What could be wrong with a 97 Escort if the car turns over but wont start and the fuel filter spark plugs and wires have been replaced could it be the battery or a cylinder problem?
I would check for spark. Pull a spark plug , plug it back into wire,lay it on engine, and have someone crank engine over. If no spark, I would suspect the control module which is attached to the side of distributor. LAck of compression, fuel or spark. IF it "no start" started before changing the parts listed you may have unintentionally created an additional problem from guessing. Anyways, if you pull the air intake cover off to expose the throttle body and crank the engine, you will see a mist of fuel going into it; if you don't you have lack of fuel. IF you turn the key to the on position-not cranking, there should be a 3 second hum heard. The fuel pump engergizing the pressure into the lines. If the engine cranks over more quickly than normal, it may be a lack of compression problem, such as a timing belt. If you pull a plug, keep the wire hooked up to it, crank the engine, you should see it sparking. It is not the battery as the car is cranking. The typical problems I see with these are timing belts, fuel pumps and ignition coils. I am almost positive there is no distributer in the 97 escorts.
I was having the same problem with my daughter's escort. I replaced the cam position sensor and the problem stopped. Advanced Auto Parts will check the computer to find out the problem for free.

To replace the light bulbs in the sun visor vanity mirror on a 1991 Ford Escort LX, the mirror will have to be replaced. This part does not have replacement bulbs readily available. If the bulbs are not working it is a problem with a fuse as these run off the battery and are on the same circuit as the interior lights.
What is the problem if a '90 Ford Escort makes a clicking noise when you turn the wheel and a grinding noise when you accelerate?
For sure your cv joint is bad, and that can get expensive, my subaru has that problem right now, was quoted at least $500 to fix because it messes with the alignment and tire wear and other wear. expensive. I now have a 90 ford escort, with a dead battery at the moment. The grinding noise could be a wheel bearing. also replaced those before.
