What is wrong if a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 surges when the AC or heat is on and also seems to overheat and stall very fast on the highway?
Your surging is probably caused by your A/C charged too high. Use your key to relieve SOME of the pressure at the valve under the hood (it looks like a tire valve). A little green liquid might be released too, so don't stand directly in front of it. Keep letting out a little at a time until it stops.
If your car overheats after slowing from highway speeds you may need a new radiator or cooling fan. The surging could also be caused by a bad or reversed cooling fan, or air in the cooling system (just because the reservoir is full doesn't mean the system doesn't have air in it).
Never remove refrigerant unless you know it's overfilled, plus it's illegal to vent refrigerant to the atmosphere.
Sunfire surges after starting up but runs fine after the 1st block When first running it seems to surge and then when you start to drive it it seems like it has no power then will lurch and run ok?
What do i need to check because when i first crank up my 1992 ford escort with a 1.9 engine it seems real sluggesh then after a half mile it seems to improve i do not have a thermostat in it?
Blown fuse is the likely culprit. Could also be a bad switch, fan motor, or resistor pack. ==Do Not Overlook= the Ground wire. I have a 96 escort...had same problem 3 times...fuse is 1st thing to check...then the ground wire (which seems to have separated and shorted out twice now.) Since being discovered and fixed, everything is fine!
I have wondered this myself. I have a Passport 8500 x50 and have driven right by a patrol car with the guy shooting his radar and my detector doesn't register anything. It seems to register when cops are shooting K, Ka, and Laser in other places. Unless they're not shooting at all and just looking like it? But that seems weird.
You have a 96 Beretta and the electic fan only works when the temperatue gets high or when you cut the AC on what should you do?
All ZX2 transmissions are interchangeable. The 97 and up Ford Escort Sedan manual transmission will fit the manual transmission ZX2 with minor modification. There are 2 or 3 transmission to engine bolts that will not line up. The starter mounting holes on the Sedan transmission are the same except one is threaded. The threaded hole will need to be drilled out to accept the starter bolts from the ZX2. Everything else lines up and works…
Any console will overheat, it depends what you are doing on it and where its placed. If the Xbox is in a small area like a enclosed cabinet, you will find that the area will get warm and will increase the heat of the Xbox. However, the new Xbox 360 Slim has a better cooling system, which seems to help considerably.
Lightning outside tends to make a house seem more delicate because there will sometimes be power surges or other anomalies that will make it seem like the house won't hold up in a storm. Lightning makes a person feel less in control of their environment, therefore making it seem like even their house isn't safe.
Sounds confusing, but there seems to be a fair amount of fault all around. Was car #2 pushing a disabled vehicle onto the highway, or did he rear-end #1 on the service ramp? If disabled, it shouldn't have been on the highway except behind a tow truck (I know, lots of us have done it, but it's still against the law.), so whoever was behind the wheel and the pushing driver were both at fault…
I have same question for my 1999 Escort. I think the trick is to remove the glove compartment enslosure (seems to be just a few screws holding it in). Once removed, there should be enough room to locate the controller on the back side of the radio facelplate, and secure it with the torx screw. There's not enoug slack in the cable to attach it with the radio face plate assembly outside of the dashboard…
the timing belt is located on the left side of the engine in the engine bay. Most mechanics will probably have to disconnect the motor mount to elevate the engine to access the cover and belt. the cover has three bolts holding it. Of course, you would have to remove the serpentine belt to access. Be aware of the serpentine belts positioning, it seems to be a common question! Oops, misunderstood the question , thought…
You can't. Tilt wheel was never an option on Ford Escort. The preceeding statement is FALSE. I own a 88 ford escort gt and it has a tilt steering wheel. Indeed, it's causing problems for me. The tile wheel is moving freely and the steering column cover is loose. Car loses all electrical power and dies when the wheel is moving of it's own accord. Seems like it's choking off some wires or something because…
88 Chevy caprice and when i drive on the highway she seems to drop down and drag out to 50 mph unless i floor it than she kicks up there what could your problem be?
Who is at fault when the driver pulls out onto highway hit left front panel of your car had damage to rt rear panel of her car and got a ticket?
Can't say definitively without knowing full details of the incident, but, from what I'm reading, it seems as if the other driver failed to yield right-of-way to a vehicle already in the lane of travel. Furthermore, it seems that's the consensus of police responding to the incident, as she was cited.
