he revs it up. It idles fine with no noise but when he revs it up it makes the noise. It kinda reminds me of the older cars being out of time. I don't know squat about these newer cars so can someone out there tell me if it's possible that this could be the problem. Also, how do you time this car. thanks in advance.
