Stalling at a StopHere is advice:
  • It is probably the idle control solonoid on the throtle body. Take it off and clean it.
  • If that doesn't work, check the the fuel filter - it may be time to replace it. If that isn't it it could be the fuel pump is on its way out.
  • Replace your PCV Valve. This is a hose running from the top of your engine, going over your coils, into a rubber grommit. If you shake this hose, it should rattle. There will be a metal plug looking object. This is your PCV Valve. Replace. This reburns the excess gases in your valve covers & compression system.
  • I have a 94 escort wagon, and my problem was the Idle Air Control sensor(IAC). It is located right on top of the thermostat housing. I replaced it for about 50 bucks, and she runs like gold now!

Cleaning the Idle Air Control (IAC) may work, but make sure that the unit installed in your car is one that can be cleaned. There are two designs. One, which is a straight unit can be cleaned, the other, which has a gizmo that turns off at 90 deg. can not be cleaned. That unit has a special coating on the inside, which is destroyed when you attempt to clean it. If the car runs OK normally, but stalls at idle with the AC on, it is most likely a dirty or faulty IAC unit.

Some of the reasons your Escort would stall after 40 seconds at idle are: 1. Vacuum leak. 2. Plugged fuel filter. 3. Leaking EGR. 4. Plugged PCV valve 5. Air filter clogged. 6. Fuel pump below capacity. 7. Leaking head gasket. 8. Camshaft lobes worn 9. Idle Air Control (IAC) valve.

Having the speedometer jump and the engine stall in the 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo could be a problem with the idle and the transmission. The transmission slipping can cause the speedometer to jump.

No because they are different motors which means they are different transmissions.

Maybe you've got a power steering problem. Like something getting stuck mechanically or maybe even a hydraulic problem.

The 1994 Ford Escort LX uses R-134a Freon. This type of refrigerant was used in all Ford Escorts from 1994 through 2002.

Coolant entering the combustion chamber and the oil pan. This will cause serious engine damage and stalling due to the plugs getting wet. You should not even be driving a vehicle with a blown head gasket unless you do not care if you destroy the engine.

The primary cause of a 1994 Honda Accord to stall when the gas is low is water or contaminants in the gas tank. When the gas level is low, the fuel pickup will pull contaminants that would otherwise be floating well away from the inlet.

Refilling clutch fluid in a 1994 Ford Escort is very easy to do. The clutch fluid can be refilled by filling up the brake reservoir.

No, the 94 escort is a 2nd generation and the 97 is a third generation. 1991-1996 is 2nd generation and 1997-2002 is a third generation.

Diagrams of a 1994 Ford Escort can be found in a factory service repair manual. These book explain in detail every part of the vehicle using picture, diagrams, and step by step instructions.

It would be in the owners manual or if you don't have one you could get a service manual at any auto parts that would have a diagram.
