The question wasn't clear, but there is a fuel cutoff switch located in the trunk normally that can get triggered during an accident or even hitting a hard bump or pothole. Mine tripped on my 1994 escort when I hit a large pothole on a dirt road. Anyway, there is a cover you open and you can reset it there.
Fuel cutout switch is a safety item. It functions only in the event of a vehicle rollover, by cutting off the fuel supply from the gas tank. This is designed to limit the amount of free fuel in the event of a fire. ======================================================= Also , in a collision or maybe hitting a bad pothole , anything that jars the vehicle enough
The 1996 Ford Escort had a self-adjusting system. If pushing on the pedal will not solve the problem, you are most likely going to need to change the ratchet system in the pedal.
you may have trown a rod.
Try checking the gas cap. if it is not tight, the engine light tends to come on at random times
I had a v reg 55 escort van (1.8 non turbo diesel) and after a couple of turns tightening the throttle cable I got 97 but it was pushing it, gear box and engine won't let it go a lot faster.
I had a similar problem. Check your intake tube for cracks. If there is a crack it the motor will suck in more air and that throws off the Mass Air Flow Sensor.
NO. An 86 Escort is a 1st generation Escort and a 93 Escort is a 2nd generation.
Escort can be used as a verb and a noun. Verb: Will you escort me to the party? Noun: Will you be my escort?
A 91 engine will not fit in a 98 Escort. The 91 engine is from a generation II Escort whereas a 98 engine is from a generationIII Escort.
NO!! ford made the escort
There is probably air in the system. If the system was worked on for any reason, the sytem has to be purged of any air pockets.
