A good way of diagnosing a problem like that is to remember you need 3 things to run an engine. Fuel, air, and a spark. Make sure the engine is getting gas. Make sure the spark plugs are firing. Make sure your engine is getting air. By working your way through those areas, you'll likely find the problem.

I have a 1996 ford escort that will not start and it has a new starter on it and a new battery in it but it still will not start

Check fuel. plugs, battery, wires

Often cars that are parked overnight need to be recharged. It is possible that the battery has died and needs a replacement or a jump to start.

There could be several reasons why a 1997 Ford Escort will not start. A few reasons could be the starter, the battery, spark plugs and wires, or even a blown engine.

Does it turn over? Does it have spark? Does it have fuel?

Start with the fuel pump. I have found in purchasing vehicles that have been parked for any length of time that I had always had to replace the fuel pump, strainer and filter.

Bad starter Bad battery Bad connection on battery cables. Faulty ignition switch

either something shorted in the computer when re-connecting, or your grammar implies that you are trying to start it with no battery...which obviously would mean you should first re-connect the battery

Saturns don't like the cold. Keep your battery in good condition and try to garage it.

Have you tested the battery to see if it has power in it? If it has have you made sure the contacts are good? If they are is there a fuse that has blown.

User Avatar

It will start if the battery is fully charged. But you will soon (in less than an hour in most cases) end up with a dead battery requiring you to have the vehicle hauled to the garage anyways.

I don't own a 95 ford escort. But if I did, and the motor turned over but would not start, I'd look at either the ignition module or fuel pump first.

User Avatar

are you saying vehicle will not start when hot? if so, i would get battery checked if battery is old, it loses cranking amps and will not supply enough to start a hot engine

User Avatar

That's not a question. Try asking"Why won't my ford escort start?"

User Avatar

take off the timing belt cover and see if your timing belt is not shredded

If the battery is good and fully charged but the engine will not turn over then either the starter or the ignition switch is defective. Or you have a loose or corroded connection.
