Is there low fuel light on 96 Ford Escort?
I was looking at the 1996 Ford Escort Owner Guide and it doesn't show
anything about it having a low fuel warning light ( or a check " gage " light )
What does it mean if the low fuel indicator light does not work but the gas gauge does on a 1997 Ford Contour?
The dip tube (fuel pickup) in the gas tank may not go to the bottom of the tank so the car can run out of gas before it is low enough to trigger the low fuel light (my contour has this fault). From "out of gas" to all the way full, is about 11 gallons in my car. You may have a light burnt out in your dashboard that needs to be replaced.
Several things could cause this. Some of the possibilities are; contaminated or old fuel, no ignition (spark) or ignition timing incorrect, incorrect cam timing, problems in the fuel management or delivery system (fuel pump not working or low pressure, fuel filter clogged, bad control computer or wiring, bad injector(s) or wiring, very low or no compression, ect)
