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.

It could be your MAF sensor. Mass air flow sensor that measures the air going into the intake. This could likely cause sluggish acceleration.

Check the temperature sensor.

Why would the Speed sensor on a 1994 escort leak after new clutch was installed what could cause this?

The vehicle speed sensor is located in the transaxle. If the technician forgot to pop the sensor far enough back into the hole, the tranny fluid could potentially leak out. I know, because this happened to me when I replaced my Speed sensor.

That happened to my 1996 F-150. Ended up being my oxygen sensor. It would crank, but not start.

What would cause hesitation during acceleration on a Ford Escort?

About a million things. Bad gas, plug wires, plugs, throttle position sensor, timing off, idle air control valve, clogged injectors, or maybe even the coil pack. The easiest to change and probably one of the best bets in the plugs and wires.

Would an alternator failure on a 94 Escort cause engine not to fire?

It would if the battery voltage was lowered enough to cause it not to fire.

This will be caused by either worn wheel bearings or worn outer cv joints on the driveshaft which will eventually give out if not dealt with immediately

No, a bad crankshaft sensor would cause the car not to start and run.

What causes jerky acceleration in 98 3800?

Several possibilities: Engine issues -Clogged fuel filter, Crank position sensor or cam position sensor going out intermittently (should throw a code), ignition coil breaking down(unlikely - would usually cause stumbling all the time), bad gas or water in the gas(unlikely),oxygen sensor (would cause one or two jerks during a typical acceleration, should throw a code). If it's the transmission, it may be "slipping" or have a clogged filter or valve body causing hard shifts.

In a 1998 escort what would cause a automatic transmission not to shift into overdrive?

Linkage adjust

Does the crankshaft sensor cause a 1997 Chevy Malibu to choke before cranking?

A faulty crank sensor would cause no spark and no fuel.

Does acceleration have a negative or positive value if the velocity is increasing speed?

In this case, acceleration is positive. Negative acceleration would cause the object to slow down (decelerate.)

Why would a 1989 Honda Accord stall on acceleration?

There are several things that can cause your 1989 Honda Accord to stall on acceleration. The most common cause is a plugged or dirty air filter.

How do you install a MAP sensor enhancer on a 1988 Ford Escort The answer I received says I don't need the enhancer. I thought if the car had a map sensor it would need the enhancer. Why not?

no need for map sensor enhancers on cars before 1996...

What would cause a 92 Ford Escort to vibrate while in drive?

Perhaps an out of balance wheel. If this is the cause it will be worse at a certain speed.

What would cause an object to have a smaller acceleration?

Newton taught everybody that Net Force = Mass * Acceleration. Since we're talking about acceleration, we can rearrange that to be Acceleration = Net Force / Mass. If you want to decrease the acceleration of an object, you would need to decrease the net force applied to it or increase its mass (or both).

What would cause a 1994 Grand Am to lose acceleration power?

Could be a bad Mass Air Flow sensor. About a three hundred dollar part. When The MAF sensor goes bad, the car will crawl when accelerating. The unit is in between the main fuel injection assembly and the air filter. The air filter hose feeds directly into the MAF sensor.
