01 Ford Escort ZX2 Changed plugs one at a time correctly gapped but now very rough idle sputters and check engine light is on?
If the check engine light is on you can bring the car to advance auto parts and they will, hook your car up to a machine that will tell you exactly what you need to replace for free If you used CHEAP plugs this will happen. My 98 ZX2 did the EXACT same thing When i put in the cheap plugs. Put the more expensive ones in and problem solved. I would go with the Motorcraft (ford) plugs about $6 a plug...Worth it because you'll see a dramatic increase in your gas mileage.

In addition to the previous person not knowing how to spell correctly, his procedure for timing the 1998 ford escort is incorrect. The 2.0 found in the escort and the escort ZX2 does not have a distributor. Instead it uses a coil pack. To time the 2.0 engine found in the escort it is a matter of lining up a timing mark on the cam pulley and setting the crank at top dead center (TDC)… Read More
