Why would a 1993 Ford Escort stall when in gear every time you stop but run better in neutral or park?

Your Idle air control (IAC valve) is probably sticking. Try cleaning it. If it idles too low, replace it for about $43.00

The vehicle would stall when put in gear would be the fuel pump. The fuel pump is very weak which would explain why in neutral the vehicle starts if it gear it would have to have more gas.

After changing the throttle control sensor and air flow control valve and cleaning the spark plugs the car does not stall, but sounds very bad like it is about to. Also i can rev the card, but as soon as i try and pull away, the revs die and the gas pedal does nothing? Please help

A vacuum leak or a faulty IAC (Idle Air Control) valve.

Well, it depends how much your horse is in the stall. If your horse is in there every day it should be cleaned every other day.

Only if your alternator is not working properly. If you are always charging your battery, check your alternator belt. That was the solution for my escort, a new $10.00 belt.

If the horse is in the stall frequently, then clean it frequently. Every day!

My 94 escort was doing the same thing. I replaced the throttle valve assembly and that seems to have done the trick. Hopefully that helps you out.

No. You will stall(or cut-out). This means that the car shuts down and then you have to clutch in and put it into neutral. Then(still on the clutch) turn on the car again.

first thing i would check, is that the choke is turning off completely

You have to clean your horse's stall every morning so the dung doesn't stay there to breed diseases

also it might have a little lose of power when running but no signs of ever trying to stall when it is rolling just when its stopped in neutral.

There are all kinds of reasons not to clean your horses stall out every day. But that is the best- every day. Sometimes this is not possible, a stall should be kept with little or no moisture on bedding. It is healthier for the horse and helps with every day grooming.

cold start switch on the side of or on top of the throttle body.

Either you've got a dead cell in the battery or the cable ends need to be cleaned and tightened.

User Avatar

probably so you do not go too fast and flip over. that would be a good thing to look up in the manual.

You should pick a horse's stall every day, and strip it off all the bedding once a week.

It may be out of oil, check your engine over for any damage and has it been in for a service lately.

Well... At my stables every morning when I get there I clean out the stalls. Ususally there is a lot of poop in there and If I was a horse I wouldn't want to live in a dirty stall. So I would say every morning or every day. I also put shavings in too.

Neutral or if you have your foot on the back break then you can only start it in 1st gear if in any other gear the bike will stall if its cold always start it in neutral or it wont start.

A horses stall should be cleaned every day. A horse can get a foot illness called thrush. Standing in a wet stall can cause this.
